Where Not To Buy A House

Here's a map of the radar vectored flight paths for heathrow. Might help when house hunting, or negotiating price.

Cranford is probabily the worst place around heathrow for overhead aircraft noise.

The area is like the modern dark satanic mills, have you seen the M25 around there, it's now 12 lanes FFS! It makes Spaghetti Junction appear small and elegant.

I lived vertically below the flight path in Putney for 6 years. The use of the runways switches on a weekly basis, so sometimes it's relatively peaceful, and other times quite annoying. If you are outside when a big plane is passing over and running the jets to regain a tad of altitude you can hardly hear someone talk.

The end of Concorde was celebrated in our flat.

Helicopters (which follow the Thames to land at Battersea heliport) are more annoying than aeroplanes in the summer. Police helicopters are the most annoying of all, since they choose to chase crims with them most frequently on beautiful summer afternoons, with clear skies to the horizon (why might that be?).

Now we have moved about a mile south of the southerly flight path (Southfields) and it is no longer an issue. Local councils, particularly Wandsworth have been fighting the govt in the High Court over nightflights for ages, but show no signs of overcoming the govts support for the air industry.

Other issues are Terminal 5 increasing flights, proposed new runway at Harmondsworth, and changes to the runway alternation system (using both runways all the time).

For all these reasons I would strongly advise any purchaser to steer well clear of the flight paths.

Incidentally, I would go near a tube track either - there is a good chance they will be 24hr in a few years time - try sleeping with a tube rattling past your bedroom at 4am...

There is zero chance that the tube will ever be 24 hour. To run a tube network 24x7 you need three tunnels, so that you can take one out of action for maintenance and cleaning while continuing to run trains both ways in the other two. It would cost over £100 billion to add an extra tunnel to all of the tube lines, and it's not going to happen.
