    Fun Berkshire Facts

    Armishaws Fun Facts

    Takes the Biscuit

    At one time Reading was home to the world’s largest biscuit factory. Huntley and Palmer produced biscuits that were sent across the Empire, even Captain Scott and his team took Huntley and Palmer biscuits on their ill-fated expedition to the South Pole. Reading prison was called ‘The Biscuit Factory’, Reading FC were nicknamed ‘the biscuit men’ and the town was referred to as ‘Biscuitopolis’.

    Did They Just Sing ‘Fart’?

    The oldest known song in the English language was discovered in Reading Abbey. The pretty ditty called ‘Summer is Icumen’ was written in 1260. It also happens to contain the oldest recorded use of the word ‘fart’ (rhymed with ‘heart’ perhaps?).

    Armishaws Fun Facts

    Magna-ificent

    On the 15th of June 1225, King John signed the Magna Carta at Runnymede. The site which was difficult to get to made it the perfect location for the rebellious barons to face the king without fear of a surprise attack. The Magna Carta was the blueprint for modern democracy and English law, taking power from the King and ensuring rule was fairer and more just (well, for rich folk, it took a while for the notion to apply for commonfolk).

    Armishaws Fun Facts

    Tree-mendous

    The site at Runnymede was used by Alfred the Great to assemble his earls, settle disputes and set laws. It is home to the National Trust’s oldest tree, which was already elderly when King Henry VIII courted Anne Boleyn nearby. In fact, the tree is estimated to be over 2,500 years old which means it was expelling carbon when the likes of Alexander the Great, Plato and Buddha were alive.

    Rocky Horror

    The setting for the high camp musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show is in Berkshire. Fans of the movie will recognise Oakley Court Hotel near Windsor as the home of Frank N Furter, the cross-dressing doctor played by the excellent Tim Curry. “It’s just a jump to the left…”

    Scandalous

    Cliveden House Hotel was the meeting point of Christine Keeler and MP and Secretary of State for War, John Profumo. The young model was naked in the swimming pool at the time of their meeting and the resultant affair brought about the downfall of the then sitting government.

    Armishaws Fun Facts

    Monkey Island

    Not real ones. The 3rd Duke of Marlborough, Charles Spencer, commissioned a French artist to paint murals of monkeys performing human activities such as fishing, hunting with rifles, and smoking. He also filled the island with life-sized sculptures of monkeys. The island had previously been given the name ‘Monkey Island’ because it had been visited by an order of monks who lived nearby (so nothing to do with monkeys at all!).

    I Should Cocoa!

    Reading University houses the International Cocoa Quarantine Centre. All cocoa plants traded internationally travel through the centre to help protect from disease, in fact many of the nation’s most-loved chocolate bars owe their very existence to fact that their root plants have passed through the facility at some time.
