Maida Hill  Middlesex


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Maida Hill like this:

MAIDA-HILL, a quondam-hamlet in Paddington and St. Marylebone parishes, Middlesex; near the Grand Junction canal, 3 miles WNW of St. Paul's, London. It is now a part of the metropolis; and it contains many handsome houses.

The name "Maida Hill" is now being widely used to refer to the area west of Maida Vale and north of Notting Hill: in 2011, Google Maps located it around the junction of Fernhead Road and Shirland Road, while the new "Maida Hill Market" was on the Harrow Road. However, the historic Maida Hill was south of Maida Vale, where the Edgware Road crossed the Grand Union Canal. The two churches associated with Maida Hill, Emmanuel and St Matthew, were in this area, and the canal tunnel immediately east of Edgware Road is still known as Maida Hill Tunnel. Additional information about this locality is available for St Marylebone
