Hillingdon House Hillingdon
Summary: Hillingdon House was the former manor house of West Hillingdon, an old settlement on the way to Uxbridge. The house was rebuilt in 1717 by the Duke of Schomberg but largely destroyed by a fire in 1844 and rebuilt by architect George Mair. It has been an RAF Officers' Mess since 1915 when the RAF bought the estate. There is a serpentine lake in the grounds, which still stretch down to the River Pinn, although the character has been eroded by RAF use.
