Wood Lane


Wood Lane. There have been three stations in the area with this name, the latest being a new station on the Hammersmith & City line. The other two were a station on the same line situated across the road from the present one, closer to Shepherd's Bush, opened 1 May 1908 and closed 25 October 1959 (by which time it had been renamed White City) and a terminal station on the Central London Railway opened 14 May 1908 and closed 23 November 1947 (to be replaced by the Central Line station named White City further to the north). The name Wood Lane came into use here in the first few decades of the 19th century and reflects the fact that this was once situated in London's countryside. It is one of nine Wood Lanes in Greater London, but with the presence of the BBC Television Centre and the new Underground station serving the Westfield development, this is undoubtedly the best known of them.

The present Wood Lane station opened on 13 October 2008.
