What’s been and what’s on in Yeading?
Yeading is an area in the west part of Greater London. It is located in the London Borough of Hillingdon. The area is a fairly rural one, despite being suburban. In fact it was still almost entirely rural up until the First World War, with some of the roads only navigable by foot. The war meant that proper roads were built, but even after World War I, the main square had no gas or electricity. People used open fires and tanks of gas to cook and live by. With the area remaining fairly quiet, Yeading is now a nice place to visit for exactly that tranquillity. The region was developed with some prefab housing estates after the Second World War, which made it a more residential area, with links to London by road and bus. The Grand Union canal runs close by the area, providing the historical brick makers of Yeading with a way to transport their wares. Nowadays, however, the Quayside has a range of nice cafes, restaurants and shops, forming a sort of a small marina.
