Nearly doubling its population over the last twenty-five years, and with more growth still expected, Didcot has both a bright future and an interesting past. Despite dating back to the Iron Age, Didcot largely owes its existence to the railway that was laid down in 1839. Since then, Didcot has grown as a dormitory town for those who commute to London, Reading or Oxford for work. Its role as an ordnance depot during the First and Second World Wars drove further growth, helped along in the post-war period by the nearby Atomic Energy Research Establishment. From its quiet rural origins to a bustling, thriving location, author Brian Lingham explores the history of this exciting town in Didcot Through Time.
