Castle Way, TW13

PLACE NAME

Directional, leading to Hanworth Castle, a royal Tudor hunting lodge where Elizabeth I spent part of her childhood and sometimes stayed during her reign. This is one of a cluster of local streets commemorating the castle, Seymour Gardens marking the heart of the original fortification and moat. Though this street predates the others, and had already been laid out, but not named, by the time the 1898 Ordnance Survey Map was published, continuing north via Elmwood Avenue to Lower Feltham. After burning down the castle was rebuilt on its present day site, the now derelict Hanworth Park House, in 1797. See also Elizabeth Way, Moat Side, Queens Avenue, Queens Way, Seymour Gardens, Shakespeare Way and Raleigh Way.
