Cain’s Lane Mission Church was built by Sipson Baptist Church in 1901.

Sipson Baptist Church built the Cain’s Lane mission hall adjoining the road to cater for the residents of Heath Row. It was constructed out of corrugated iron - typical of the tin tabernacles prefered by non-conformist churches because of their low building cost.

It lay just to the north of Shrub End Farm belonging to the Wild family who had farmed locally for more than three hundred years.

Although there had been earlier churches at Heath Row, this was the only church in the hamlet.

It remained in use until 1944 when it was demolished to make way for the airport.

Harmondsworth (1939 - 1965)
I lived in a house (Lostwithiel) on the Bath Road opposite the junction with Tythe Barn Lane, now a hotel site. Initially, aircraft used one of the diagonal runways directly in line with our house. I attended Sipson Primary School opposite the Three Magpies and celebrated my 21st birthday at The Peggy Bedford in 1959.

The Beatles on a London rooftop
The Beatles’ rooftop concert took place on the rooftop of the Apple Corps building in London. It was their final public performance as a band and was unannounced, attracting a crowd of onlookers. The concert lasted for 42 minutes and included nine songs. The concert is remembered as a seminal moment in the history of rock music and remains one of the most famous rock performances of all time.

The Bombing of Nant Street WW2
My uncle with his young son and baby daughter were killed in the bombing of Nant Street in WW2. His wife had gone to be with her mother whilst the bombing of the area was taking place, and so survived. Cannot imagine how she felt when she returned to see her home flattened and to be told of the death of her husband and children.

Malcolm Davey at Raleigh House, Dolphin Square
My former partner, actor Malcolm Davey, lived at Raleigh House, Dolphin Square, for many years until his death. He was a wonderful human being and an even better friend. A somewhat underrated actor, but loved by many, including myself. I miss you terribly, Malcolm. Here’s to you and to History, our favourite subject.

Heathrow

Heathrow Airport itself began in 1944 - its underground station opened in 1977.

Heathrow Central station opened on 16 December 1977 as the final terminus of the Piccadilly line’s extension from Hounslow West to Heathrow Airport. The preceding station on the line - Hatton Cross - had opened as a temporary terminus in 1975.

At its opening, Heathrow Central station served as the terminus of what then became known as the Heathrow branch of the line. Previously the branch had been called the Hounslow branch. 1977 was the first time that an airport had been directly served by an underground railway system.

With the development of the airport’s Terminal 4, this station renamed Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3 on 6 October 1986. With the closure of Terminal 1, a new renaming occurred.

The 19th century “Plough and Harrow” public house, Heathrow. Heathrow Road was a little rural lane running through market gardens between the Bath Road and Perry Oaks. Halfway way along its length was the Plough and Harrow pub. In the 1930s it was run by a Mr Basham, an ex-policeman. It was demolished in 1944 as plans were drawn up for a larger airport to replace the existing London Airport at Croydon. This is possibly one of the most altered locations in the London area - you can experience the site of the pub by visiting WH Smith in the Arrivals area of Heathrow Terminal 2.
