We're grassroots Heathrow residents proving that communities less dependent on oil can be more resilient, stronger and happier. We take direct action on climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy by transitioning to a post-oil, community-led future for the Heathrow villages.

Directions

By public transport from Central London: Travel to West Drayton in TfL zone 6 in 20 minutes by train from Paddington. From West Drayton take the 222 bus towards Hounslow and get off at the Harmondsworth Lane stop in Sipson Village. Grow Heathrow is a minutes walk away from the bus stop, continuing in the same direction. The entrance to our site is on Vineries Close, next to the Cooperative nursery, and can be found after turning left onto Sipson Lane.

Alternatively, travel on the Piccadilly Line to Hounslow West and then take the 222 toward Uxbridge and get off at Sipson Close. Grow Heathrow is a minutes walk away from the bus stop, continuing in the same direction. The entrance to our site is on Vineries Close, next to the Cooperative nursery, and can be found after turning right onto Sipson Lane.

By bike from West Drayton: A well-marked cycle path runs south from West Drayton, under the motorway, and through Sipson village to Heathrow Airport. Bikes can be taken on all trains between Paddington and West Drayton and they tend to be fine about people taking bikes on during peak hours. It’s possible to cycle between Hayes/West Drayton and central London in under 2 hours following the route of the Grand Union Canal.

By car: Please try to avoid fossil fuel transport; if you drive, try to fill up your car with many passengers. From the M4, leave at the exit for Heathrow Terminals 1,2 and 3, and follow signs for Sipson. The imposing Holiday Inn hotel makes a good landmark to aim for. Driving south into Sipson, turn left onto Sipson Lane after the King William pub, just before the Achari restaurant, and Grow Heathrow can be seen immediately on the left.

Hitchhiking: The ideal stop is junction 4 on the M4. You should see a Holiday Inn that is over ten stories high. We’re on the other side, off Sipson Road. Walk south along Sipson Road, past the Plough pub on your left and in a couple of minutes you’ll see the King William pub straight ahead. Turn left onto Sipson Lane ten metres after the King William pub, just before the Achari restaurant, and as you walk past the Church you’ll see Grow Heathrow’s gorgeous gate with lots of Transition banners to your left.

By aeroplane: Haha! If you’re thinking of coming or leaving by plane, we’re probably not the place you’re looking for.
