The regeneration project include the restoration of the site’s key iconic landmarks including the Clocktower, Chimney and the War Memorial, to their former glory.
The restoration of the chimney is now complete, and the milestone has been marked with the installation of a new light feature that illuminates the stack by night.
Cllr James Swindlehurst, Leader of Slough Borough Council, said: “I was delighted to join representatives of Berkeley for the formal 'flicking of the switch' to illuminate the chimney. The lighting scheme turns the chimney into a beacon, providing a welcome warm glow throughout these dark winter evenings.
"The scheme to light up the chimney at the Horlicks site helps restore the chimney as the beating heart of the development and its new central square”.

Ben Ivey, Sales & Marketing Director, Berkeley (Oxford & Chilterns) comments: “We’ve had lots of positive feedback from local residents praising our new scheme and the fact that we are restoring the town’s iconic landmarks to enable everyone to enjoy them for many years to come.
“We felt it was therefore fitting to formally mark the occasion to illuminate the chimney, so we were delighted James was able to join us.”
Horlicks Quarter, a vibrant new community, will feature a collection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, set amongst landscaped gardens featuring a central square at Clocktower Place and a nursery, for everyone in the local area to enjoy.
