Yeading ( ) is an area in London. It forms part of the London Borough of Hillingdon.

Etymology

Yeading is very early Saxons and was originally ''Geddingas'' or ''Geddinges'', meaning "the people of Geddi".Catherine Kelter, ''Hayes: A Concise History'' (Hillingdon Borough Libraries, 1988), p. 9. Yeading ( ) is an area in London. It forms part of the London Borough of Hillingdon.

History

The earliest surviving documented allusion to Yeading dates from 757 AD, in which year Æthelbald of Mercia made a land grant which mentioned ''Geddinges'' (Yeading) and ''Fiscesburne'' (Crane or Yeading Brook). The first land grant including Yeading was made by Offa of Mercia in 790 to Æthelhard, Archbishop of Canterbury: "in the place called on linga Haese [Hayes] and Geddinges [Yeading] around the stream called Fiscesburna [Crane or Yeading Brook]."Kelter, ''Hayes'' (1988), p. 13.

Anglo-Saxons settlement in Yeading therefore seems probable, but the history of Yeading in subsequent centuries is not as clear as that of Hayes, Hillingdon. Such details as the names of many Yeading manor holders remain unknown.

Dock (maritime) was one of many docks built along the Grand Union Canal in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The main industry in Hayes, Hillingdon and Yeading at this time was Brickworks, and the canal provided a reliable way of transporting larger numbers of bricks. Yeading's brickworkers could be known to keep pigs as a second source of income. A Bourgeoisie writer, one Elizabeth Hunt, wrote in 1861 that in "Yeading dirt, ignorance and darkness reign supreme."Kelter, ''Hayes'' (1988), p. 39. In 1874, however, one James Thorne wrote that the inhabitants of Yeading were "always found civil".James Thorne, ''Handbook to the Environs of London, alphabetically arranged'' (London, 1876), pp. 334-6.

Yeading was still not developed in the 1920s. Yeading Lane was often flooded, and access beyond Yeading to Northolt seems to have been by footpath only before the World War I. During the War, a properly constructed road was built linking the Great Western Railway station at Hayes and Harlington railway station with the L.N.E.R. line at Northolt tube station. Yeading was still mainly a rural area.Kelter, ''Hayes'' (1988), p. 59.

After the World War II, a large Prefabricated home estate was erected in Yeading. By 1956, Yeading's Tilbury Square was still without gas and electricity, and oil stoves and open fires were still used; the public house ''The Willow Tree'', reputedly some 400 years old (now demolished), was lit by three cylinders of Calor.Kelter, ''Hayes'' (1988), pp. 72-3. The Yeading Lane estate underwent largescale development in the late 1960s and '70s. Yeading ( ) is an area in London. It forms part of the London Borough of Hillingdon.
