Hanworth House plans rejected

The future of one of Britain’s historic manor houses is again in question, amid concerns over plans for the West London site. Hanworth Park House in Hounslow was originally a hunting lodge for Henry the 8th, before being destroyed by fire. The replacement building was used as a hospital during the 1st World War and as an aviation centre – but has since fallen into disrepair. Plans to restore it by building housing on surrounding land to raise funds have been rejected by the local authority, leading to a campaign to save the site in 2019
