It was founded sometime before 1066, and the land was part of an estate owned by Harold Godwinson. Settlements, mainly churches, began in the 11th Century.
Today, Aldermaston is known for its regal manor house, as a wedding location, for its rural beauty, small-game hunting, frequent flooding, and as the location of the Atomic Weapons Establishment, which acquires and destroys nuclear materials.
