The new series of walks by Hounslow Heritage Guides continues this Sunday (10 July) with a Brentford Road, Rail and Canal walk.

This circular walk explores Brentford's transport links, from Roman times to the present day. To join the walk be at the junction of Brentford High Street and Half Acre junction at 2.30pm.

The annual local history walks hosted by Hounslow Heritage Guides restarted on Jubilee Weekend with a circular walk on Hounslow Heath. This walk explored the site of major army camps for over 500 years as well as gunpowder mills, the first civil airport and a major haunt of highwaymen.

On 5 June there was a linear walk exploring connections of Royalty with Isleworth including Henry VIII’s coffin passing through and the launch of Gloriana presented to the Queen for her Golden Jubilee.

The normal programme of walks will now continue. From June to October there will be walks on the first Sunday of each month in Isleworth, in Brentford on the second Sunday and in Chiswick on the third.

All start at 2.30pm and cost £3 (children free). There’s no need to book – pay the Guide on the day.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
