Few little facts about Chiswick
The name Chiswick is of old English origin meaning "Cheese Farm" and originates from the riverside meadows and farms that are thought to have supported an annual cheese fair on Dukes Meadows up until 18th century.
For centuries fishermen an watermen have used the waterfront of Old Chiswick to deliver goods to riverside businesses and the surrounding area. By the early 19th century, the fishing industry in and around declined as the growth of the industry and the invention of the flush toilets were causing pollution in the river.
The population of Chiswick grew almost tenfold in the 19th century and the built environment is a mixture of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian.
