Map of Berkshire
The Royal County of Berkshire, named due to the presence of Windsor Castle, is located to the west of London in the M4 corridor with none of the county further than around ten miles from the motorway.
Navigable by water as much as land, The River Thames flows through the north east of the county while the Kennet and Avon Canal runs across the south of Berkshire, through Hungerford and Newbury where it meets the Thames in Reading.
Spanning 487 square miles, Berkshire borders Hampshire, Surrey, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Wiltshire. Much of West Berkshire sits within the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which also comprises the Ridgeway National Trail.
