  • Berkshire County Council was formed in 1889. There was a reorganisation in 1974, with a county council and 6 Districts; Abingdon, Didcot and Wantage were vtransferred to Oxfordshire, while Eton and Slough were transferred from Buckinghamshire to Berkshire.
  • Further reoganisation in 1998 saw Berkshire County Council abolished. The county is now divided between 6 unitary authorities: Bracknell Forest, Reading, Slough, West Berkshire, Windsor & Maidenhead, and Wokingham..
