SITE DETAILS

Tudor Court Hounslow

Summary

Hanworth was called 'Hanworde' in the Domesday Book in 1086 meaning a small village, and at that time held by Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel. It was described as 'a small Royal seat in which Henry VIII took great delight'. Tudor Court near Hanworth Park was formerly the location of Henry VII's hunting lodge, which burnt down in 1797. The stables survived the fire, probably c.1770, and were later converted into flats in 1924. In the garden are the remains of large Tudor walls and fireplaces, which were probably the royal kitchens.
