Hammersmith and City Line

A station not named after the road it stands on

Latimer Road station opened on 16 December 1868 at a junction formed between two existing railway lines – the Hammersmith & City Railway and the West London Railway.

Unusually, Latimer Road and the station that bears its name are not geographically close, being approximately 500 metres apart and on opposite sides of the Westway Flyover (A40 road) – the road being to the north and the station to the south. Prior to the construction of the Westway and the elevated roundabout that joins it to the West Cross Route (A3220), Latimer Road ran further south and closer to the station. The construction of the elevated road required the demolition of the central section of Latimer Road and the truncated and isolated southern end of the road was renamed as part of Freston Road. Despite the renaming of the southern part of the road, the station retained its original name. The area around the station is usually known as 'Notting Dale'.

In July 2010 the station began to be refurbished. When the wall for the westbound platform was removed, contractors discovered an old bricked-up entrance to the station public house, currently known as The Garden. They also found underneath the platform a very old and possibly Mahogany staircase leading up to the pub entrance. Apart from all the years of dust and grime they also found, amongst other things, a bath, old gun parts and even a vat of acid.

Loosen Britain’s green belt. It is stunting our young people | Jonn Elledge
With demand for properties now urgent, protecting so much land is a luxury Britain can no longer affordWhere I grew up, on the Essex fringe of London, there’s a street that was never finished. The numbering of Goodwood Avenue, Hornchurch, begins at around 350 but before it reaches 200 the road just stops. Beyond, there’s nothing but marshy fields stretching out to the Thames, four miles away.This particular estate was begun in the 1930s when the capital was still expanding. But it was left unfinished after the second world war, when preventing sprawl was the order of the day. The creation of the metropolitan green belt fixed the boundaries of London as wherever the suburbs happened to stop. So Goodwood Avenue stops midway at an unconvincing simulacrum of countryside that’s hemmed in by homes on three sides. There are two tube stations within a mile, yet despite the housing shortage, there’s no building on this land. Not because it’s unsuitable; simply because nobody’s ever built there.’The simple, depressing truth is that most people who own homes in the suburbs don’t want those suburbs to expand’ Related: Green belt is more likely to be wasteland than a slice of countryside The good news is that we really don’t need much green belt land to fix this Continue reading...

The Underground Map

The Underground Map is a website dedicated to some of the more obscure pieces of London Town (as well as some of the more well-known places).

The Underground Map project is creating a decade-by-decade series of historical maps of the area which lies within London's M25 ring.

From the 1800s until the 1950s, you can see how London grew from a city which only reached as far as Park Lane into the post war megapolis we know today.

Find the streets of London by clicking STREETS above or explore the maps by clicking MAP.

John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers an area from Greenford in the northwest to Hammersmith in the southeast.
