Open House Festival 2024 – Isleworth

14 - 22 Sept 2024

Hounslow Heritage walk guides hope to see you all during their 30 anniversary year.

Open House Programme for September 2024:

Isleworth’s Abundant Almshouses: 

A tour covering the oldest set built 1664 and endowed by Sir Thomas Ingram, Chancellor of the Exchequer, a Royalist survivor. Victorian homes include 12 for retired brewery workers consolidating links with a nearby church of similar design; that of red diaper pattern brickwork houses 6 ladies; the smallest a 1880s survival accommodates 2 couples contrasting with a 1976 re-build by Manning Clamp & Partners and more.

Exploring Spring Grove Isleworth:

Although retaining its rural character until the early 20thC development was underway by the 1830s. Centred around Spring Grove House, home of Sir Joseph Banks, botanist and explorer, the 1850-60s vision was for a grand Victorian suburb its villas designed by John Taylor Jnr inclining to an Italian influence. Today’s wider variety includes a former 1890s college by John and a swathe of quirky arts and crafts semi-detached properties.

Meet at Forecourt, Isleworth Railway Station for both walks.
