Road, existing between 1913 and now
Print-friendly version of this page The Underground Map is a project which is creating street histories for the areas of London and surrounding counties lying inside the M25.
Fitzneal Street runs off of Old Oak Common
The street is part of the Wormholt and Old Oak Estates which were constructed in 1912-1928 and represented part of a movement towards higher standards in public housing.
The 54 acres required for the Old Oak Estate were purchased by the London County Council in 1905 from the Ecclesiastical Commissioners. The estate was constructed in two phases, west of the railway and East Acton Station in 1912-13 and the eastern half in 1920-3.
