History

Perivale was an ancient parish in the county of Middlesex. It formed part of Greenford Urban District from 1894 to 1926, and was then absorbed by the Municipal Borough of Ealing. Before the 1930s residential building expansion, the fields of Perivale were used to grow hay for the working horses of Victorian era London, a scene described in the ending of John Betjeman's poem 'Return to Ealing':

''"...And a gentle gale from Perivale/blows up the hayfield scent."'' Perivale is a small suburb in the London Borough of Ealing, west of Charing Cross, central London.
