Yiewsley

Yiewsley is a place in the London Borough of Hillingdon to the north of West Drayton. Its name derives from the Anglo-Saxon Wifeleslēah: "Wifel's woodland clearing". Yiewsley was a chapelry in the ancient parish of Middlesex; the population was recorded as 11,767 by the Office for National Statistics. Yiewsley is not mentioned in the Domesday Book; the place-name derives from the Anglo-Saxon Wifeleslēah: "Wifel's woodland clearing". There is little recorded about Yiewsley until the late 18th century, when the Grand Junction Canal was cut. A branch of the canal known as Otter Dock was cut between Yiewsley and West Drayton in the years 1876–1879 in order to service Yiewsley's brickworks. Brick-making and agriculture were the main industries in Yiewsley during the late 18th and 19th centuries, the expansion of the brickworks resulted in a large growth in population. Five million bricks moulded and fired in the Hillingdon Brickfields every year were transported by canal to a yard near South Wharf Basin, Paddington.

The last brick-field closed in 1935 following strikes and the Great Depression, around this time Otter Dock was filled in. The arrival of the Great Western Railway and the building of West Drayton railway station in 1838 resulted in new houses being built and a sharp increase in both population and trade. A branch line to Uxbridge was completed in 1856; this ran until closed as part of the Beeching plan in 1964. As the population grew, a new church, St Matthew's, was dedicated on 6 July 1859, enlarged in 1898. Yiewsley remained a parish of Hillingdon until 1896; the nearest places to Yiewsley are Hayes, Cowley, Iver and West Drayton. The Grand Union Canal flows by Yiewsley, to the west are several lakes including Farlows Lake. Southlands Arts Centre in nearby West Drayton promotes local creativity.
