Dedworth is the most westerly area of Windsor in the English county of Berkshire.


The name Dedworth is formed from the words 'Dydda', meaning a man's name and 'Worth', a Saxon word for enclosure.[1]

Dedworth was one of three Saxon villages (the other two being Clewer and Losfield) that Windsor expanded to encompass. Dedworth predates Windsor and is mentioned in the Domesday Book[1] as Dideorde.[2]

An irregular quadrangular moat in Wolf Lane may be all that remains of the manor house of Dedworth Maunsell.[1] The other manor in the area was Dedworth Loring, owned by the De Loring family from the time of Peter De Loring in the early 13th century.[1] It was possibly located to the north where a large medieval hearth has been uncovered in the aptly named Knight’s Close.[1]


Dedworth has a number of shops, including: The Cooperative, Boots Pharmacy, Tesco, Model Shop (Mantua Model UK Ltd) and many others.
