St John's Wood

St John's Wood was recorded as Sci Johannis in 1294, and the wood was granted to the Knights Templars of St. John of Jerusalem but later passed into the possession of the Hospitallers of this Order. This fashionable district of north¬west London was first recorded as (Grete) St. John's Wood in 1558.

The Metropolitan Railway station opened as ST JOHN'S WOOD ROAD on 13 April 1868; re-named ST JOHN'S WOOD on 1 April 1925; and further re-named LORDS on 11 June 1939. It was replaced together with MARLBOROUGH ROAD by a new St John's Wood station on the Bakerloo Line which opened on 20 November 1939. The new station was sited between the two closed stations and was originally planned to be named ACACIA ROAD.
