The area is the purported site of the battle of Acleah, in 851 AD, between King Æthelwulf of Wessex and the Danes, resulting in a victory for Æthelwulf. It grew as a small village linking the route between Windsor and Reading, serving as a stop for packhorse traders.
There are a number of manor houses in the area, the largest being New Lodge, built in 1857 for Sylvain van de Weyer, a Belgian minister. Other notable houses include Kimber's Farm and Bishop's Farm.
