Block Management Hammersmith
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Hammersmith.
History of Hammersmith
Hammersmith is part of west London, 4.3 miles south-west of Charing Cross. Its name went through several stages, and is thought to derive from "(Place with) a hammer smithy or forge". The first spelling is Hamersmyth in 1294; then Hameresmithe in 1312, Hamyrsmyth in 1535, and Hammersmith in 1675.
In 1745, two Scots, James Lee and Lewis Kennedy, set up the Vineyard Nursery. This was over six acres, and was dedicated to landscaping plants. Since then, many plants were introduced, including fuchshia and rose tree.
In 1868, Hammersmith was the official name of the parish, originally in the county of Middlesex. Industrial developments included the Osram lamp factory at Brook Green, and the J. Lyons food factory. During both World Wars, Waring & Gillow's furniture factory, became the site of aircraft manufacture.
