Farnborough

For those interested, there’s information to be had:

Farnborough derives its name from from the Anglo-Saxon settlement of Ferneberga (Fern Hill) and is mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086). But for the coming of the army at nearby Aldershot, the arrival of the railways, and the beginning of flying, Farnborough would probably have remained an isolated heathland village, that is until the latter half of the 20th century when the population moved out of London suburbia and became commuters.

“But for the … arrival of the railways, and the beginning of flight…”. That’s a pretty big conditional. There are probably a lot of places whose development was seriously affected by railways and the advent of powered flight. But I understand where the good Mr. Parkins is coming from.
