The town of Hanwell is located between Southall and Ealing. There are many speculations as to where the name “Hanwell” originated from, some of which include environmental landscapes, boundary lines, cockerel, etc. For example, near Hanwell there was a spring and a large stone, weighing in at a ton; Anglo-Saxons referred to a boundary stone using the word ‘Han’, hence the name “han-well”.
Hanwell has many buildings steeped in history. The inns and pubs of Hanwell are an important factor in Hanwell’s development. There was a lot of profit made due to a toll being introduced between Uxbridge and Tyburn in 1714. This money was used to build a metal road surface, and this encouraged the rapid growth of Hanwell, and this also increased traffic going through the town. Many inns and pubs were built to accommodate the large amounts of travellers going through the town. Some of these include the Duke of Wellington, Duke of York, the Kings Arms, the Viaduct, and the Spencer Arms. Most of these still stand, but some were demolished or turned into retail stores.
The town also has a few hospitals which have 100 years or so of history. The St. Bernard’s hospital was once an asylum, which was opened in 1831 and renamed to St. Bernard’s in 1937. Nowadays, half of the original asylum has been turned into flats.
