Our First Trip this year will be on  Wednesday April 18th –  Trip to Osterley Park
Osterley Park is a large park and one of the largest open spaces in London. There is a large mansion with the same name, but also known as Osterley Mansion. The park lies between Osterley, Isleworth, Heston, Hounslow, Norwood Green, Southall, Hanwell and Brentford, in the London Borough’s of Hounslow and Ealing. It is operated by the National Trust.

When the house was built it was surrounded by countryside and served as a country retreat for wealthy families. The park is one of the largest open spaces in West London, although the M4 motorway cuts across the middle of it.
