Place in Berkshire

Chavey Down was the northernmost section of the little known South Berkshire Moors that stretched from Sandhurst to Bracknell and Ascot. Its most interesting feature was its windmill which was located near to the junction of Longhill and Priory Roads and Locks Ride, on the land of what is now known as Chavey Down Farm. The area was wild heathland until 1813, when George III enclosed as much common land as he could obtain. Chavey Down was then sold off to the Sewell family.
