Berkeley is a small town and parish in Gloucestershire, England. It lies in the Vale of Berkeley between the east bank of the River Severn and the M5 motorway. It is perhaps best known as the location of Berkeley Castle, a medieval fortress witness to many of the significant developments in British history, most notably where the imprisoned Edward II was murdered and as the birthplace and home of Edward Jenner, the inventor of innoculation.
