    Berkshire Facts – Did You Know…

    1. How Old Are Yew?
      Berkshire is home to the Ankerwycke Yew. According to local folklore, it was under this very yew tree yew tree, which is over 2,500 years old, that the Magna Carter was signed and where Henry VIII wooed and eventually proposed to Anne Boleyn, causing young Anne to literally lose her head!
    2. Magna Carter
      Whether there was or wasn’t a yew tree may be up for debate, but the Magna Carter, which formed the blueprint for modern democracy and was cited in the writing of the American Constitution, was signed at Runnymede in Berkshire. King John was left with no choice but to sign the document by a force of rebellious barons and lords, the charter gave greater rights to the common man (although really gave more protection to those with wealth than those lower down the social scale).
    3. Farty Song
      Discovered in Reading Abbey Summer Is Icumen is the oldest known song in the English language. Written around 1260, it also has the di-stink-tion (see what we did there?) of containing the first written use of the word ‘fart’.
      “The ewe bleats after the lamb
      The cow lows after the calf.
      The bullock stirs, the goat farts,
      Merrily sing, Cuckoo!”
    4. The Last King
      Following the discovery of the body of King Richard III under a car park in Leicester, the same team now believe the remains of Henry I (England’s last undiscovered King) might lie in Reading. Henry built Reading Abbey as his final resting place and while the Abbey is now little but ruins, the team believe that like Richard, Henry’s body lies somewhere under the car park.
    5. D-Day & The General
      Picturesque Greenham Manor in Berkshire was the unlikely spot where General Eisenhower watched some of the 10,000 missions on route to the Normandy beaches on D-Day. Nearby Inkpen in Berkshire was also used as a secret training base by the 9th Parachute Regiment whose job was to destroy the heavily fortified Merville Battery. Secrecy was everything so commanding officerLieutenant Colonel Terrence Otway, arranged for members of the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) to visit the base and try and tempt the troops to spill the beans. Men who failed were had their 48 hr leave pass cancelled!
    6. Panda Crossing
      Berkshire was home to the world’s first Zebra crossing. Opened Slough High Street on the 31st of October 1951, it was followed 11 years later by the short-lived and little known ‘panda crossing’. The simplicity of the zebra crossing (although originally blue and yellow, and red and white stripes were considered) proved a hit and was copied around the world. Much like their zoological counterparts, panda crossings, which had triangles rather than stripes, were soon endangered, and due to the complex and confusing light system involved, they were made extinct.
    7. Record Breakers
      Weird & wonderful things you might not expect, but will find in Berkshire…
      – The UK’s largest picnic bench (18.4 metres), Lily Hill Park, Bullbrook.
      – The world’s largest and oldest inhabited castle, built in 1070, Windsor Castle has been home to 40 reigning monarchs.
      – The world’s first zebra crossing, opened in Slough in 1951.
      – The Ostrich in Colnbrook is England’s 3rd oldest pub.
      – The first ever Little Chef restaurant opened in Reading, in 1958, before hitting the road.
      – Europe’s largest lion, Reading’s Maiwand Lion statue is 31 feet long and weighs 16 tons.
      – The first ever Cox’s apple was grown by Richard Cox in Ascot in 1825.
    8. I’m In Charge!
      Royal Berkshire’s world-renowned Eton College has educated lords, earls, princes and kings. For some a controversial statistic, this single school has also produced 20 of the 46 British Prime Ministers. Other fames names to have attended Eton include; Bear Grylls (explorer/presenter), Tom Hiddleston (actor), Hugh Laurie (actor), George Orwell (writer), Damien Lewis (actor), Eddie Redmayne (actor), John Turnbull (presenter), Aldous Huxley, Matthew Pinsent (Olympian) and Sir Ranulph Fiennes (explorer).
    9. Hot Patootie
      Spooky looking Oakley Court appears as Frank N. Furter’s mansion in Richard O’Brien’s cult hit musical The Rocky Picture Show which starred Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Meatloaf. Conversely, Mapledurham House is the original setting for Toad of Toad Hall. More racy yet far less salacious but you can’t do the Time Warp at Toad Hall (“It’s just a jump to the left…!”).

    About Berkshire

    The county that featured in Asser’s biography of Alfred the Great written in 893, it was originally named ‘Bearrocscir’, ‘Bearroc’ being a Celtic word meaning ‘hilly’. In the following centuries both county’s boundaries and spellings changed until 1957 when it became the Royal County of Berkshire by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, due to it’s long connection with the various royal households and families (40 reigning monarchs in total) that have made Windsor Castle and therefore Berkshire home.

    The county does indeed have a royal heritage, it’s also had a pretty storming one, and it’s fair to see the people of Berkshire certainly don’t turn away from a good scrap! The county was on the frontline during King Alfred’s sustained conflict with the Vikings. He set up a number of strongholds in the area to help keep the pesky Scandinavians at bay. In 1070, four years after conquering England and making himself King, William the Conqueror built Windsor Castle, which has been greatly extended over the years, as a means of controlling the local population.

    Berkshire was once again right in the thick of things during the English Civil war with two particularly notable battles in Newbury. 40 years later Berkshire saw the only real military action of the short-lived Glorious Revolution when William of Oranges troops swept aside the feeble resistance of James II.

    Berkshire also played a huge role in both World Wars, in particular for secret training and bases and airfields for the RAF.

    Today, thanks in no small part to its royal connections, Berkshire is one of England’s most visited counties, the castle alone draws in 1,500,000 visitors each year. Modern communications have seen a huge boom in small businesses and start-ups in Berkshire, with design, comms, artisan foods and drink, all at the forefront of the county’s creativity and commercial drive.

    Things to do & see

    Berkshire is most definitely horse country. Newbury, Windsor, Ascot, are just three of the county’s famous racecourses, then there are areas such as Great Windsor Park with miles of riding tracks and is the home of England’s largest polo park.

    If horses aren’t your thing, how about Lego? Legoland offers a fantastic family day out with rides, shows and row-upon-row of brick-building genius. The River Thames is another wonderful attraction with historic river cruises, party boats, canoes, kayaks and other types of boat hire.

    Foodies will also be spoilt for choice, the county is home to some of the UK’s Michelin starred restaurants including the Fat Duck at Bray, owned by culinary scientist, Heston Blumenthal.

    Reading Festival is one of the UK’s biggest parties, attracting huge acts from around the world, while smaller festivals cater for a huge range of different music styles, comedy, theatre, literature and history, so there’s always somewhere to have a good time.


    Berkshire is within easy commuting distance of London, with trains heading to Paddington and Waterloo. Motorists have miles and miles of country roads to explore (with fine pubs and hostelries along the say) plus the M3, M4 and M25 motorways bisecting the county. Berkshire also is in the unique position of giving access to the South Downs, the Cotswolds and the West Country. The nearest major airports are Heathrow to the North and Southampton to the South.
