Lampton is a small area located on the Great West Road in the Hounslow, between Hounslow and Heston. Its name derives from the Old English for 'lamb farm.'[1]

Lampton was traditionally the property of the Bulstrodes (lords of the manor of Hounslow) from the 18th century on; their plans to create grand housing along the Lampton Road in 1881 were unsuccessful, and the area remained a small, primarily-agricultural hamlet until the late 19th century.[1] The area became built-up as a result of the extension of what is now the Piccadilly Line to Hounslow.[1]

The area gives its name to Lampton School and Lampton Park.[1]
