History

The Promenade is a riverside walk from Eton Bridge toward Windsor Leisure Centre. The Promenade at Barry Avenue, Windsor, was first created in the early 1890s and has changed several times in the 1900s, reflecting the increase in the river's attraction as a leisure amenity rather than purely for commercial and travel purposes as had been the case in earlier centuries.

The Avenue was named after Sir Francis Tress Barry, MP for Windsor, 1890-1906.

A replica Hawker Hurricane aircraft went on display in memory of its designer, Sir Sydney Camm in April 2012 and officially unveiled on 20th July 2012. Further information on Sir Sydney Camm can be found on the Commemorative Society website.
