I stumbled upon this book today: Some stray notes upon Slough and Upton written in 1892 by Richard Bentley, a local historian. I haven’t read much of it yet, but from the first few pages we learn that Slough “is a very healthy place” and has an “inspiriting air”. The latter a quote from the former prime minister Benjamin Disraeli :eek:.

It’s certainly interesting for anyone interested in the history of the area, and linking to it here will hopefully bring it to the attention of a wider audience.
