About This Book

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Reading Football Club was founded in 1871, the same year as the FA Cup, and is the oldest football league club south of the River Trent
  • Newbury Racecourse housed a prisoner-of-war camp during the First World War
  • The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s current coat of arms features three acorn sprigs – one for each of the Middleton children, who were born in Berkshire 

The Little Book of Berkshire is an intriguing, fact-packed compendium of places, people and events in the county, from its earliest origins to the present day.

Here you can read about the important contributions Berkshire has made to the history of the nation, and meet some of the great men and women – the eccentrics and the scoundrels – with whom its history is littered.

Packaged in an easily readable ‘dip-in’ format, visitors and locals alike will find something to amuse, surprise and entertain them in this remarkably engaging little book.
