....the name Binfield derives from Coarse Grass in a clearing or "feld" in Windsor Forest.

....John Constable spent his honeymoon at the Stag & Hounds Public House in 1816.

....The Stag & Hounds is said to be the centre of Windsor Forest. The building became an inn in 1727. William Cobbett (English popular journalist who played an important political role as a champion of traditional rural England against the changes wrought by the Industrial Revolution) described an excellent breakfast he had here on his way to Reading.

....during his stay at the Stag & Hounds, writer Terence Rattigan wrote 'The Deep Blue Sea'.

....Binfield Place was said to have been Anne Boleyn's Hunting Lodge. The inscribed Tudor Rose emblem can still be seen on the beams supporting the ceiling. Tradition has it that bad luck will befall the owner if a 17th century bas-relief of a lady's head is moved.

....the word Emmets (as in Emmets Park and Emmets nest) is the old English word for Ants!!

....there is a headless ghost who walks along the footpath leading from the Forest Road alongside the golfcourse heading down to Binfield Manor. Have you seen him?

....Binfield Football club has been in existence for about 106 years.

....Binfield only has one set of traffic lights in the whole village.
