Berkshire History

berkshire-historyBerkshire History covers the ‘historic county’ of Berkshire, that is the original county (including detached parts of Wiltshire only officially merged into it in 1844). Subsequent administrative boundary changes in 1895, 1911 and 1974, with the addition and loss of certain areas, are largely irrelevant to a history-based website. Officially, the historic county has never been abolished, but this is rarely recognised (further information available at the Association of British Counties).
