History

The village of Heston is north of Hounslow, and has been settled since Anglo-Saxon England. A charter of Henry II of England gives the name as Hestune, meaning "enclosed settlement", which is justified by its location in what was the Warren of Staines-upon-Thames, between the ancient Roman road to Bath, Somerset, and the Uxbridge Road to Oxford. Another suggested etymology is Anglo-Saxon language ''Hǣs-tūn'' = "brushwood farmstead".

Before 1229, Heston was part of the parish of Gistleworth (Isleworth) before being taken by Henry III of England, who subsequently granted it to the Earl of Cornwall. It covered until the late 19th century creation of Hounslow from outlying parts of two adjoining parishes, . The close association pre-dates the town of Hounslow, when that was simply Hounslow Priory, the two parishes had long been associated: the medieval manor of Isleworth covered all of that parish and this. After Henry III died in 1316, Heston was owned by the The Crown, and later by the wardens of St. Giles Hospital, until it was surrendered to Henry VIII of England during the Dissolution of the Monasteries. Elizabeth I of England granted Heston to Sir Thomas Gresham, and, after eating some bread made from locally grown wheat, insisted on a supply for her own personal use.


The separation from Isleworth in the 14th century gave the locals a sense of independence from the inhabitants and feudal system of Isleworth, with whom they frequently quarrelled. The practice of “beating the bounds” was practised annually when the inhabitants went in procession around the parish boundaries, to show locals the extent of their lands. A contemporary account of such a procession describes an occasion when the parishioners of Heston came across some from Isleworth, and the ensuing "quarrel" saw men from Heston throwing the others across a ditch.

A single board of health for the parishes mentioned was formed in 1875 and a very large civil parishes in England in 1927. The A4 road (England) was completed in 1925, forming the southern border with Hounslow and the farming and market garden land around the village was snapped up for industry and housing developments.

Heston Aerodrome

Heston Aerodrome was operational between 1929 and 1947. In September 1938, the British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, flew from Heston to Germany three times in two weeks for talks with Adolf Hitler, and he returned to Heston from the Munich Agreement with the paper referred to in his later "Peace for our time" speech from 10 Downing Street.Sherwood (1999)

Housing and industrial estates have been built on some of the area that was Heston Aerodrome, and the M4 motorway with its large service area (Heston services) cuts across the former aerodrome site east-west, but a substantial area to the north of the M4 is host to the Airlinks 18-hole golf course. Many of the roads in the area have aviation-related names: Alcock Road (Alcock and Brown), Brabazon Road (Bristol Brabazon), Bleriot Road (Louis Blériot), Cobham Road (Sir Alan Cobham), De Havilland Road (de Havilland), Norman Crescent (Nigel Norman), Phoenix Way (Heston Phoenix), Sopwith Road (Thomas Sopwith), Spitfire Way (Supermarine Spitfire), Whittle Road (Frank Whittle), and Wright Road (the Wright brothers). |population_ref = (, , wards )[http://neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk Key Statistics; Quick Statistics: Population Density] 2011 census Office for National Statistics |area_total_km2=7.51 |civil_parish=n/a | official_name = Heston | latitude = 51.4852 | longitude = -0.3788 | os_grid_reference = TQ1277 | post_town = HOUNSLOW | postcode_area = TW | postcode_district = TW5 | london_borough = Hounslow | constituency_westminster = Feltham and Heston (UK Parliament constituency)

Churches

St Leonard's Church (Church of England) dates from the 14th century, though there are records of a priest in Heston in the 7th century. The church tower survived the necessary rebuilding works in the 19th century, as did the lychgate. The grave of Private Frederick John White, who was flogged to death at Hounslow Barracks in 1846, can be found in the graveyard. The outcry at the manner of his death brought about a reduction in the maximum number of lashings that could be given as punishment, and eventually the banning of the practice altogether.

Naturalist Sir Joseph Banks (1743–1820) was laid to rest at St Leonard's Church.

Our Lady Queen of Apostles is the Catholic Church in the area. Built in the 20th century, it is smaller than St Leonard's, though has a larger congregation, and is popular among families who send their children to the local Rosary RC Junior School.
Notably, all the altar-servers from Our Lady Queen of Apostles are specially chosen by the parish priest from the Rosary RC Junior School.
As of 2006, with the replacement of the parish priest Father Michael Tuck, for the first time in the parish's history, females may be chosen to be altar-servers. |population_ref = (, , wards )[http://neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk Key Statistics; Quick Statistics: Population Density] 2011 census Office for National Statistics |area_total_km2=7.51 |civil_parish=n/a | official_name = Heston | latitude = 51.4852 | longitude = -0.3788 | os_grid_reference = TQ1277 | post_town = HOUNSLOW | postcode_area = TW | postcode_district = TW5 | london_borough = Hounslow | constituency_westminster = Feltham and Heston (UK Parliament constituency)

Transport

London Underground
At the south end of Vicarage Farm Road, south of the Great West Road is Hounslow West tube station, which is nearest to most homes in Heston. From the east border of Heston, including homes on Sutton Lane, the nearest underground station is Osterley tube station.

East–West roads
The A4 road (England), having left the historic A315 road (Great Britain) on the Chiswick–Brentford border, forms the southern border of Heston and then reaches Henlys Roundabout by Hounslow West from which two routes leave. A Boxing the compass route passes London Heathrow Airport London Heathrow Airport Terminal 1–London Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 and London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 as the ''Bath Road'' and a Boxing the compass route, the A30 road (Great Britain), passes London Heathrow Airport Terminal 4, bypasses Staines and reaches the M25 motorway; the remainder is for the most part a minor route to Land's End, Cornwall.

The M4 motorway is 0.5 miles north (1 km); its nearest junction is J3, accessed from Hyde Lane or Southall Lane, crossing over the M4 motorway into North Hyde and then turning left (west) to reach the A312 road (Great Britain), ''The Parkway'', north of the junction.

North–South roads
The north–south A312 road (Great Britain), ''The Parkway'', to the west of Heston leads south to Feltham and Hampton, London or north to Harrow, London passing Waggoners' Roundabout (Boxing the compass of Henlys Roundabout in Hounslow West), Hayes, Hillingdon, Yeading and Northolt.

Three minor roads converge on Heston from the A315 in parts of Hounslow, the A3063, A3005 and B363. The single road re-divides just north in Norwood Green into a northwest road to Southall (the A3005) and into the A4127 road (Great Britain) that passes by Hanwell, briefly using the A4020 road (Great Britain) west before bypassing Dormers Wells, passing Greenford to reach Sudbury, London, the town immediately to the west of Wembley and North Wembley.

For longer journeys north, the M4 then M25 provide the best routes. For longer journeys south, Hanworth Road in Hounslow leads to the A316 road (Great Britain) which becomes the M3 motorway (Great Britain).
