Heath Row was a small hamlet in the former county of Middlesex, on the outskirts of London, England that was obliterated for construction of the London Heathrow Airport in 1945. The hamlet was situated a mile and a half east from Longford. This may be where the airport derives its name. The hamlet has previously had the names Hithero, Hetherow, Hetherowfeyld and Hitherowe.
