Hillingdon Council has declared the Estate to be a Conservation Area. Details of the change and its implications should have been received by all residents. The full ‘Conservation Area Appraisal’ document can be viewed by clicking: Conservation Area Appraisal.
A cutting from the Pinner & Rickmansworth Recorder of June 25th 1987. It reports the publication of “Eastcote, from Village to Suburb, A Short Social History 1900-1945” by Ron Edwards. Sadly, this fascinating little book is no longer in print. If we can get permission, we’ll try to reproduce it on this website.
This 1981 document has been added to the site. The quality is fairly poor but it is still fascinating. If anyone has a better quality copy, please let me know (email@example.com). The photo of the house was really poor, so I have replaced it with a better one. It would be useful if someone knowledgeable could check the tree list and update it where necessary.
If you are a newcomer to the Estate then a warm welcome. Please click here to read the welcome letter from the Committee.
Notes from the Webmaster::
Image Files & Download times
Please note that some images may take a while to download. This is because some of the the images are taken from original documents, and even third-generation copies, and I do not want to compromise the picture quality (especially for those wishing to print the documents) by reducing the sizes further. I will continue to look at enhancing the pages and content of the site over the coming months.
