--- NEED TO REVIEW/ LOOK AT OTHERS --

Hanwell seemingly has always had a history of pubs. The Uxbridge Road (then known as the Oxford Road) was a toll road between Uxbridge and Tyburn in the 18th Century. The constant movement of people along the road, brought about the establishment of coaching inns along the road as it passed through the parish of Hanwell.

As most local know, Jim Marshall ‘the Father of Loud’ began making and selling his amplifiers at his music shop at 76 Uxbridge Road in 1962. Pete Townshend, Ronnie Wood, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix were among the artists who bought their amps in Hanwell. This is celebrated every year by the Hanwell Hootie, a free Hanwell based music festival.

This isn't the only music connection Hanwell has, in the late 1960s Hanwell community centre provided rehearsal rooms for the rock bands Uriah Heep and Deep Purple. Much of the album Deep Purple in Rock was composed there in 1969.

The iconic actor, filmmaker and composer Charlie Chaplin boarded and attended the Central London District School from 1896 - 1898. Also known as the Cuckoo School (after the nearby Cuckoo Farm located near the river Brent), it accommodated children from impoverished backgrounds.
