When I moved to Old Windsor back in the early 1980s I was fortunate enough to find a copy of the history of the villiage up until the late 1970s. This was written by a Mr.G.G.Thomason whom I am indebted to by allowing me to reproduce in its original form for the consumption of all parties on the World Wide Web. The design you see on this page is from an enlarged line drawing of a Saxon ornament in bronze, little more than an inch long, which was found during excavations in Old Windsor in the 1950s. It has been dubbed "The Kingsbury Beast", and can be seen in the exhibition at the Windsor Guildhall.

So, come with me into Old Windsor's past.
