Warwick Avenue


Warwick Avenue. Many of the streets in the old manor of Paddington are connected with families who leased land from the Bishop of London. The original lessee was Sir John Frederick of Burwood in Surrey. His great-grandson married Jane Warwick of Warwick Hall in Cumberland in 1778 and the street is named in her honour.

Prior to the station's opening the name was planned to have been WARRINGTON CRESCENT, but it was opened as WARWICK AVENUE on 31 January 1915.
