Much of the documented history of Downton is scattered around the internet as well as in various libraries. Hopefully we will bring at least some of it together in this page!
What's on this site?
As well as the front page of this website, we have the main menu item of "The Downton Trail". This gives an outline of a walk around
Downton, pointing out some of the many interest points along the way, and is an excellent introduction.
For more detail however, we have the website of the Downton Historical Society, (click here) which is well worth a look.
And for a more detailed website, British History On-line (click here) is very good.
Finally, a collection of old photos - click here
