Over the years, Bracknell town has seen many many changes - many new buildings and institutions have been brought to light, and many have faded away.

One of which is Bracknell's former bus station, Just beside the train station in the town centre.

The site was fully and successfully demolished in December 2019, and 242 new apartments are set to be built on the former site.

Development of the town continued later in the 1960s, receiving a less than encouraging reaction at the time when it was declared the town was to double in size.

Residents did not want to be surrounded by large residential areas at the time, however the project went ahead and the planned population increased from 25,000 to 60,000.
