History

Toponymy

The village's name comes from the Anglo-Saxon Sibbwines tūn = "Sibbwine's farmstead". Sipson village adjoins the famous "Bath Road", the modern A4, which linked London to the Roman city.

Local government

Historically, Sipson was in the county of Middlesex, which was abolished as a local government entity when Greater London was created in 1965.

Heathrow expansion

In 2009 the majority of the village was under threat of demolition due to the planned expansion of London Heathrow Airport, which would have created a third runway at the airport.[1][2] However, in March 2010 the English High Court of Justice ruled that the plans must be reconsidered on environmental grounds,[3] and it was announced in May 2010 that the third runway plan had been cancelled.[4]

Geography

Nearest places are Harmondsworth, Harlington, Yiewsley and Hayes.
