The original borders of the parish stretched from the bend of the River Brent at Greenford and followed the river down to the River Thames.Its geography, before the draining of the marshes, formed a natural boundary between the different tribes of the south east of England. The only other Hanwell in Britain is a small parish in Oxfordshire on the boundary with Warwickshire.The origin of the name is uncertain; various suggestions have been put forward.Near to the old Rectory and close to Hanwell spring is a large stone of about a ton in weight.

Named after the Wharncliffe Viaduct, its original name was the "Coach and Horses".Further east still and back across on the north side of the Uxbridge Road at the junction of Hanwell Broadway is the "Duke of York"This became an important staging point for stagecoaches on their way between Oxford and London.Established in the 18th century, it has been subsequently rebuilt in the Tudorbethan style.On the east of the building itself is a very sheltered beer garden, so food and drink can be enjoyed inside or out.The Fox was the meeting place for the local fox hunt until the 1920s.
