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.


By public transport from Central London: Travel to West Drayton in TfL zone 6 in 20 minutes by train from Paddington. From West Drayton station take the 222 bus towards Hounslow and get off at the Harmondsworth Lane stop, next to the King William pub. The stop before is The Plough and the stops afterwards are Sipson Close and Sipson Way. Grow Heathrow is 50 metres from the bus stop: continue in the same direction, take the next left into Sipson Lane, and left again passing the Church. You will see the banners on the gates to our site on Vineries Close, next to the Cooperative nursery.

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 station: after turning left out of the station, continue straight ahead on Station Road, which becomes Sipson Road, all the way. You go through a motorway underpass and through Sipson village, where you’ll see the King William pub on your right that we’re near to. 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.
