The History of Acton
(Acton, W3, W4 London Borough of Ealing, London)
Acton is a large area within the London Borough of Ealing in west London, England, 6.1 miles (10 km) west of Charing Cross.
At the 2011 census, its four wards, East Acton, Acton Central, South Acton and Southfield, had a population of 62,480, a ten-year increase of 8,791 people.
North Acton, West Acton, East Acton, South Acton, Acton Green, Acton Town, Acton Vale and Acton Central are all parts of Acton.
Acton means "oak farm" or "farm by oak trees", and is derived from the Old English ac (oak) and tun (farm). Originally an ancient village, as London expanded,
Acton became absorbed into the city. Since 1965, Acton equates to the east of the London Borough of Ealing though some of East Acton is in the London Borough of
Hammersmith and Fulham and a small portion of South Acton is in the London Borough of Hounslow. Acton, and Harrow, are the two locations with the most stations
bearing their name anywhere in the United Kingdom (apart from the full names of the London terminus stations), with seven each. All are within its latest and
Stations in the area are:
- Acton Central railway station (North London Line)
- Acton Main Line railway station (First Great Western)
- Acton Town tube station (District line and Piccadilly line)
- East Acton tube station (Central line)
- North Acton tube station (Central line)
- South Acton railway station (North London Line, and formerly District line)
- West Acton tube station (Central line)
Acton and Harrow are the only two places in the United Kingdom each to have seven railway stations bearing their names, other than London itself. Acton is also
the only place in London to have stations named after all four of the cardinal points, north, south, east, and west. The widespread provision of train services
reflects a long railway history, particularly associated (historically) with London Transport and the Great Western Railway.
North Acton has a large Great Western Railway housing estate (now privately owned), and the Old Oak Common TMD railway depot is within the usual boundary, as is
the London Transport Museum Depot which houses an extensive collection of historic and heritage rolling stock. Acton Main Line station has a busy freight yard
(operating ballast and container trains).
London Buses routes 7, 70, 72, 94, 95, 207, 228, 260, 266, 272, 283, 427, 440, 487, 607, E3, N7, N11 and N207 all serve Acton.
