Yiewsley and West Drayton Urban District within Middlesex in 1961

Yiewsley and West Drayton was an urban district in Middlesex, England.

It was formed in 1911 from the parish of Yiewsley, formerly part of Uxbridge Rural District. This rural district was abolished in 1929, and Yiewsley was joined by the parish of West Drayton, resulting in a change of name for the district. The parish of Harmondsworth was added in 1930 from the disbanded Staines Rural District.

The urban district was abolished in 1965 by the London Government Act 1963, to form part of the London Borough of Hillingdon in Greater London.
