New history archive to open in Eastcote next weekend


Hillingdon history enthusiasts and residents have been encouraged to attend the unveiling of an historical archive next weekend - at a special summer picnic event.

The Friends of Eastcote House and Gardens Community Archive will be formally opened on Saturday by the Mayor of Hillingdon at Eastcote House Gardens.


Historian Andy Weller is the researcher and archivist and has written a number of books about the area's forgotten past.

The story of Eastcote’s oldest pub – the Black Horse – detailing connected tales of a murder, a lightning strike and an Old Bailey trial is among his publications.

He is also launching his latest book – Haydon Hall's Forgotten History – at the picnic event next Saturday.

Read more on both of these books by clicking on the links above.

There is also a summer picnic taking place at the event, hosted in the grounds of the former Eastcote House.

The new Queen Elizabeth herb beds in the walled garden will be unveiled on the day as well.

See details of the event in the poster below.

There is no car parking on the day but buses H13 and 282 stop next to Eastcote House gardens and Northwood Hills and Eastcote stations are 10-15 minutes walk away.
