Ye Olde Isleworth

Isleworth – that usually make me think of scumminess. On Easter Monday, while looking for places to buy wallpaper with G, we took a wrong turn and ended up somewhere beautiful! Cars were parked by what looked like a seaside! It was really peaceful and calming, which was really strange as I hadn’t driven far. This is what it looked like:

I thought, where on earth were we?! It far too pretty, it couldn’t possible be … Isleworth?!?! Yes, and on checking out the 2 locals, it turns out the people were definately from Isleworth. I could not believe you could get more chavvy than Uxbridge and Hayes. Well you can here.

This is what the buildings look like on the outside, by the River Thames. And this is what was inside them:

Still I was intrigued, walking past a row of terraced housing on a narrow road with double yellow lines, I thought the owners had nowhere to park their cars. Except one had its own garage. Why was this one special? Then there was a photo in the local – it was actually a flour mill in the olden days.
