Willesden Green


Willesden Green was recorded as Wlllesdone Grene in 1254 and was formerly a distinct hamlet. Willesden itself was recorded as Willesdune in 939 and is derived from the Old English wiell, spring' and dun, 'hill', and means - hill of the spring', referring to a once nearby natural location. Willesden was the name adopted c.1840 by the London & Birmingham Railway from the earlier spelling of Wilsdon.

The station was opened as WILLESDEN GREEN on 24 November 1879.
