This fully illustrated talk will look at the history of the Heathrow area from prehistoric times, when huge earthworks dominated the landscape, through to the birth of the Ordnance Survey. Learn about the site’s early use for testing aircraft, and how it eventually became the world’s busiest international airport. The story is brought up to date with the continuing arguments about airport expansion.
