Until the 18th century Perivale was called Little Greenford or Greenford Parva.

Perivale formed part of Greenford Urban District from 1894 to 1926, and was then absorbed by the Municipal Borough of Ealing. Before the residential building expansion of the 1930s, the fields of Perivale were used to grow hay for the working horses of Victorian London, a scene described in the ending of John Betjeman’s poem ’Return to Ealing’: "...And a gentle gale from Perivale/blows up the hayfield scent."

Although now mainly residential, there are some office blocks and parades of shops. Perivale has two golf courses: Ealing Golf Club and Perivale Golf Course. The BBC Archives are in Perivale.

Perivale is one of the settings of Anthony Trollope’s novel The Belton Estate (1865).

The Great Western Railway opened "Perivale Halt" in 1904 but it was closed when the current London Underground station was opened on 30 June 1947. It was designed in 1938 by Brian Lewis, later Chief Architect to the Great Western Railway, but completion was delayed by the Second World War. The finished building was modified by the architect Frederick Francis Charles Curtis. In July 2011 the station was one of 16 London Underground stations that were made a Grade II listed building.

My ancestors (Dady) lived in Myrtle Cottage, Fishers Lane in 1900 or so. Do you have any information? Was it associated with a manor house?

The Paul Welsh column: Star Wars and the long hot summer of 1976
Hello once again and I hope you are enjoying the best summer apparently since 1976, which I also remember well. Back then I seem to recall we even had a Minister for Drought! To be honest I am fading a bit along with my garden but after our long winter I just say carpe diem. You see how well educated we were half a century or more ago at a secondary modern school in Borehamwood.

Column: ’Richmond rental nightmare led to Property rating website’

We shortlisted a small flat located in East Sheen, on the top floor with stunning views of the London Eye and the Shard. We were looking forward to living in the vicinity of the beautiful Richmond Park. We viewed the flat on a sunny afternoon and fell in love with the place. We researched on the area, neighbouring schools, commuting options, parking scene, etc.; basically whatever we could find out. The flat was being painted when we went in. We were happy that we would be living in a clean home with a fresh feeling. Little did we know that actually black mould was being covered up!

The Underground Map

The Underground Map is a project which is creating a history website for the areas of London and surrounding counties lying inside the M25.

There are now over 23 000 articles on all variety of locations including amongst others, roads, houses, schools, pubs and palaces.

You can begin exploring by choosing a place from the dropdown list at the top left and then clicking Reset Location.

As maps are displayed, click on the markers to view location articles.

You can also view historical maps of London - use the Google Map control to change to a particular decade.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.

John Rocque Map of Wembley, Kingsbury, Willesden and Harlesden (1762)
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 Harrow in the northwest to Harlesden in the southeast.
