The History of Shepherd's Bush
(Shepherd's Bush, W12 London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, London)
Shepherd's Bush (also Shepherds Bush, often shortened to Bush) is an area of west London in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham. Although it is primarily
residential in character, its focus is the shopping area of Shepherd's Bush Green, the north side of which is home to the Westfield shopping centre. The main
thoroughfares are Uxbridge Road, Goldhawk Road and Askew Road, all containing a large number of small and mostly independent shops, pubs and restaurants. The
Loftus Road football stadium in Shepherd's Bush is home to Queens Park Rangers Football Club. In 2011, the population of the area was 39,724.
Commercial activity in Shepherd's Bush is now focused on the Westfield shopping centre next to Shepherd's Bush Central line station and on the many small shops
which run along the northern side of the Green. Dating back to the early part of the last century, Shepherd's Bush Market stands on the East side of the railway
viaduct between Uxbridge Road & Goldhawk Road. Serving both the local Irish and Afro-Caribbean community, it's a good place to head for music CD's, fresh and
cooked foods, yams & other exotic fruits plus household goods and furnishings.
The common itself is served by five London Underground stations. Shepherd's Bush station, on the Central line at the eastern apex of the common, is the busiest,
whilst Shepherd's Bush Market station on the Hammersmith & City line is about 600 m to the west (near the north-western corner of the green). The third station,
Goldhawk Road station on the Hammersmith & City line, serves the south-western corner of the green. The primarily residential area to the west of the common, also
recognised as part of Shepherd's Bush, is also served by White City and Wood Lane. This area of London is also served by eighteen bus routes.
The junkyard in the sitcom Steptoe & Son was situated at the fictional 24 Oil Drum Lane, Shepherds Bush. The O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire (formerly BBC Television
Theatre) is a music venue in Shepherd's Bush, London, England, run by the Academy Music Group. The BBC used to have many offices in Shepherds Bush, but many have
now been closed or re-located. They included the Lime Grove Studios on the site of previous film studios Gaumont and Gainsborough Pictures. Sulgrave House,
Threshold & Union Houses and Kensington House, now a hotel. The BBC's presence in the Bush is now concentrated in two huge sites on Wood Lane, Television
Centre and the White City building. The Media Village was built next to the White City building in the mid-1980s on the former site of the White City Stadium.
It is used by the BBC and other media companies including Red Bee Media (formerly BBC Broadcast, now a private company). Television Centre was the national home
of BBC Television, and it is from there that BBC TV and radio news, the BBC website and a host of TV drama and light entertainment were broadcast. The BBC moved
all of its news operations from Television Centre to new Broadcasting House in central London in 2012.
