A Little Bit About Ravenscourt Park
The origins of Ravenscourt Park lie in the medieval manor and estate of Palingswick (or Paddenswick) Manor, located on the site and first recorded in the 12th century. The historic name still exists today in the name of Paddenswick Road, which runs along the northeast boundary of the park. Ravenscourt Park is an 8.3 hectare public park and garden located in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. It is one of the Borough’s flagship parks, having won a Green Flag Award.
By the 13th century the manor house was a mansion surrounded by a moat fed by the Stamford Brook, and the lake in the centre of the park today is a remnant of the original moat.
The manor house was rebuilt in 1650 and in 1747 it was sold to Thomas Corbett who named it Ravenscourt, probably derived from the raven in his coat of arms, which was itself a pun on his name as corbeau is French for raven.
In 1812 the Ravenscourt House and estate were bought by its final private owner, George Scott, a builder and philanthropist who developed nearby St Peter’s Square. Scott employed leading landscaper Humphry Repton to lay out the gardens of the estate, and encouraged the building of houses along its edges. According to a park plan from 1830, there were 78 houses within the park, and by 1845 this number had risen to 330.
Situated in W6, the area is surrounded by large beautiful Victorian houses and down Ravenscourt Avenue is a newly opened garden centre.
Three of the capital’s top private schools are in close by Hammersmith: St Paul’s Girls’ Godolphin and Latymer and Latymer. St Paul’s and its prep school Colet Court are just across the river in Barnes. Bute House is a popular girls’ prep school and Ravenscourt Park prep school is non-selective.
