  • Here are the details of maps for Hanwell:

  • London Sheet 55.2 Hanwell Village 1894 - published 1994; intro by Maureen Gooding. ISBN.978-0-85054-702-3
  • London Sheet 55.4 Hanwell Village 1934 - published 2009; intro by Jonathan Oates. ISBN.978-1-84784-254-1

    We have published two versions of this map of Hanwell, showing how the area developed across the years. Each map covers the same area a mile by a mile and a half in size, still largely rural in 1894, stretching from Mount Pleasant and Dormers Wells Lane eastward to Hanwell Park and Cuckoo Lane; from Central London District School southward to Hanwell High Street. By 1934 the area is obviously more built up.

    The map covers Hanwell Village and the area north and west, with the eastern part of Southall around Burns Avenue and Dormers Wells. Features include Hanwell station, Hanwell Bridge, Broadway, Elthorne Heights, Brent Lodge Park, St Mary's church, Church Road, Mill Farm. The 1934 version includes the A-J entries from a contemporary trade directory.

    The map links up with London Sheets Sheet 56 Ealing to the east and 69 Hanwell & Norwood Green to the south; and with Middlesex Sheets 15.07 Greenford to the north and 15.10 Southall to the west.
