Block Management Twyford
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Twyford.
History of Twyford
Twyford, Berkshire is 43 miles to the west of central London. The name Twyford is Anglo-Saxon in origin, and means double ford. Twyford had two fords over two branches of the River Loddon.
Twyford was always an important road for the wool merchants of Berkshire, who took their cloth from Reading to London and abroad. During the Middle Ages, hostelries were established, for travellers to stop, and refresh themselves and their horses. In the early 17th century, the main road was transformed into the "Great Road to Bristol". In 1718, the Maidenhead to Twyford part of the road was turnpiked, and Twyford was provided its own gate and toll house. The toll keeper collected payments for those who paid for the road's upkeep.
In 1839, the railway was opened in Twyford. Although the community had always been agricultural, the village centre encouraged other industries. Twyford Mill was built in 1800 as a silk factory, by the Billinge Brothers of Macclesfield. After 1845 it became a corn mill, and later made cattle cake. In the late 19th century, lace making and basket making were important trades, which helped the local economy.
