Details

A haunt of highwaymen but less well-known as the midpoint London and Windsor royal rendezvous, Hounslow Heath aided Magna Carta, the Civil War, The Glorious Revolution and much more. It was here that King James II trained the largest army ever assembled on British soil in peacetime, staged the first ever Royal Military Tattoo and built a hospital designed by Wren. Free of the parochialism that is history constrained by administrative boundaries comes an account of distinct constituencies sharing a space as rich as any in our national story.
