Gardens · Bars & Clubs
Eastcote is an area established around an old village in the west of Greater London and is part of the London Borough of Hillingdon.In the Middle Ages, Eastcote was one of the three areas that made up the parish of Ruislip, under the name of Ascot. The name came from its position to the east of the parish.While no historically significant events have taken place in Eastcote, there are links to past events in the history of Britain. One such example is of Lady Mary Bankes, who lived in Eastcote for a time, and led the defence of Corfe Castle in Dorset against the Roundheads during the English Civil War. Eastcote also housed an outstation of the Bletchley Park codebreaking activities during the Second World War, with several codebreaking computers in use. This operation became the precursor to GCHQ, which remained in Eastcote after the war until the department moved to purpose-built buildings in Cheltenham in 1952.By the turn of the 20th century, the recorded population was around 600; this had reached for the ward in 2007.Part of Eastcote is in the Pinner postal district, despite being in Hillingdon (Pinner post office being located within Harrow).
