History of Slough

History of Slough

Slough is a large town in Berkshire , England the borough originally developed as a stopping-off point for coaches travelling between London and Bath. It remained as a small village until the mid-1800s and the coming of the railway - Slough quickly became a thriving town and a popular place to live, within easy reach of London and Windsor. 

In 1086 William the Conqueror's Domesday Book lists some of the landowners in 'Upton', but the first recorded mention of Slough was in 1196, when it was spelled 'Slo'. Most historians think that the name came from the slough or muddy land between Upton-cum-Chalvey and Eton.

When the railway from London to the west was built, Slough Station opened in 1840. By 1841 the population was twice the size it had been in 1831, but the population was still only 2405 people! By 1891 the population was 7,700. ... The population has now reached around 149,000 people.

The first existing record of the name Slough dates from 1196, when it was spelt 'Slo'. The name Slough most probably refers to the marshes around this area in former times, in Old English this was 'Sloh'. Many prehistoric sites and relics have been found around Slough, but little has been found within the Borough.

In the 21st century, Slough has seen major redevelopment of the town centre. Old buildings are being replaced with new offices and shopping complexes.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Slough

Yes I have been watching Slough develop over the past few years and really is one borough oozing with potential. Did you know that The Beatles one of the most legendary British bands, began their first British tour in Slough in 1963. Also the creation of the zebra crossing started in Slough, the Road Research Laboratory was set up in the Langley area of the town in 1946, and was tasked with creating a pedestrian crossing with road markings that were visible in all conditions.The "Slough Experiment" began, during which all kinds of ways of getting from one side of the road to the other were tested across the town, with laboratory boffins eventually settling on the zebra crossing.

The sad news for any road-crossing spotters out there is that the original, created in 1951, is no longer in existence as the area has since been pedestrianised.

Things you may not know...

Slough has the highest concentration of UK HQs of global companies outside London. Slough Trading Estate is the largest industrial estate in single private ownership in Europe with over 17,000 jobs in 400 businesses. Blackberry, McAfee, Burger King, DHL and Lego have head offices in the town.

Did you also know that the founder of the Mars Bar , Frank Mars gave his son the money to set up his own chcolate bussiness in 1932 in the Uk and the younger Mars ended up in slough where he came up with the very famous chcoolate and caramel filled treat. So the  confectionery empire was actually born in Berkshire!

The oldest building in the borough is the St Laurence's Church in Upton and it is  around 900 years old!  Parts of Upton Court (home to the Slough Observer newspaper now) were built in 1325, while St Mary's Church in Langley was probably built in the late 11th or early 12th century, though it has been re-built and enlarged several times.

Things to do in Slough...

There are many thngs to do in Slough, with family and friends or whether you just enjoy strolls through the numerous parks such as Black Park or Langley country park by yourself. You could visit the Absolutley Ice - Slough Ice Arena , Go - Ape , Go Jump n trampoline park  or maybe Bust Out 360 if escape rooms are more your thing , the borough has many fun activities and lesiure centres to occupy your time both indoor and outdoor activities . Additionally for thoose that are shopaholics you will be glad to know that there is more than one shopping centre in Slough , there is the Queensmere Observatory Shopping Centre and more.
