Heston 1894

Heston 1894

Ref: MDX20.02a

This map shows Heston as a rural Middlesex village, surrounded by orchards or market gardens, and with open countryside to the west. A clutch of roads or lanes - Fern Lane, Norwood Green Road, Smoky Lane, Church Lane - have houses on them, and St Leonard's church, some pubs, Heston Hall, Heston Farm and a few other buildings form the village. To the south is the hamlet of Sutton. Cranford Lane meanders across the map. A large field in the NW corner of the map was acquired in 1928 for an airfield, and scheduled services started here in 1933 with flights to the Isle of Wight; Chamberlain flew from here to meet Hitler. However, the airport closed in 1947 as Heathrow was developed.

The map links up with Middlesex Sheets 15.14 Southall Green to the north, 20.03 Osterley Park to the east, 20.06 Hounslow Westto the south.
