Boston Manor House
Boston Manor House is a Jacobean manor that was originally built for Lady Mary Reade and completed in 1623. Lady Mary Reade was a young widow who subsequently married Sir Edward Spencer of Althorp, Northamptonshire, who was an ancestor of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Sir Edward and Lady Mary were still the owners of Boston Manor in 1642, when the Civil War Battle of Brentford took place nearby.

The house was later purchased for 5,136 by James Clitherow, a City merchant, and then extended in 1670. It remained the home of seven generations of the Clitherow family during the next two-and-a-half centuries, until it became the property of the local Council in 1924.

The house was damaged during the Second World War and needed extensive restoration before it was reopened in 1963. Its ownership has now passed down to the London Borough of Hounslow, and it is open to the public on weekend afternoons between April and October. It is a Grade I Listed Building.
