Popeswood is a village in Berkshire, England, near Bracknell. The village is within the civil parish of Binfield approximately 1.5 miles (2.4 km) west of Bracknell. The main part of Popeswood lies north of the B3408 west of Temple Park and south of Binfield village, with a smaller section south of the B3408 between Amen Corner and Farley Wood.[1]

It is named after the poet Alexander Pope who lived in Popes Manor, then called Whitehill House, between 1700 and 1715.[2] More information on Pope's time in the area can be found in the Binfield article. Nearby Pope's Meadow is a countryside park that offers recreational facilities with open grassland, ponds, copse and veteran oak trees.[3]

Newbold College, a Seventh-day Adventist college, is located within Popeswood. Nearby are St. Mark's Church and The Roebuck public house.
