A little bit of history
The present-day civil parish of Sunningdale came into existence in 1894 under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1894; the village had previously been part of Old Windsor. It was, until 1995, partly in Berkshire and partly in Surrey. The Surrey area of the village, known as Broomhall, was also split between the boroughs of Surrey Heath and Runnymede. This original arrangement caused problems and was resolved only after much consultation locally between the two county councils, three borough councils and four parish councils. As a result, Sunningdale is now situated entirely in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, in the Royal County of Berkshire.
