History of West Drayton
West Drayton is a town in the London Borough of Hillingdon, England. It was part of the historic county of Middlesex until 1965. The town is situated 15.8 miles (25.4 km) west of Charing Cross and is one of the major metropolitan centres identified in the London Plan.
The early history of West Drayton is closely associated with the Watling Street Roman road which ran through the area from London to Chester. The first recorded mention of the town dates from the 12th century when it was known as 'Drayton-in-the-Clay', meaning 'drained farmland in a clay soil'. By the 13th century the town's name had changed to 'West Drayton' to distinguish it from other places called Drayton, such as Drayton-in-Hertfordshire and Drayton-Beauchamp.
West Drayton's location on the main road from London to Oxford and Bristol meant that it became a popular stopping-off point for travellers. In the 16th century a number of inns were established to cater for the needs of travellers. One of the most notable was the White Hart, which was frequented by Queen Elizabeth I and her courtiers. West Drayton also became known as a market town and developed a thriving market trade in.
New developments in West Drayton
There are a number of new developments taking place in West Drayton, which are set to further boost the town's appeal.
One of the most significant developments is the regeneration of the High Street. The High Street was previously dominated by independent shops and businesses, but in recent years many of these have closed down. The regeneration project is aimed at breathing new life into the High Street, with a focus on attracting new businesses and improving the appearance of the area.
Another major development is the construction of a new railway station. The new station, which opened in 2019, will be located on the Elizabeth line, providing direct services to London Heathrow Airport and central London.
Padcroft is situated in the up-and-coming suburb of West Drayton, located within the London Borough of Hillingdon. These stunning new apartments are less than a 5-minute walk from West Drayton station and within easy reach of local amenities. The area will benefit from vastly improved transport links on the completion of the West Drayton Crossrail station shortly. This will bring the West End and City of London within 22 minutes and 29 minutes journey time.
