A brief history of WindsorA brief history of Windsor

Windsor has been around since prehistoric times and is a town on the River Thames. It has been used for 100s of years as a way for traders in the Roman and Saxon times, who travelled across the River Thames in order to get to other parts of the borough. Windsor was first a village but then grew into a town, due to it being by the River Thames, enabling traders to export goods through the water ways across to parts of London.

The historic Windsor Castle occupies 13 acres of land which is above the Thames River. It was William the Conqueror whom in 1070 developed the Windsor castle but out of wood. In the 12th century, it was rebuilt in stone. Windsor castle was strengthened and improved by a few of the Kings of the United Kingdom. These kings were namely Henry II and Henry III.

During the 18th century, Windsor improved through an act of Parliament of 1769. This act set up a body of men responsible for paving, cleaning, and lighting the streets.

The lower ward of Windsor castle's surrounding encompasses St. George's Chapel and the Albert Memorial Chapel. St. George's Chapel, designed to be the chapel of the Garter's Order, was created by Edward IV and is an example of Perpendicular Gothic-style architecture's best examples. St. George’s chapel is one of the many historic chapels where several members of the monarchy have been buried and where many royal weddings have also taken place.

In 1827, gas street lighting was introduced across Windsor, and many other improvements were made to the town. Some of these additional improvements included a railway station from London that could read to Windsor. These improvements enabled the town to grow further and the population to increase.
