Question Why do Heathrow aircraft go over my house?

I live in Bromley SE London and I'm wondering, why do the heathrow-bound aircraft coming from the west, fly in a large U shape over my house?? I'm roughly 25 miles east of the airport itself, and it seems to me to be a bit of a large and slightly unnecessary detour for the aircraft to make?

If anyone could give me any info on this, it would be much appreciated

Thanks
