Photographic History - Village Characters - Bill Cooley

Bill Cooley, Farmer

The photograph shows Bill driving his tractor and trailer on North Field with the Windsor Relief Road (Royal Windsor Way: A332) in the background. Bill took over Little Common Farm after the death of his father. Many will remember him and his wife Joan delivering their milk.

Bill was the only Eton Wick resident to achieve the distinction of becoming Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (in 1987) after serving many years as Councillor and a Justice of the Peace.
