Most of the roads around NW8 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in NW8 a parking suspension is a necessity. The suspension has to be booked up to 14 working days in advance of the required date. These are booked with your local council online. For smaller NW8 removals, using vans, we can load and unload for short periods on single yellow lines. Otherwise a dispensation would need to be booked, if we are packing and NW8 flat moving.
A Little Bit About NW8
The NW postcode district was originally created as part of the London Postal District in 1856. The postal district of NW8 covers St John’s Wood and parts of Primrose Hill. The local authorities covering these areas are Westminster and Camden.
St. John’s Wood was once part of the Great Forest of Middlesex. The name derives from its mediaeval owners, the Knights of the Order of St John of Jerusalem (Knights Hospitallers), an Augustinian order, which took over the land from the Knights Templar in 1323. After the Reformation and the Dissolution of monastic orders, St John’s Wood became Crown land, and Henry VIII established Royal Hunting Grounds in what became known as Marylebone Park, to the north of which lay St John’s Wood.
In 1678 Primrose Hill was the scene of the mysterious murder of Edmund Berry Godfrey. It briefly achieved notoriety as three Catholic men by the names of Green, Berry and Hill were executed for killing Godfrey, who suspected the trio of plotting to kill King Charles II. Godfrey’s body was found lying in a ditch, impaled on his own sword and with signs of strangulation on his neck.
