    5 Quickfire Slough Facts

    1. Birthplace of…
      Ricky Gervais TV mockumentary The Office, was set in Slough Trading Estate. The estate is the exact same place that Gerry Anderson made the much-loved wobbly headed 60s TV show Thunderbirds.
    2. And Mars
      The chocolate, not the planet (that was born in space!). Mars Bars were first produced in Slough by the American chocolate mogul Forrest Mars. His company, Mars, went on to make Snickers (Marathon), Twix, Galaxy, Uncle Benn’s Rice and Pedigree Chum.
    3. And Zebra Crossings
      The Road Research Laboratory which was based in Slough set about creating a safe place to cross that would be visible in all weathers. The trials resulted in zebra crossing the very first of which lined a Slough road in 1951. Crossing spotters will be sad to hear the original crossing is no longer there, the entire road is actually no pedestrianised.
    4. And Wheelie Bins
      Back to Slough Trading Estate where in 1969 a health inspector noticed a moulding company had built wheeled bins to move waste through its factory. He instantly saw how the idea could help reduce back injuries amongst ‘binmen’. He gave his brilliant idea to his superiors who sat on it for over a decade before a new management team saw its potential. Wheelie bins were eventually rolled out across the nation in the 1980s.
    5. And The Beatles!
      Fair enough, ‘birthplace of The Beatles’ might be a bit much, but the Fab Four did kick off their first ever UK tour at Slough’s Adelphi Theatre in May 1963. And if it hadn’t been for Sough’s zebra crossings The Beatles most iconic photo would never have happened. Nice work Slough!

    Thank You Over’s

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.

    - Helen Williams – May 2021

    Prehistoric – Bronze Age

    Slough’s history actually begins, before history. Prehistoric finds have been discovered in gravel pits in the area. Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age and Roman artefacts have all been unearthed showing that what many consider to be a ‘new town’ is in actual fact as ‘old as the hills/pits’.

    17th Century

    Over's Removals

    Not a lot was recorded of early Slough, it certainly existed as a settlement in the Middle Ages and the name most likely refers to ‘slough’, a type of marshland. In the 13th century, Henry III built a royal palace in was is now the Cippenham suburb of the town, the site is now a scheduled ancient monument and still clearly visible with Cippenham Moat detailing exactly where it stood.

    18th Century

    Unlike many towns in the area, Slough was mostly left untouched by the English Civil War, no sieges, no battles, no occupying army. In the 1700’s stagecoaches began using Slough as a site for swapping horse teams along the route between London and the South West but the town wasn’t actually a stopping point for the passengers. However, as traffic grew, coaching inns did start to spring up along the road that now marks the centre of the town.

    19th Century

    When the railways arrived, Eton College, which already had its own station, objected most vehemently to Slough wanting a station and subsequently the town was overlooked. But the canny locals would line the tracks anyway, forcing trains to stop and the guards and drivers were quite happy to let the passengers on despite what Eton might have to say. And eventually Slough its station. Among the many to have clambered aboard the train at Slough was none other than Prince Albert and three years later in June 1840 Queen Victoria herself visited the town and declared its new train station open (take that Eton!).

    Over's Truck

    20th Century

    In 1918, vehicles coming back from the frontline of WWI were brought to Slough in one of the army’s first motor repair depots. Eventually the land was sold to Slough Trading Co and the proximity to the motorway, Heathrow and London made it an ideal spot for factories to spring up causing the loss of some green land and farms which later caused John Betjeman to write his famous poem (“Come friendly bombs and fall on Slough! It isn’t fit for humans now…”).
