Heston War Memorial and St Leonard's Church tower
Heston War Memorial and St Leonard's Church tower
In Elizabethan times, Heston was rich farmland, famous for its wheat. In the 19th century it became a centre for brick making and it was said that much of London was built of Heston brown brick.

St Leonard's Church was rebuilt in 1856 but the tower dates from the 15th century. The tower can be seen beyond the war memorial which is on an island at the junction of Heston Road and New Heston Road.
