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. Although we cannot be sure when Slough originated, it certainly developed as a result of the Old London Road (now the A4), which connected Bath to London. In those days the village was well known for its brick making. In 1442, for example, Henry VI ordered bricks to build Eton College. Slough of the 18th and 19th Century had quite a few large, attractive houses and became a popular place to live; close to Windsor Castle and Eton College.
Sir William Herschel (1738-1822), the famous astronomer who discovered Uranus in 1781 with a self-built telescope, lived in Observatory House on Windsor Road from 1786 until he died in 1822. He set up a 6-metre telescope in his garden and cut down all the trees to have a clear view of the sky. W.G. Nixey, the inventor of ‘blacklead’ (used to clean and polish kitchenware), bought the ‘Old Vicarage’ in 1856 and built Springfield House, which was also referred to as ‘Blacklead Castle’. It was later renamed Upton Towers and is now Elvian House (on Nixey Close). Richard Bentley, who lived at Upton Park and ‘The Mere’, published works of Charles Dickens and some other notable authors through the ‘Bentley’s’ firm. Richard’s father George built ‘The Mere’ in 1887.
The Victorian Era brought about a lot of new developments. The first Electric Magnetic Telegraph, for example, was installed in Slough in 1843. It was used for the announcement of a royal birth and for arresting a murderer! Gas was first used in 1848 to light business premises and in 1849 to light the main street in Slough. Electricity came to Slough in 1903 thanks to the Slough & Datchet Electric Supply Company Ltd. The Windsor Express, which was first published in 1812, covered some Slough news and advertising. Royal visits and political dinners were especially discussed. The Slough Observer, however, was Slough’s first own newspaper and was first published in 1883.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
