History Of West Brompton
West Brompton was originally an area that was brimming with market gardens and fields. It stayed this way throughout the eighteenth century. The Gunter family acquired the land in 1801.
During the nineteenth century the Gunter family build thousands of homes with roads named after associates. Edith Grove was Captain Gunter's daughter who sadly passed away at the age of eight.
In 1837 the Brompton Cemetery was created on previous fields and nurseries which was mainly owned at that time by Lord Kensington. The Epuitable Gas Company purchased forty aces of land in 1844 which gave access to Fulham Road.
The cemetery had a central chapel. The chapel was a miniature version of St Peters Basilica which can be found in Rome. In 1852 it became the first and the only London cemetery that was held under government control. Two thousand people have been buried in the cemetery.
Being an area that was mostly market gardens it was a top choice for a hospital to be based near London. Ten years later a Cancer Hospital was formed in 1859 designed by Messrs John Young and Son Architects and built by Lawrence Company. It became a world known hospital, The Royal Marden Hospital.
The Kensington Canal was completed in the area, it was very short lived. Gunter's Bridge was completed, which spanned over the canal in 1826. Some parts of the bridge can still be seen today. Lily Langtry public house is the oldest building which was built in 1833 as Lillie Arms, it was part of the brewery at the time.
With the decline of the canal, the railway was added to meet the growing demand for commuters that were moving into the area. The West London Extension Joint Railway opened in the 1860's joining Kensington to Clapham Station. West Brompton Station was opened in 1866. The original station was designed by Sir John Fowler. Lillie Bridge Railway and Engineering Depot was started in 1872. From 1887 the station gave access to the Earl's Court Exhibition grounds.
In 1869 District Railway opened their own station as an extension to Gloucester Road Station. The plan was to connect it to the West London Extension, but this never took place. In 1880, District Railway extended to Putney Bridge.
During the Second World War, in 1940, a number of stations were damaged by bomb blasts with services between Willesden junction and Clapham Junction having to be stopped. Luckily the underground stations were still in use at the time. The West London Extension railways platforms and builders were later demolished as a result.
Portland Villas were built in 1853, they were the earliest residential development of semi-detached homes. In 1864 small terraced houses were built along with some retail outlets to service the growing community of West Brompton.
The West Brompton Football Club was started in the nineteenth century. From 1869 to 1874 the Middlesex County Cricket Club chose Lillie Grounds as their home.
The Earl's Court Exhibition and Fair Grounds were opened in 1887 by John Robinson Whitley. There was an entrance to the grounds in West Brompton. One of the first shows was the American Wild West Show, which was attended by Queens Victoria and resulted in the show becoming a great success that went on tour, but not without its share of heartache. A number of the performers passed away during the tour, along with a two year old girl who fell from her mothers arms during a horse ride.
Interestingly one of the most famous residents of West Brompton was the renowned author of children's books, Beatrice Potter.
