On the picturesque banks of the River Thames in Berkshire lies Windsor, overflowing with rich royal history and dominated by its Castle. Across the iron bridge on the opposite bank is Eton, often named as the prettiest town in England, where the majestic spires of Eton College act as a magnet for tourists as they make their way along the mile-long High Street. Both towns rely on tourism for their economy, therefore you would think that, with so many people making this one of the most famous destinations in the country, everything in the area would have been discovered and signposted. However, there is much heritage here of which the residents and regular visitors are unaware.
In this book, author Yvonne Moxley delves deep into the history of both towns to uncover some lesser-known stories and exciting finds that are hidden from view. Her research reveals the hidden heritage, remarkable truths and intriguing facts.
