Berkshiredownsvillages.co.uk is optimised for browsing on a laptop or desktop computer. It can be browsed on a tablet or smart phone and links and thumbnails generally work as intended except links in the horizontal menu bar which may not work, thereby denying access to parts of the website. Browsing Berkshiredownsvillages on a smart phone is not ideal because of the size of the screen.

Berkshiredownsvillages.co.uk has now been superceded by a new site berksandmarlboroughdownsvillages.co.uk which contains photos and information about villages in the adjacent Marlborough Downs as well as all the villages in the Berkshire Downs. Please visit the new site.

Bing maps provide a choice of three views of the area, i.e.
- a road map to show the location of the village,
- an Ordnance Survey map for more detail, or
- an aerial view for added interest.

The greater detail on the Ordnance Survey maps (e.g. footpaths, woods, churches, pubs etc.) make them particularly useful for exploring the villages and surrounding area on foot.

All the Bing maps and views can be printed.


Oxfordshirevillages.co.uk is a sister site to Berkshiredownsvillages.co.uk and is a similar guide to all the villages throughout Oxfordshire. Why not have a look.


Nowadays most villages are cluttered with power and telephone poles and road signs and parked vehicles and unfortunately it is often impossible to take unspoiled photographs. Wheelie bins too ruin the appearance of a village. Although I try to avoid refuse collection days regrettably sometimes this has just not been possible.
