  1. About Old Isleworth

    Isleworth's original area of settlement, alongside the Thames, is known as 'Old Isleworth'. It has a number of Georgian houses in Church Street, next to the parish church and facing the Thames. Much of Isleworth became orchards in the 18th century, and then market gardens in the 19th century, supplying the London markets. Lower Square and Church Street still have buildings dating from the 18th and early-19th centuries. A striking element of this period was the establishment in Isleworth of many mansions and large houses, principally for aristocrats and high achievers. This phenomenon arose owing mainly to the collection of royal and noble residences and ecclesiastical establishments that already existed nearby.
