is a brochure that was released in the mid-1930's to sell the first
houses built upon the Estate by Comben & Wakelin. It makes for fond
reading - particularly if one has lived in Eastcote for some years! -
References to Eastcote as a 'Health Resort' might be stretching things a
bit now - and probably even then! However, Eastcote was an
under-populated area at that time and in the earlier part of the 20th
century London-dwellers did indeed travel out to the Halt that has
become Eastcote Station, to spend time picnicking at the Cavendish
Pavilion and grounds and to enjoy the surrounding countryside.
There are plenty of books available that
give more history of Eastcote and its constituent parts. As I get
time I will add a bibliography of local history and other books
pertinent to the area.

being offered for sale at the time that the Estate was being created.
