A Little Bit About TW1
The TW postcode area has 20 postcode districts covering parts of south west London, north-west Surrey and a very small part of Berkshire. The postal district of TW1 covers Twickenham, St Margarets and Strawberry Hill. The local authorities covering these areas are Richmond upon Thames and Hounslow.
In Norman times Twickenham was part of the Manor of Isleworth – itself part of the Hundred of Hounslow (mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The town is bordered on the south-eastern side by the River Thames and Eel Pie Island — which is connected to the Twickenham embankment by a narrow footbridge, the first of which was erected in 1957. Twickenham is noted for its arts heritage and embraces the Royal Military School of Music at Kneller Hall (which is actually in Whitton) and St Mary’s University College- the oldest Roman Catholic University in the United Kingdom.
St Margarets takes its name from the former St Margaret’s House. It was the country house of Lord Cassilis, Marquis of Ailsa, and later belonged to the Earl of Kilmorey.
Their names can be found in local street names, including Kilmorey Gardens and Ailsa Road. Grand Victorian and Edwardian family homes sit on tree-lined streets, with those in the coveted Trust Grounds offering exclusive access to vast acres of secret communal gardens – complete with woodlands, tennis courts and a lake – all within a few minutes of the “village” shops and cafés.
The nineteenth-century development is named after “Strawberry Hill”, the fanciful Gothic Revival villa designed by author Horace Walpole between 1749 and 1776. It began as a small 17th century house “little more than a cottage”, with only 5 acres of land and ended up as a “little Gothic castle” in 46 acres.
The original owner had named the house “Chopped Straw Hall”, but Walpole wanted it to be called something more distinctive and after finding an old lease that described his land as “Strawberry Hill Shot”, he adopted this name. Walpole rebuilt the existing house in stages from 1749 to 1776 adding gothic features such as towers and battlements outside. To elaborate the decoration inside a “gloomth” was created to suit Walpole’s collection of antiquarian objects, contrasting with the “riant” (smiling) garden.
