Hounslow Central

Hounslow Central. Hounslow was recorded as Honeslaw in the Domesday Book and is derived from the Old English personal name Hund and hlaw, 'a hill' - means 'the hill where Hund lived'. It has no connection with dogs (unlike Houndsditch) as the name may suggest. It was recorded as Hounslawe in 1252.

The station was opened as HESTON HOUNSLOW on 1 April 1886; second station opened 19 October 1912; renamed HOUNSLOW CENTRAL 1 December 1925.
