What is it like in Slough?


Herschel Park (known as Upton Park until 1949), named for astronomer William Herschel, is currently being relandscaped in a multimillion-pound effort to bring it back to its former Victorian era glory.[19] The park was featured in an episode of the documentary programme Who Do You Think You Are? focusing on the TV presenter Davina McCall.[20]

Named neighbourhoods include Brands Hill, Britwell, Huntercombe, Manor Park, Salt Hill, Upton Lea and Windsor Meadows. The urban area merges into the neighbouring parishes of Burnham, brief bits of Taplow near Cippenham, Farnham Royal and Stoke Poges which remain in the county of Buckinghamshire and Datchet which is also in Berkshire. Eton is narrowly buffered by green space from part of Slough and the two areas formerly formed the Eton birth, marriages and deaths registration district.

Originally recorded as Slo in 1196, the town was also known as Le Slowe, Slowe or Slow. The first references to Slough appeared in the mid-15th century. The name is thought to be derived from part of the parish called the Slow field, or slough (a mire or morass) because of the wet soil.

After the war, several further large housing developments arose to take large numbers of people migrating from war-damaged London.

An online poll revealed that local opinion was split, with 42% of people backing the bid to change the town’s name. Hamzah has put forward Upton as an alternative – the name of one of the oldest parts of the town.

Pratt also pointed out that changing the names of the town and the borough would be a “colossal expense” at a time of austerity. “We’d rather invest in infrastructure than in changing the name,” she said.

From the mid-17th century, stagecoaches began to pass through Slough and Salt Hill, which became locations for the second stage to change horses on the journey out from London. By 1838 and the opening of the Great Western Railway, Upton-cum-Chalvey's parish population had reached 1,502. In 1849, a branch line was completed from Slough railway station to Windsor and Eton Central railway station, opposite Windsor Castle, for the Queen's convenience.

Each week we present a round-up of photos taken by our staff photographers for the Maidenhead Advertiser, Slough Express and Windsor Express.

Most of the area that now makes up Slough was anciently part of Buckinghamshire. The town developed by the expansion and amalgamation of villages along the Great West Road. Over the years Slough has expanded greatly, incorporating a number of different villages. Original villages that are now suburbs of Slough include Chalvey, Cippenham, Colnbrook, Langley, Poyle, Upton, and Wexham.

Recent new offices include those of Nintendo, Black and Decker and Abbey business centres.[33] Dulux paints are still manufactured in Slough by AkzoNobel, which bought Imperial Chemical Industries in 2008. The registered office of Furniture Village lies in the town.[34] Sara Lee's headquarters for the United Kingdom are also in Slough.[citation needed]

Such is the effect of the town’s name, made famous – or infamous – by the former poet laureate Sir John Betjeman and the Ricky Gervais television comedy The Office. Now Slough is going through one of its periodic debates about whether to change its unloved name.
