Isleworth is a town located within the London Borough of Hounslow in West London. Isleworth’s original area of settlement, alongside the Thames, is known as “Old Isleworth”. The north-west corner of the town, bordering Osterley to the north and Lampton to the west, is known as “Spring Grove”.
Old Isleworth has Anglo Saxon roots, but did not adopt its modern name until the 18th century. Much of Isleworth became orchards in the 18th century, and then market gardens which supplied London in the 19th century. Lower Square and Church Street, which front onto the Thames, still have buildings dating from these periods.
“… a riverside settlement of ancient origin.”
