The Town Of Slough Situated
In Berkshire County, England by Simon Haughtone
town of Slough, Berkshire, lies neatly tucked in just off the M4 between
Heathrow Airport and Maidenhead, a borough of approximately 120,000 people.
Slough is pronounced to rhyme
with the word "now". That would pretty much sum up what the town is all
about too. This pretty town is keeping apace with modern development, tearing
down the old and heralding the new.
Already home to the Slough
Trading Estate (the first trading estate of its kind in England), there
is also a major structural development on the cards for Slough. A contemporary
"Heart of Slough" development project will spring up right in the center
of the town of Slough. This unique construction will encapsulate many public
buildings and spaces, mainly for the expansion of information and technology.
The "Heart of Slough" was given the go-ahead by council in 2009 and completion
is envisaged for some time around 2018. This complex project will no doubt
capture much European and International interest due to Slough's easily
reachable situation near a major airport, rail links and roadways.
town of Slough has come a long way from the days soon after the First World
War, when it was well known as a central point for the repair of army vehicles
and a respite for the war-worn weary escaping from London.
Today Slough stands proudly
with more or less 98 formally registered buildings, amongst these are churches,
banks, cinemas, schools, a railway station, hotels, pubs and restaurants.
The restaurants and pubs carry intriguing names such as "The King of Prussia"
and "The Ostrich", to name but two. It is anyone's guess how these names
Without a doubt, this modern
futuristic town called by the odd name of Slough and so strategically placed,
has a great future lying ahead. In summing up, it would be apt to coin
a modern phrase in keeping with the modernistic thinking of this town -
"Watch this space!"
