Welcome to New Landscapes

New Landscapes was a New Opportunities Fund project undertaken at the Royal Berkshire Archives, formerly the Berkshire Record Office, and completed in 2004. It made use of the digital technologies available at the time to provide access to historic manuscript maps and documents online. The maps and land awards on this site show the process of enclosing the common fields of the county of Berkshire between 1738 and 1883.

Explore the links to find out more about enclosure, to search the documents available on this site, or view digital images of the documents themselves.
