Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Berkshire
We have a range of detailed maps for Berkshire towns and we also cover the whole county at the Inch to the Mile scale.
Here are the details.
All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.
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..
See This Page for a summary of the county's local government history.
