BERKSHIRE RECORD OFFICE

There are very few counties that can call themselves ‘Royal’, in fact to the very best of our knowledge there is only one, and that’s Berkshire.

It therefore makes sense that Berkshire have some pretty impressive records to keep and if you take on a commission to help with design projects you know all too well that some very important people might be watching!
