Whitton History – Ancient border Whitton brook stars in new book


As a keen historian I am always excited about the news that a new book is being released documenting Whitton’s rich and fascinating history. Ed Harris, our very own local historian, has written an enticing book detailing the ancient boundary of Whitton, Twickenham, St Margarets and Hounslow Borough and encourages us all to walk along the brook from the site of the Duke of Argyll’s former estate at Whitton Park to Moor Mead. A chance to relive our own local history since the time of the Domesday Book.

Ed said: He said: “I do what I can to uplift the profile of Whitton. There’s much to learn about the history of the area and Whitton Brook is a good example of this.”
The book can be purchased at the following shops: Twickenham Museum, Langton’s Bookshop in Twickenham, Regan’s Fish and Chip shop or Buck’s hairdressers.
