It lies immediately east of the town of Hounslow and west of the River Thames and its tributary the River Crane. Isleworth's original area of settlement, alongside the Thames, is known as 'Old Isleworth'. The north-west corner of the town, bordering on Osterley to the north and Lampton to the west, is known as 'Spring Grove'. Isleworth's former Thames frontage of approximately one mile, excluding that of the Syon Park estate, was reduced to little over half a mile in when a borough boundary realignment was effected in order to unite the district of St Margaret's middlesex within London Borough of Richmond map Thames.
As a result, most of Isleworth's riverside is that part overlooking the 8. Excavations around the eastern end of the Syon Park estate have unearthed evidence of a Romano-British settlement. Isleworth was a well-cultivated farming and isleworth settlement, more valuable than many of its neighbours, stretching from the Middlesex bank of the River Thames west to the centre of Hounslow including the land of later Hounslow Priory and as far as the borders of Southall in Hayes parish at the time at the time of the Norman Conquest in One of the later barons gave several manorial rents and privileges to London's Hospital of St Giles.
He also gave the church and advowson to the Abbey of St Valeri, which stood at the mouth of the Somme in Picardy. Inwhen he took control of England from his childhood regents, Henry III seized Isleworth and other property of the St Valeri family and gave the manor to his brother, Richard, 1st Earl of Cornwall.
He built a new moated manor house, which is described in the Black Book of the Exchequer — having a tiled roof, chimney, two bedchambers and an inner courtyard. Beyond the moat was an outer courtyard with a number of buildings for servants and supplies, and a short distance away was a watermill. The exact location of this house is not recorded, but a report of an area long ago known as 'Moated Place' puts the likely place between the Northumberland Arms and Twickenham Road, with the watermill being near Railshead, on the Map Crane not where the traditional Isleworth mill 'Kidd's Mill', because the stream middlesex is artificial and did not exist at that time.
The Abbey of St Valeri in Picardy held the livings benefices and revenues of several English parish church lands and, responding to growing disquiet over these foreign holdings, in it transferred those of Isleworth for a fee to William of Wykeham, who endowed them to Winchester Collegewhich he founded.
The Wardens and Scholars of Winchester College therefore became proprietors of productive rectory which had glebelands. Four years later he isleworth the Isleworth rectory and advowson to the Edward Seymour, 1st Duke of Somersetbut got them back again when the Duke was executed in In Henry V granted nuns from the Swedish Bridgettine order land on the bank of the Thames, in Twickenham parish opposite his new Sheen Palacewhere they built their first house Syon Monastery.

This is the site of the present Syon House .

Lower Square and Church Street still have buildings dating from the 18th and early 19th centuries. A striking element of this period was the establishment in Isleworth of many mansions and isleworth houses, principally for aristocrats and high achievers. This phenomenon arose owing mainly to the collection of royal and noble residences and ecclesiastical establishments that already existed nearby.
The subject is examined in depth in the "Notable houses" section. The first half of the 20th century for Isleworth generally was characterised by a very substantial amount of isleworth and white-collar residential development throughout the town, at the expense of numerous market gardens. This period also included the building of several new factories and offices, mostly towards the north-east, up to the town's eastern boundary with New Brentford.
This rapid spread of building transformed the nature of Isleworth's layout in the space of just fifty years, from an agrarian pattern to an urban one. Isleworth's former Thames frontage of approximately one mile, excluding that of the Syon estatemiddlesex is shared with Brentford, was reduced to 0. The boundaries are longstanding, subject to 20th western and southern circonscriptions: Isleworth is east of the town of Hounslow which has more retail and offices, in the borough of that name ; west of the River Thames ; north of its tributary and the northern confluence of the Crane before its southern channel ; and south of the crest by the M4 motorway separating the Brent and Crane catchments.

In it was upgraded to a county hospital, but in under the NHS 'County' was dropped from its title. It later became a teaching hospitaland added 'University' to its title in The hospital was rebuilt on the adjacent site.
This is a major acute hospital on the Twickenham Road, Isleworth, with beds, providing the full range of services expected of a general hospital.
It serves residents of both the London boroughs of Hounslow and Richmond. As a university hospital it is map with Imperial College London.
A programme of building, renovation and modernisation in recent years has resulted in the hospital offering modern facilities. Within the old union workhouse complex stood a school, facing Twickenham Road, called Percy House — Percy being the surname of the dukes of Northumberland. Owing to its gradual disuse as a school it was adapted to function as a military hospital during World War I of — From onwards it treated some 5, war-wounded isleworth, and ceased operation at the end of The building was demolished in For nearly a hundred years an isolation hospital existed on the south side of Mogden Lane, which runs west from Twickenham Road.

The principal road in Isleworth is the London Road Awhich broadly follows the route of one of the early roads the Romans constructed in Britannia, namely Tamesis Street, built across the wide heathlands en route to Silchester, from where other roads led to Bath, Winchester and Salisbury. As this road from the centre of London passes through Westminster it is called 'Piccadilly' and then 'Knightsbridge'. In former times it was part of the 'King's Highway' to Windsor.
A bigger road was completed innamed the Great West Road A 4moving in much the same direction and forming the notional northern boundary of Isleworth. A six-lane dual carriageway for middlesex of its length, with attendant cycle paths, it fulfilled the purpose of bypassing the bottlenecks of Brentford and Hounslow high streets to relieve the old road from London of traffic heading to and from Windsor and beyond.

Electric trams started running in Isleworth infrom a depot situated on the north side of London Road, near the border with Hounslow. In the depot was map to trolleybus operation. It was designed in a horseshoe shape with a travelator at the far end, which had a turntable added for the trolleybuses.
It had a capacity for 37 vehicles and only ever operated one service: the 57 tram route which, on middlesex, became the trolleybus route. In July the service was cut back to terminate at the "Bell" at the western end of Hounslow High Street. A special turning place half a mile along Staines Road, at its junction with Wellington Road, was built for the trolleybus. At different times there were ambitious plans to extend the tram lines westward to Staines-upon-Thames and even to Maidenheadbut these never came about and the modern replacement motor bus route traverses exactly the same roads between Hounslow Heath and Shepherd's Bush as the trams did over years ago with a short extension to White City.
When the figured in the final London trolleybus conversion of all, on 8 MayIsleworth Depot was closed and its staff were transferred to nearby Hounslow Bus Garage coded "AV".
The replacement motor bus service was provided by an extension of routewhich up to then had run between Egham and Hounslow. Until this time the had operated between Chertsey and Hounslow with single deck buses — a truly suburban route. Another trolleybus service serving Isleworth was theformerly the 67 tram, which passed through en route from Hampton Court to Hammersmith via Hampton HillFulwellTwickenhamBusch Corner, Brentford and Chiswick.
Upon its transfer to motor bus operation, as part of the final London trolleybus conversions, the route had its number changed from to Tram 67, trolleybus and motor bus were all operated from Fulwell bus garage.

Even without that short-lived extension the 37 was one of London's longest routes.
Later, for "short" journeys, this was changed to stands in Magdala Road and then in South Street, outside the Public Hall. In this historic route was curtailed to run between Peckham and Putney, and the section between Richmond and Hounslow via Isleworth became a new, more localised service numbered H Isleworth has only one rail service.
