This station was opened in July 1879 by the District Railway, now the District Line on its extension from Turnham Green to Ealing Broadway. Once again it is a station that started off with a different name - Ealing Common and West Acton. A new station building was constructed in 1930 and 1931 and as with the previous two stations it was designed by Charles Holden.
Overlooking the common is The Grange which was built in 1873. It marks the limit of the Rothschild land because the family objected to licensed premises on their land. In my post of the previous station, Acton Town, I wrote about Gunnersbury Park, home of the Rothchild family.
A little further along the road is Ealing Broadway station where I ended today's walk. I have visited and written about this area and station when I wrote about the Central Line which terminates here. Ealing Broadway is also the last station on this branch of the District line. I now have just three more stations to visit on the Richmond branch of the District Line which will then complete my exploration of this line.
