Some interesting facts about Uxbridge, Middlesex

The name is derived from "Wixan's Bridge" which was likely to have been near the bottom of Oxford Road where the "Swan and Bottle" now stands. The Wixan were a 7th-century Saxon tribe from Lincolnshire who also began to settle in what became Middlesex.

Anglo-Saxons began to settle and farm in the area of Uxbridge in the 5th century, clearing the dense woodland and remaining there for around 500 years.

Uxbridge became part of the Elthorne Hundred with other villages in the area.

Uxbridge later appears in records from 1107 as "Woxbrigge".

The covered market was built in 1788, but the previous building was about twice as big, creating big problems for traffic. In the early 19th century, Uxbridge had an unsavoury reputation. The jurist William Arabin said of its residents "They will steal the very teeth out of your mouth as you walk through the streets. I know it from experience". For about 200 years most of London's flour was produced in the Uxbridge area. There were also breweries, the last was called Harman's and was based in the High Street and extended up George Street. It was still in operation up until the early sixties. The ANITA calculator, the world's first desktop electronic calculator, was developed and manufactured by the Bell Punch Company at its site on "The Island", off Rockingham Road.

The Grand Junction Canal opened in 1794 linking Uxbridge with Birmingham. By 1800, Uxbridge had become one of the most important market towns in Middlesex, helped by its status as the first stopping point for stagecoaches travelling from London to Oxford. The development of Uxbridge declined after the opening of the Great Western Railway through West Drayton in 1838. A branch line to Uxbridge was later built in 1904.

The Market Square shopping precinct in the town centre was built in the late 1970s, though the lack of shelter meant it became unpopular and did not attract the levels of custom hoped for. Many buildings along the High Street and Windsor Street had been demolished to make way for the new precinct. It was eventually sold to the Prudential Assurance Company and was redeveloped with a roof to become the Pavilions Shopping Centre. The new roof was built during the early 1980s and as part of the redevelopment, The Peacock public house in one of the two main squares was demolished and replaced with a cafe named The Chequers which remains.

In 2001 The Chimes shopping centre was built beside Uxbridge station, using many of the existing buildings in the High Street as well as new structures. The centre was originally to be named the St. George's Centre in plans dating back to the early 1990s, though this name was eventually taken by another shopping centre in Harrow on the Hill. Instead The Chimes was said to refer to the sound of the bells from the nearby market house on the High Street. An Odeon cinema opened as a major part of the centre, with the smaller cinema at the opposite end of the High Street closing.

Archaeologists found Bronze Age remains (before 700 BC) and medieval remains when the new shopping mall The Chimes was being built. Two miles away at Denham, Upper Paleolithic remains have been found. Uxbridge is not mentioned in the Domesday Book of the 11th century, but a hundred years later the existing church, St Margaret's, was built.

The Parliamentary Army garrisoned the town upon the outbreak of the English Civil War in 1642 and later established their headquarters there in 1647. Charles I met with representatives of Parliament at the Crown Inn in Uxbridge in 1645, though negotiations for the end of hostilities were unsuccessful due in part to the king's stubbornness.

On 31 August 1935 the open air swimming pool Uxbridge Lido was opened in the "Moderne" or Art Deco style. Before the opening of the pool, many residents swam in a section of the Frays River near Harefield Road, and the Colne. The pool, pavilion building, entrance building and both fountains were granted Grade II listed status in 1998. Despite the listing and the pool becoming closed to the public, the buildings were subjected to heavy vandalism. The Lido has since been refurbished and was incorporated into the new Hillingdon Sports and Leisure Complex which opened in 2010.

During the Second World War, Uxbridge adopted the Royal Navy destroyer HMS Intrepid in 1942 during the Second World War to help towards the ship's costs. Intrepid was later lost in 1943 to enemy action. The town and surrounding areas suffered bombing by the Luftwaffe. V1 flying bombs fell on the town between June 1944 and March 1945. The first recorded bombing using a V1 was on 22 June 1944 at 07:00, when the bomb passed over the top of a bus and hit four houses nearby. Seven people were killed and 25 injured, leaving 46 houses in the area uninhabitable.

Brunel University opened in 1966 on the land formerly occupied by the Lowe and Shawyer's plant nursery.

Uxbridge originally formed a chapelry within the parish of Hillingdon. It was split out as a separate civil parish in 1866, and became part of the Uxbridge Urban District in 1894 under the Local Government Act 1894. In 1955 the urban district council successfully petitioned for a charter of incorporation and became a municipal borough. This remained until 1965, when the borough was incorporated into the new London Borough of Hillingdon.
