Alperton
 (голосов: 0)
AlpertonAlperton originally Ealhberhington, was recorded as Alprinton in the 12th century and the name is derived from the personal name of the Saxon Ealhbeart and Old English tun, 'a farm' - means 'the farm of Ealhbeart' and his family who once lived on a site here. It is sometimes recorded that Alperton is derived from 'apple farm', but this can be discounted. The name changed to Alperton in the course of time.

The station was opened as PERIVALE-ALPERTON on 28 June 1903 and re-named ALPERTON on 7 October 1910.
