Administrative/Biographical history:

Hamhaugh Island is situated in the River Thames, near Shepperton. It is accessed by bridge. It was first used for holiday camps around 1900, from which a small community began to grow on the island and small timber shacks or bungalows were erected. In 1920 the residents bought a communal green in the centre of the island on which they held entertainments such as dances. The housing was gradually modernised.


Scope and content/abstract:

Records of the Hamhaugh Islanders' Association comprising drawings, postcards and photographs of the island, including the first camps and bungalows, aerial views, weirs, floods, and ice; and administrative records of the Assocation including rules, notices and reports.
