About This Book

Bracknell is one of the New Towns built after the Second World War to relieve the pressure of housing and industry in London. But the history of Bracknell goes back much further.

Early hunter gatherers, Iron Age people and Romans have all called Bracknell their home. Hidden in the royal hunting ground of Windsor Forest for many centuries, the village began to develop with the arrival of the railway. Local brickyards expanded, their output being used in many important buildings, both in Britain and abroad.
