A Little Bit About Dollis Hill
Dollis Hill consists of the streets surrounding Gladstone Park, formerly the estate belonging to Dollis Hill House. The Dollis Hill Estate was formed in the early 19th century, when the Finch family bought up a number of farms in the area to form a single estate. Dollis Hill House itself was built in the 1820s.
In World War I the tank design team responsible for the new Anglo-American or Liberty tank, Mark VIII was located here. The code-breaking Colossus computer, used at Bletchley Park during the Second World War, was built at the Post Office Research Station in Dollis Hill by a team led by Tommy Flowers. The station was relocated to Martlesham Heath at the end of the 1970s. The Post Office Research Station building has now been converted into 62 flats and is now known as ‘Chartwell Court’, with an access road called ‘Flowers Close’.
The Alternative War Rooms code-named Paddock is located at the Post Office Research Station.
William Ewart Gladstone, the UK Prime Minister, was a frequent visitor to Dollis Hill House in the late 19th century. The year after his death, 1899, Willesden Council acquired much of the Dollis Hill Estate for use as a public park, which was named Gladstone Park. The fictional Dollis Hill Football Club features occasionally in the British satirical magazine Private Eye as arch-rivals to Neasden Football Club, with on at least one occasion the fictional Dollis Hill South council ward used in the irregular Those Election Results In Full mock section.
