Royal Oak is a station on the Hammersmith and City Line, between Westbourne Park and Paddington stations, and is the least used station on the Hammersmith and City line.

The station opened 30 October 1871 although the Metropolitan Railway extension to Hammersmith had opened in 1864.

It is close to the elevated Westway section of the A40 road. The station is named after a nearby public house, The Royal Oak (later The Railway Tap and now The Porchester). It is one of a number of Underground stations named after a local pub.

Royal Oak Portal is the Western tunnel entrance for the Crossrail scheme to link East and West London by main-line railway. The station itself is not part of the Crossrail scheme.

Paul Curno obituary
My friend and colleague Paul Curno, who has died aged 80, was an influential and respected figure in British social welfare. His career encompassed the inner cities, the settlement movement and grant-giving, the last at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.Born in Plymouth, Devon, to John, an interpreter, and his wife, Olga (nee O'Brien), a dental receptionist, he was raised by his grandmother, for whom he was sometimes a carer. He went to Kelly college (now Mount Kelly school) in Tavistock, which was followed by stints as a Franciscan novitiate at Cerne Abbas Friary, now Hilfield Friary, in Dorset, a youth worker in New York and a house father in a remand centre in Hammersmith, west London. He then took a two-year course at North London Polytechnic (now London Metropolitan University) to qualify as a social worker. 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.

The Underground Map works best if you log in using Facebook.
