A Little Bit About NW6
The NW postcode district was originally created as part of the London Postal District in 1856. The postal district of NW6 covers Kilburn, Brondesbury, West Hampstead, Queen’s Park, South Hampstead and Swiss Cottage. The local authorities covering these areas are Brent, Camden and Westminster.
Kilburn’s main thoroughfare running northwest-southeast is Kilburn High Road, part of the modern A5 road which forms the boundary between the boroughs of Brent and Camden. The road dates back to pre-Roman times and is part of the Roman road known as Watling Street. The town of Kilburn has its origins in a 12th-century priory on the banks of the Kilburn Brook.
Kilburn High Road originated as an ancient trackway, part of a Celtic route between the settlements now known as Canterbury and St Albans. Under Roman rule, the route was paved.
Together with the Willesden part of Kilburn, Brondesbury used to belong to St.Paul’s Cathedral in the medieval times. Brondesbury means ‘Brand’s manor’. A rural area for much of its history, some houses were built on Willesden Lane in Brondesbury only in 1847. It was on a hill, which made it suitable for better quality housing. In 1860 larger villas were built in Brondesbury. Several of them served as hostels for Belgian refugees during the First World War.
West Hampstead is one of north London’s most popular and affluent suburbs and is characterised by handsome period architecture, a thriving local heart on West End Lane and fast links to the City. Until the 19th century, this was a quiet area known as West End but then came three railways in the mid 1850s and the suburb of West Hampstead was born.
The main focus of Queen’s Park is the park itself – a park with an area of 30 acres. In 1879 the Royal Agricultural Society chose Willesden as the site of its annual show. A 100-acre site was designated at Kilburn, and on 30 June the show was opened. Queen Victoria and the Prince of Wales attended to view a working dairy, agricultural machinery and a wide range of farm animals. The show ran for a week but in extremely bad weather. Although it attracted 185,000 visitors, it made a loss of £15,000.
The north-west London district of Swiss Cottage spreads out around a major road junction chiefly involving Finchley Road, Adelaide Road and Avenue Road. Here, a landmark building – Ye Olde Swiss Cottage pub – has been familiar to locals and passing motorists for many years. The Swiss Cottage was originally a farmhouse’s dairy built between 1803 and 1804 when the surrounding area was in countryside outside London. It then became a public house called The Swiss Tavern as the city limits expanded in the early 19th Century. The name possibly coming from a contemporary opera. In 1965, the original architecturally-looking English building was reconstructed in the style of an actual Swiss chalet or cottage.
