A Little Bit About Shepherd’s Bush
“Sheppards Bush Green” was first recorded in 1635 but the origins of the name Shepherds Bush are obscure. The name may have originated from the use of the common land here as a resting point for shepherds on their way to Smithfield Market in the City of London. There appears to have been an ancient custom of pruning a hawthorne bush to provide a shelter for shepherds protecting them from the elements as they watched their flocks. Alternatively the neighbourhood may simply be named after a local landowner.
Evidence of human habitation can be traced back to the Iron Age. Shepherd’s Bush enters the written record in the year 704 when it was bought by Waldhere, Bishop of London as a part of the “Fulanham” estate.
The 1908 Summer Olympics held in Britain meant the Great Stadium (later known as The White City Stadium) was constructed for the Olympics. Opened by King Edward VII on April 27, 1908, this immense technological marvel was the first Olympic Stadium built in the United Kingdom. Great Britain led the participating nations with 146 medals, including 56 Gold.
After the Olympics, the stadium continued to be used for athletics until 1914, and was later turned into a greyhound racing track, although it was also used for short periods by Queens Park Rangers football club. It hosted one match during the 1966 World Cup. The stadium continued to serve as a sporting venue until 1985 when it was demolished and replaced by the BBC White City Centre.
Situated in W12 Shepherds Bush has great transportation links to west, central London and south London. The opening of Westfield in 2008 provided much needed investment in the area making it a more desirable place to live. Schools include St Stephen’s CofE, Good Shepherd RC and Wendell Park are all judged ‘good’ by Ofsted.
