A Little Bit About Earls Court
Earls Court was once a rural area, covered with green fields and market gardens. The Saxon Thegn Edwin held the lordship of the area prior to the Norman Conquest.
By 1104 a church had been constructed. The earls held their manorial court where Old Manor Yard is now, just by the London Underground station. Earls Court Farm is visible on Greenwood’s map of London dated 1827.
The first stepped escalator in Britain was installed at Earl’s Court Station in 1911. Manufactured by the American company Otis of lift fame, it was such a novelty that people made special journeys to have a go on them. Unproven legend has it that a one-legged man was hired to ride on them repeatedly, thus demonstrating its safety.
The whole of Earls Court is peppered with some incredibly beautiful private gardens and squares, which are open up for one weekend in June as part of a capital-wide programme. The big attraction is Earls Court Exhibition Centre with everything from live concerts to large scale annual trade shows.
Following WWII a number of Polish immigrants settled in the Earls Court area leading to Earls Court Road being dubbed ‘The Danzig Corridor’. During the late 1960s a large transient population of Australia and New Zealand travellers began to use Earls Court as a UK hub and over time it gained the name ‘Kangaroo Valley’. Since the 1980s the area has become a very desirable residential area and is highly popular with persons from all parts of the world.
