Worried Slough residents fearing the destruction of the iconic Horlicks factory lettering that has dominated the landscape for so long need not fear say the developers.

Developers Berkeley have committed to restore the historic listed 1908 building as part of the conversion.

This week the company's head of property Katrina Croft explained that removing the red letters from the factory roof was necessary to prevent them being destroyed during the work.

"The historic letters will be carefully dismantled and safely stored until they can be displayed once more. It is Berkeley’s plan, once the internal factory transformation is complete, to feature the letters as part of an artistic display within the communal areas of the factory."
