Block Management Overview

Management is about the minutia done well. It takes a team across a range of disciplines to deal with the multiple facets of block and estate management: politics, building pathology, finance, legal knowhow and of course customer service too.

At Ringley we believe in joined up thinking and commit to signpost Clients on all things property - even if outside our day-to-day management remit

Our true business is building relationships with our people. Our people really know that they can make a difference to our residents. We match our people to what each site needs to be achieved, with you in mind. We lead the market in transparency and focusing on risk, cash, repairs and place making, usually in that order.

We are not shy of hard work and believe our ability to get stuck in and find solutions that sets us apart. We are innovative to the core and committed to implementing good ideas in pursuit of 5* service.

Being who we are would be impossible without our passionately committed people, whose qualifications we sponsor and who we support professionally to be the best they can be, as achieving a national training award and our Silver IIP status confirms.

History of Preston Road

Preston is a small locality of north-west London, in the borough of Brent. It is 13 miles from the centre of London. The word Preston originates from "the farm belonging to the priest". It was a small settlement at Preston Green, just south of Kenton. In 1220, during the reign of King Henry III, (r. 1216-1272), the name was first mentioned. By 1231, Preston was a township.  
By the mid 15th century, Preston had only two farms and a few cottages. The northern farm was probably the birthplace of John Lyon, (1534-1592), a local landowner, who founded Harrow School in 1572. After his death, the farm was granted a subsidy, for the upkeep of the school.
In 1759, during the Georgian era, there were nine buildings at Preston, including the Horseshoe Inn, which was licensed in 1751. 
There was a period of agricultural depression after the Napoleonic Wars, (1803-1815). London was in much need of hay. The depression led to an outbreak of violence in the area around 1828: desperate agricultural labourers burnt haystacks and threatened local landowners.
In 1851, during Victorian period, the Rose and Crown beerhouse was situated at the top of Preston Hill. From 1830 to 1869, beerhouses actively discouraged the sale of spirits. 
During the 19th century, Preston House was leased to various professionals, including a surgeon, a cigar importer and a solicitor. In around 1880, Preston House was acquired by George Timms. He turned the grounds into Preston Tea Gardens; and these flourished well into the 20th century. 
In 1894, Wembley Park station opened on the Metropolitan Line. In 1896, it was proposed that a station should be built serving Preston. However, this was rejected, because the local population was so small. Even in the early 20th century, the area was entirely rural. The Wealdstone Brook was described as "one of the most perfect little streams anywhere, abounding in dace and roach". 
During the 1920s, local roads were prone to flooding. However, improved communications led to suburban development. From 1923 to 1924, Forty Green was built over; and housing spread along Preston Road and Preston Hill. 
In 1908 Preston Road was opened as a station. It was named Preston Road Halt for Uxendon and Kenton. In 1932, it was re-opened at another nearby site. This is the Preston Road Underground station we know today, on the Metropolitan Line. 
By the early 1960s, all of Preston's old buildings were demolished, including Lyon's Farm and Preston House. These were replaced with blocks of flats. Today, Preston is pleasant and prosperous, despite the absence of its older buildings.
