About Crowthorne

The 'Crow Thorn' was originally a local landmark on the moorland which covered this part of Windsor Forest. It is marked at the junction of the Devil's Highway (the Roman road from London to Silchester) and the Sandhurst to Bracknell Road - now called Brooker's Corner - on Roque's Map of 1761. By 1823, there were two dwellings nearby and one survives today as Edgebarrow Cottage. It was then a roadside tearoom. The Berkshire Moors are a largely forgotten yet unique part of the county's natural landscape. Although much built upon, they still survive in part and can be best viewed on foot, or whilst travelling along the Crowthorne by-pass from Sandhurst to Bracknell.
