    6 Quirky Facts About Uxbridge

    1. Capo di Tutti Capi
      Ahh yes! Sleepy, leafy Uxbridge. Nothing to see here, no crime cartels or Sicilian crime lords. Perhaps that’s why Mafioso boss Domenico Rancadore made Uxbridge his home when he fled from Italy in 1995. “I’m gonna make Uxbridge an offer it can’t refuse!”
    2. Lost His Head!
      King Charles I met with his parliamentary opponents at a room in Place House Inn (now the Crown & Treaty) in 1645 in a bid to bring the English Civil War, which had dragged on for three years, to an end. Talks didn’t go well and four years later Charles met Parliamentarians again but this time lost his head. In the 1920s the oak panelling from the ‘Treaty Room’ was sold to a New York businessman who had it installed in his office in the Empire State Building. In 1953 he returned it to Her Majesty the Queen as a coronation a gift, who regifted it to the pub and it’s now back on the walls of the Treaty Room, where it belongs.
    3. Not Venice
      Uxbridge has been called “The Venice of London”. It only has one canal, so no, we don’t know how it got that moniker either?!? (so in fact, this isn’t really a fact, sorry).
    4. Flour Power
      For around 200 years, Uxbridge produced most of London’s flour. In the 19th century a new mill opened named the Kings Mill, which eventually started baking its own breads. Several million loaves later, Kingsmill are now one of the UK’s largest bakers.
    5. How Rude!
      William St Julien Arabin (1773 – 1841) was a lawyer, judge, Verderer of the Forest of Epping, Judge-Advocate-General of the Army who owned several large estates in Middlesex and Essex. He was also not a big fan of the people of Uxbridge and once said, “They will steal the very teeth out of your mouth as you walk through the streets. I know it from experience.” Bit harsh.
    6. Battle Of Britain
      RAF Uxbridge was home to No. 11 Group RAF who were responsible for the defence of Britain and the South East. It was also the operations room during the Battle of Britain and responsible for providing air support for D-Day and the evacuation of Dunkirk. It was here that Sir Winston Churchill first said, “Never in the history of mankind has so much been owed by so many to so few”, something he later, famously repeated in Parliament.
