Paley Street is a hamlet in the civil parish of White Waltham in the English county of Berkshire. According to the Post Office the population at the 2011 Census was included in the civil parish of Bray. It is situated about 4 miles (6.4 km) south of Maidenhead and 6 miles (9.7 km) west of Windsor.

By the later medieval period, 'street' was often used to describe straggling villages in areas of late woodland clearance. Such places as Exlade Street in the Chilterns and Paley Street east of Reading are instances. For many years in the 1990s a successful horse racing yard was located at Cedars Farm.[1]

Amenities[edit]

Paley Street has two public houses; The Bridge House[2] and The Royal Oak, the latter being a Michelin starred[3] gastro pub owned by TV personality Michael Parkinson and run by his son Nick.[4]
