Located at 72 Buckingham Avenue, the newly refurbished unit has been offered to the Museum on a rent-free basis.

The new space at the heart of the Trading Estate will enable Slough Museum Trust to continue developing imaginative, inclusive displays and interacting with local people to collect stories that reflect Slough as a place of pioneers and innovators. Slough Museum Trust is home to a unique collection of more than 6,000 objects and 5,000 photographs, which chronicle the fascinating history of Slough.

James Craddock, Managing Director, Thames Valley at SEGRO, said:

“The celebration of our centenary year in 2020 reinforced the importance of Slough as the birthplace of SEGRO and our pivotal role as custodians of the Trading Estate.

“The Trading Estate has evolved immeasurably over its 100-year history, from a military vehicle depot to a vibrant, diverse business community. We are proud of Slough heritage and are pleased to host the Slough Museum Trust on the Trading Estate, enabling it to continue to tell the fascinating story of the town to future generations.”

SEGRO was founded in 1920. Known as the Slough Trading Company, it owned and managed the 243-hectare site which was used originally as a First World War vehicle repair depot. Under the company’s ownership, the Slough Trading Estate has become a vibrant business community home to over 400 businesses of all shapes and sizes, including Mars, Virgin Media and O2.

The support for Slough Museum Trust aligns with the company’s Responsible SEGRO commitment to invest in local communities and environments.

 

Notes to editors:

Slough Museum Trust was established in 1982 by a group of local people who wanted to create a museum to share knowledge about local and general history, topography and archaeology of Slough and its surrounding districts.
