North Ealing 19 / 270

Opened in 1903, North Ealing was one of the first sections of the Underground’s surface lines to operate electric instead of steam trains.

The Saxon name for Ealing was recorded c. 700 as Gillingas, meaning ‘place of the people associated with Gilla’. Over the centuries, the area has been known as Yealing, Zelling and Eling, until Ealing became the standard spelling in the 19th century.
