History Of Pimlico
Pimlico is located in the London borough of Westminster and is a small area. Originally it belonged to the Manor of Bury, which was divided by the Crown. They leased the land to their servants. It was in 1623 when james I sold the Ebury. It was sold numerous times with the last sale being to Mary Davies, an heiress, in 1666.
The land purchased was the “Five Fields.” Today this would be Pimlico, Mayfair, Knightsbridge and Belgravia. In 1677 at the age of twelve she married Sir Thomas Grosvenor, they enjoyed enormous wealth from the land.
It wasn't until late in the seventeenth century that the name of Ebury was replaced with Pimlico. The area has been described as an area of public gardens which was popular for holidays. The name was taken from Ben Pimlico, who was famous for his ale. Some believe the name was actually taken from Pimlico Path which led to Hexton Resort.
In the nineteenth century Pimlico became a top housing development area. Thomas Cubitt was contracted in 1825 by Lord Grosvenor to develop the area. Up until this point it was marsh land. The development was a number of white stucco terraced houses with large homes built along Belgravia Road, Eccleston Street and St Georges Drive. Shops were introduced and in the early twentieth century the area had it's first hospital which was aimed for children and women.
The area was mostly upper and middle class residents, many of which worked in central London and commuted daily but the area did take a dip and declined in the 1890's. It was part of West London slums by 1912 when Gerald Olivier and his family moved to the area to minister the parishioners. His son, Laurence Olivier moved with him. Many estates were established in the late nineteenth century, along with affordable quality homes and charitable housing projects.
It was the introduction of the Houses of Parliament that made Pimlico popular again, making it a hive of political activity. Up until 1928, the Trade Union Congress and the Labour Party shared offices in the area.
More development took place in the 1930's, which also saw the creation of Dolphin Square, which was one thousand two hundred and fifty upmarket apartments which was built on the land which was originally the Cubitt's building works. The apartments became a top choice for public services and MP's.
Compared to some of the other areas in London, Pimlico got off relatively lightly during the Second World War, though some buildings did sustain damage from bombs. Major re-development took place in the 1950's, with many of the gardens and Victorian homes being converted to hotels.
Pimlico was one of the very few areas of the United Kingdom to enjoy the benefits of a district heating system. It was used to heat residential estates. Pimlico District Heating Undertaking opened in 1950 and is still expanding today.
In 1972 the underground added Pimlico to the Victoria Line, which resulted in regeneration of the area.
Pimlico is better known for their thoroughbred horse-racing track which was completed in 1870. On 24 October 1877, the United States Congress actually closed for the day so their members could attend an event at the track. Twenty thousand people arrived to witness the event.
