Geography of Bracknell
Bracknell is located in the lovely county of Berkshire in southern England.
The majestic Thames River meanders through Berkshire, and the river valley is
renowned for its charming woodlands of oak, ash and alder, as well as rolling
countryside and delightful meadows, all interspersed with winding walks.
Conveniently located close to London, Bracknell is within 20 minutes drive
of Reading, a busy commercial centre, and only an hour from London (depending
on traffic). It's proximity to the M25 circular route makes motoring access
Bracknell also enjoy lovely adjacent countryside. The meadows become a carpet
of bright wild flowers and plants during the spring and summer months, with
golden Meadow buttercups, blue Devil's-bit Scabious, and purple Meadow Thistle.
In July and August the sweet scent of Meadowsweet blossoms produces a heady
aroma. Not surprisingly, walking in this area is popular and trails are numerous.
The countryside is also rich in animal life with hundreds of species of animals,
birds and insects. During the spring the Orange tip butterfly darts low over
the land in search of the Cuckoo Flower on which it lays its tiny orange eggs.
Damsel and dragonflies breed in the ditches and along the riverbanks, and in
late summer the meadows echo to the sound of grasshoppers and bush crickets.
