The Heathrow Airport

Heathrow Airport origins date from 1929 as a small airfield on land southeast of the hamlet of Heathrow from which the airport takes its name. At that time there were farms, market gardens and orchards there: there was a ''Heathrow Farm'' about where Terminal 1 is now, a ''Heathrow Hall'' and a ''Heathrow House''.This hamlet was largely along a country lane (Heathrow Road) which ran roughly along the east and south edges of the present central terminals area.
