Acton’s name derives from the Old English words ac and tun, which combine to mean “oak farm”, hinting at the town’s history as a small rural village. It was only in the nineteenth century that Acton started to really grow, as the town’s soft water sources allowed industry to develop there. Now, it is known as an excellent springboard for travellers heading into Central London. Along with Harrow, the town has its name in more train stations than any other location in the UK, with seven – Acton Central, Acton Main Line, Acton Town, East Acton, North Acton, South Acton and West Acton – and will join the Crossrail network once it is completed. The town has recently experienced some major renovation, and now hosts several attractive new developments. Many of these bear the names of the industrialists who helped bring employment to Acton Vale: including Napier House on Bromyard Avenue, Bronnley Court on The Vale, and several of the buildings in Factory Quarter on Larden Road. Alongside these modern developments are charming period properties, including “Mock Tudor” flats on Queen’s Drive and the Grade-II listed cottages on East Churchfield Road known as the Goldsmiths’ Buildings.
