Administrative/Biographical history:

In 1793 cavalry barracks were built on the heath in Heston north of the Staines Road. Accommodation for infantry was first provided in the 1870s. When the Isleworth and Heston part of the heath was inclosed in 1818, 268 acres south of the Staines Road were purchased by the government to be an exercise ground for the barracks. A chapel was opened at the Barracks in the 19th century.
