Most of the roads around W3 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in W3 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 W3 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 W3 flat moving.
A Little Bit About W3
The W postcode area is a group of postcode districts covering part of central and part of west London. The postal district of W3 covers Acton, West Acton, East Acton, North Acton, South Acton and Gunnersbury Park. The local authorities covering these areas are Ealing, Hounslow, Hammersmith and Fulham.
Towards the end of the 17th century several springs were found on the north-east side of Acton and for a time they became health spas. As a result of the local soft water Acton became famous for its laundries and at the end of the 19th century there were around 170 establishments in South Acton. These laundries would serve hotels and the rich in London’s West End, leading to the nickname “Soapsuds Island”.
Gunnersbury was acquired by Sir John Maynard, a lawyer and politician during the time of Cromwell. It was he who built Gunnersbury House, a Palladian mansion modelled on the Villa Badoer, and designed by John Webb, the pupil and son-in-law of Inigo Jones. A map of Ealing dated 1777, shows the house in the north-east corner of the park, facing a horseshoe-shaped lake.
In 1835, the merchant and financier Nathan Mayer Rothschild purchased the Large Mansion and park shortly before he died. In 1925, following the death of Nathan’s grandson Leopold de Rothschild, Leopold’s wife, Maria and son Lionel, sold the 200 acre Gunnersbury estate for £130,000. The large mansion is now Gunnersbury Park Museum (opening in 1929) and is a showcase for local history and archaeology, costume and fine art. Some memorabilia of the Rothschilds remain, including a number of their horse-drawn coaches.
