    5 Quickfire Windsor Facts

    1. Famous Faces
      Not all Windsor neighbours have featured on coins of the realm, other famous faces have taken up residency in Windsor. Sir Elton John, Jimmy Page, Sir Billy Connolly, Sir Michael Caine, James Blunt, Nick Faldo, William Shakespeare, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Heston Blumenthal, and Terry Wogan have all lived here.
    2. Old Windsor
      It wasn’t the first Windsor. Now known as ‘Old Windsor’ the smaller village to the north gave its name to the royal castle. As the new settlement grew it took the name of its predecessor. Old Windsor was home to Edward the Confessor in the 10th century prior before Windsor Castle became the royal residence.
    3. Royal Windsor
      It’s not just the castle and new town that pinched the name. Our current royal family had the German name ‘Saxe-Coburg-Gotha’ at the start of the 20th century. In 1919, due to WWI and hostilities with Germany, King George V (Queen Elizabeth’s grandfather) took the name of ‘Windsor’.
    4. Windsor Castle
      The oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world during its life Windsor Castle has been home to 40 reigning monarchs. You might think the battlements are purely ornamental but the castle. Today things are more friendly, in fact if you fancy a party you’ll find over 18,000 bottles of wine stored below ground in the cellars.
    5. Safe House
      Despite two previous scrapes, the castle remains unblemished during WWII. It’s believed German pilots were given instructions not to target Windsor Castle which became the refuge of the royal family during the conflict. Queen Elizabeth even spent some night sleeping in the former dungeons as they were among the strongest points of the castle (we’re guessing they were given a bit of a makeover first).

    Thank You Over’s

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.

    - Helen Williams – May 2021

    Putting the ‘Royal’ into Royal Berkshire, Windsor has been the home of our Royal Families since William the Conqueror first gave Harold one in the eye.

    12th Century

    Over's Removals

    Originally the royal home had been in what is now Old Windsor, William built a new castle two miles down the road and even stole the name for his new palace. The first wooden construction was rebuilt in stone in the 12th century. The mighty des-res is recognised as being the world’s largest and oldest inhabited castle. It has been besieged twice (1214 and 1216), caught fire once (1992) and was also used to imprison King Charles I at the end of the English Civil War (soon after poor Charles was sent to London where he literally lost his head!). A young Princess Elizabeth and the Royal Family lived in the castle during WWII and reputedly even slept in the former dungeons during air raids.

    14th Century

    Windsor did briefly have a prison but after a number of inmates escaped in 1309 (they headed to a church, were caught and most executed) and in the resulting furor, King Edward decreed that the prison should be moved elsewhere. One of the most popular monarchs to live there was Queen Victoria, although not with everyone, while leaving the castle on one occasion, 29-year-old Roderick Maclean shot at the Queen’s carriage. At his trial he was found insane and sent to Broadmoor.

    20th Century

    In 1909 Windsor became the site of the world’s first airmail service that took off from the Long Walk, carrying mail to and from Hendon in North London. The town having been reshaped by the Royal Family, in 1917 things were reversed when the then Saxe-Coburg-Gotha clan changed their distinctly German sounding name to Windsor, which was deemed more suitable considering the nation’s anti-German sentiment of WWI.

    Modern Day

    Rarely out of the spotlight, the town received yet more attention in 2012 when Eton Dorney Lake was the site of rowing and canoe events for the 2012 Olympics. A temporary bridge was even built to help get spectators across the Thames.

    With royal neighbours, great shops, good restaurants, excellent transport links, Windsor has always been attractive for home buyers, has had a large number of celebrity residents and continues to be one of the UK’s most sought after locations.
