History

Boston Manor Park surrounds the old manor house of 1623, which remained in private ownership until 1924 when it was purchased by Brentford UDC. Members of the royal family are known to have visited Boston House, which had a number of illustrious owners. The estate had fine gardens, that in 1918 included a walled garden, glasshouses, a temperate house and vinery and a 200 yard long herbaceous border. The original grounds extended from the Thames in the south to the railway line in the north and the lake appears on maps at the end of the 18th century.
