Welcome to the Isleworth Society Website

The Isleworth Society exists to promote the preservation and conservation of one of the oldest Thames riverside communities to be found in London. With its unique blend of history, buildings and community we believe Isleworth is worth treasuring and preserving for future generations.

With 300+ members we are an active voice in the community working with London Borough of Hounslow, developers and local people to do our best to ensure that the development of the area is sympathetic with its history. 

We value your opinion and ideas so either contact us via the Contact Us Page or if you have a point of view or an Isleworth memory share it with us and other site visitors via the Guest Book Page.

What does TIS do?
  • Work of the Committee

    The TIS Committee meets every six weeks to discuss matters of general interest and any changes/or improvements that might have been proposed in the area, with a view to protecting and enhancing Isleworth.

    The Planning Sub-Committee monitors planning application and takes action where necessary, by representations to the local council and/or developers, and attending relevant meetings and enquiries.

    Newsletters are distributed 2/3 times  a year to all members. These contain items of local interest, reports of events, achievements and forthcoming activities.

  • Community Projects

    Over the years community projects have been many and varied, including:-

    - Led restoration of 19thC Glossop Memorial, jointly funded by Heritage of London Trust, Hounslow’s Street Improvement project and from The Society’s own resources
