Harlington is a district of the London Borough of Hillingdon, on the northern perimeter of London Heathrow Airport. It is centred 13.6 miles (21.9 km) west of Charing Cross. The district adjoins Hayes to the north and shares a railway station with the larger district, which is its post town, on the Great Western Main Line.
The place-name Harlington is recorded in Anglo-Saxon as Hygereding tun: "Hygerǣd's people's farmstead".
The earliest surviving mention of Harlington appears to be in a 9th-century charter in which land at Botwell in Hayes was said to be bounded on the west by "Hygeredington" and "Lullinges" tree. The first of these must be Harlington; the second has not been identified. The boundary between Hayes and Harlington, which may thus have been defined by the date of this charter, was later marked by North Hyde Road and Dawley Road, but Dawley Road may not have followed the boundary before the 18th century.
Dawley Court, Goulds Green, was home to four generations of the landed De Salis family, who also owned land outside of the parish and most of whom have monuments in the churchyard. It was demolished in 1929. From 1930 to 1965 Harlington formed part of Hayes and Harlington Urban District. The urban district council's cemetery in Cherry Lane was opened in 1936. Harlington was in Middlesex, until the county was abolished in 1965.
