For centuries Uxbridge, whose origins lie in Saxon times, was a market town serving much of West Middlesex and South Buckinghamshire. At one time there were thirteen water mills in the area where corn was processed. Situated on the London - Oxford road, it was an important town in the stagecoach era. This collection of images old and new charts the history of the area, and reveals many hidden aspects of this urban sprawl. In the early twentieth century London sprawled out westward, and the town became an outer London suburb. In recent times, because of its closeness to Heathrow Airport and three motorways, it has become an office centre. These pages reveal how the town has been largely rebuilt in the last eighty years. Join Ken Pearce on this nostalgic visual journey back through time.
