The Changing Face of Slough

Published in association with the Slough Museum

This new history of Slough gives a vivid insight into the dramatic changes that have taken place in the town over the last 100 years. The story is fully illustrated with over 250 photographs from the archive at the Slough Museum.

The authors describe the modern centre of the town, recalling the swift pace of development that has created the familiar shopping and business area of today. But they also pay special attention to the history of the surrounding districts, which are a vital part of the make up of the modern town. Sections are devoted to Britwell, Haymill, Farnham, Cippenham, Stoke, Baylis, Chalvey, Wexham/Lea, Central, Upton, Kedermister, Langley St Mary, Foxborough and Colnbrook/Poyle.

These fourteen wards have their own distinctive identities, and this book is the first account that has properly covered their history and acknowledged their importance in the development of the area.
