The suburban area encompassing the towns of Windsor and Eton has long been one of England’s most popular historic sites, as home to the most familiar royal retreat, Windsor Castle, and the famous public school Eton College. This street plan, drawn up by the Historic Towns Trust, reconstructs the towns as they were situated in the mid-nineteenth century, at a time when they had been revitalised by substantial urban redevelopment, the coming of two railways, and Queen Victoria’s residence from 1840. It will be an invaluable tool for local historians and genealogists, as well as those with a particular interest in the area’s royal and academic affiliations.
