Southall is a large suburban district of west London and part of the London Borough of Ealing. It is situated 10.7 miles west of Charing Cross. Neighbouring places include Yeading, Hanwell, Hounslow and Northolt; the area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London. Southall is located on the Grand Union Canal which first linked London with the rest of the growing canal system, it was one of the last canals to carry significant commercial traffic and is still open to traffic and is used by pleasure craft. The area is home to London's largest Sikh community; the name Southall derives from the Anglo-Saxon dative æt súð healum, "At the south corner" and súð heal, "South corner" and separates it from Northolt, norþ heal, "North corner" which through a association with Anglo-Saxon holt, "Wood, copse" developed into Northolt. The district of Southall has many other Anglo-Saxon place-names such as Waxlow, its earliest record, from ad 830, is of Warberdus bequeathing Norwood Manor and Southall Manor to the archbishops of Canterbury.
Southall formed part of the chapelry of Norwood in the ancient parish of Hayes, in the Elthorne hundred of Middlesex. For Poor Law it was grouped into the Uxbridge Union and was within Uxbridge Rural Sanitary District from 1875; the chapelry of Norwood had functioned as a separate parish since the Middle Ages. On 16 January 1891 the parish adopted the Local Government Act 1858 and the Southall Norwood Local Government District was formed. In 1894 it became the Southall Norwood Urban District. In 1936 the urban district was granted a charter of incorporation and became a municipal borough, renamed Southall. In 1965 the former area of the borough was merged with that of the boroughs of Ealing and Acton to form the London Borough of Ealing in Greater London; the southern part of Southall used to be known as Southall Green and was centred on the historic Grade II* listed Tudor-styled Manor House which dates back to at least 1587. A building survey has shown much of the building is original, dating back to the days when Southall Green was becoming a quiet rural village.
Minor 19th and 20th century additions exist in some areas. It is used as serviced offices; the extreme southernmost part of Southall is known as Norwood Green. It has few industries and is a residential area, having remained for many years agricultural whilst the rest of Southall developed industrially. Norwood Green borders, part is inside, the London Borough of Hounslow; the main east west road through the town is Uxbridge Road, though the name changes in the main shopping area to The Broadway and for an shorter section to High Street. Uxbridge Road was part of the main London to Oxford stagecoach route for many years and remained the main route to Oxford until the building of the Western Avenue highway to the north of Southall in the first half of the 20th century. First horse drawn electric trams and electric trolleybuses, gave Southall residents and workers quick and convenient transport along Uxbridge Road in the first half of the 20th century before they were replaced by standard diesel-engined buses in 1960.
The opening of the Grand Junction Canal as the major freight transport route between London and Birmingham in 1796 began a commercial boom, intensified by the arrival of Brunel's Great Western Railway in 1839, leading to the establishment and growth of brick factories, flour mills and chemical plants which formed the town's commercial base. In 1877, the Martin Brothers set up a ceramics factory in an old soap works next to the canal and until 1923, produced distinctive ceramics now known and collected as Martinware. A branch railway line from Southall railway station to the Brentford Dock on the Thames was built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel in 1856, it features one of the Three Bridges. Where Windmill Lane, the railway and the Grand Union Canal all intersect – the canal being carried over the railway line cutting below in a cast-iron trough and a new cast-iron road-bridge going over both. Brunel died shortly after its completion. Sections of his bell-section rail can still be seen on the southern side being used as both fencing posts and a rope rail directly under the road bridge itself.
It is listed as a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The other notable local construction by Brunel is the Wharncliffe Viaduct which carries the Great Western Railway across the River Brent towards London and, Brunel's first major structural design. Otto Monsted, a Danish margarine manufacturer, built a large factory at Southall in 1894; the factory was called the Maypole Dairy, grew to become one of the largest margarine manufacturing plants in the world, occupying a 28 hectares site at its peak. The factory had its own railway sidings and branch canal; the Maypole Dairy Company was acquired by Lever Brothers who, as part of the multinational Unilever company, converted the site to a Wall's Sausages factory which produced sausages and other meat products through until the late 1980s. At the beginning of the twentieth century, the old parish church of Southall, St John's, rebuilt in 1837-8, was found to be too small for its congregation and, as a result, emigrated to a new building in Church Avenue, completed in 1910.
The original church building, in Western Road, is now a youth centre. The Quak
Killamarsh is a town and civil parish in North East Derbyshire, bordering Sheffield and South Yorkshire to the North West. Killamarsh is surrounded by, in a clockwise direction from the north, Rother Valley Country Park, Kiveton, Harthill, Spinkhill, Renishaw and the Sheffield suburbs of Oxclose and Holbrook. Over the years and South Yorkshire have tried to merge the town into the ceremonial county as part of the city, but disagreements have prevented this, though Killamarsh does have a Sheffield dialling code and postcode. Killamarsh was mentioned in the Domesday Book with the name Chinewoldemaresc or Chinewolde meaning "Cynewalds Marsh". There are a number of smaller communities within the town; the parish church of St. Giles contains gravestones dating back to the Saxon era as well as masonry work from the 12th century, many stained glass windows. A number of public houses in Killamarsh are over 300 years old. Domesday records Killamarsh as being valued at 12 pence; the community grew from a farming community, self-sufficient in agricultural and dairy produce since the Middle Ages.
In the 19th and 20th centuries, Killamarsh became a thriving mining town as the burgeoning Sheffield iron industry demanded coal and transport links with Sheffield matured. Coal has been mined in Killamarsh since at least the 15th century, but the first major mining operation opened at Norwood resulting in an doubling of the Killamarsh population between 1861 and 1871; the last two "pits", Westthorpe and High Moor, are now gone, casualties of the early 1980s pit closure programme. The river Rother which flanks Killamarsh had provided power to grain mills since the earliest times and was used by ironmongers and smiths from the late 18th century. Killamarsh Forge drew the special wire used in the core of the 2nd trans-Atlantic telegraph cable laid by the SS Great Eastern in 1866 as well as other equipment used in the splicing operations. There is an industrial estate located in the Norwood area north of the town and light industrial units and a business innovation centre to the south on the site of the old Westthorpe Colliery.
To the west of Killamarsh is a small animal feed mill, the factory of Ross and Catherall, a specialist alloys supplier to the aerospace industry. Killamarsh is situated on the eastern side of the Rother Valley; the centre of Killamarsh can be defined as the junction where Bridge Street meets Sheffield Road, from which point the roads spawn to all other areas of the town. The surrounding area which contains the shops and businesses on Sheffield Road and Bridge Street are known as The Village by locals. Progressing southwards up Sheepcote Hill and the communities of Upperthorpe and Westthorpe lie to the east and south east. In earlier times these were distinctively separate from the village centre but it is now difficult to define where the boundaries between the three are. To the west of the centre is Netherthorpe, which encompasses the area around the former railway lines and the new-build estates around Walford Road; the centre to south west of Killamarsh is dominated by housing estates built post-war and in the half of the 20th century.
The Rowan Tree Road area contains roads of semidetached builds on roads which are named after trees. Killamarsh's estate of pre-fabricated council homes - dubbed the "White City", is adjacent. Norwood surrounds the main road which leads to Waleswood. Between this and Upperthorpe is Church Town and Nether Green, which surround the Kirkcroft Lane area. Out on the far eastern boundaries is High Moor, which due to its significant distance from the rest of Killamarsh is described as a village in its own right. Killamarsh is the same distance to the centres of Sheffield and Rotherham. Sheffield became the dominant connecting city as its burgeoning iron and steel industry demanded coal, the road between Killamarsh and Sheffield was upgraded; the main trunk route into Killamarsh is the B6058 which connects the town centre to the A6153 In Mosborough via Halfway, the A618 at Norwood Roundabout. The A618 runs south through High Moor towards Clowne, north through Norwood towards the A57 at Aston. A handful of rural roads connect Killamarsh to the A6153 at Renishaw via Spinkhill.
Other notable main roads in Killamarsh include Bridge Street, which runs through the heart of Killamarsh's commercial area, Walford Road / Rowan Tree Road, which skirt the bulk of the town's residential area. Killamarsh is equidistant to junctions 30 and 31 of the M1. Killamarsh is well served by public transport. There are regular bus services to Sheffield and Chesterfield in the form of the 70, 70A, 71, 71A, with a handful of other local bus services to neighbouring villages; the 27 bus service ran between Killamarsh and Rotherham but the route was cut back to Crystal Peaks in 2014. From 2012 to 2015 the town was connected to the Sheffield Supertram by the SL3 bus service which ran to Moss Way via Crystal Peaks, but this was replaced in November 2015 by the 72 which runs the same route. Sheffield and South Yorkshire travel tickets include Killamarsh in their catchment area. Halfway P&R, the Supertram's southern terminus, is a convenient short distance from Killamarsh. Numerous plans and opinion polls have favoured an extension of the Supertram over the boundary into Killamarsh, but so far none have come to fruition.
Killamarsh is no longer served by passeng
Norwood known as Bainbridge, is a working-class residential neighborhood in the northwest Bronx, New York City. It bis bounded by Van Cortlandt Park and Woodlawn Cemetery to the north, the Bronx River to the east, Mosholu Parkway to the southwest; the area is dominated topographically by what was once known as Valentine's Hill, the highest point being near the intersection of 210th Street and Bainbridge Avenue, where Gun Hill Road intersects, around the Montefiore Medical Center, the largest landowner and employer of the neighborhood. Norwood's main commercial arteries are Gun Hill Road, Jerome Avenue, Webster Avenue, Bainbridge Avenue; the neighborhood is patrolled by the NYPD's 52nd Precinct. As of the 2000 United States Census, the seven census tracts that make up the neighborhood have a population of 40,748. Due to its use in city publications, subway maps, local media, "Norwood" is the neighborhood's more common name, but the area is known as "Bainbridge," most within the neighborhood's Irish American community, centered on the commercial zone of Bainbridge Avenue and East 204th Street.
However, as this Irish community left the country during the 1990s, the name "Bainbridge" has accordingly lost a great deal of currency. The name "Norwood" does not carry a great deal of currency as do nearby neighborhoods such as Riverdale and Woodlawn. At the time of the Civil War, the area was Westchester County farmland on the border of West Farms and Yonkers. Chief property owners included the Valentine and Bussing families. Woodlawn Cemetery was founded in 1863 to the north. Annexed to New York City in 1873 along with the rest of the West Bronx, the area's character shifted from rural to suburban by the turn of the 20th century; the neighborhood's streets in their present form were laid out in 1889 by Josiah Briggs between Middlebrook Parkway and Woodlawn Cemetery. Contemporary maps show that it was considered part of Williamsbridge, with which it continues to share a post office. Williamsbridge Reservoir was opened in 1890, transforming the natural lake into an artery that served the New York City water supply system until no longer needed in 1934.
A 19-acre tract of land, known as "Columbia Oval" was owned by Columbia University at GunHill Road and Bainbridge Avenue. Columbia Oval was used for sporting events including the first United States marathon, from Stamford, Connecticut in 1896. Columbia Oval became the site of Columbia University's War Hospital, taken over by the United States Army as "General Hospital No. 1" during the World War I. The area went through a series of names around the turn of the 20th century, including North Bedford Park, after the neighborhood to the south, Brendan Hill, after St. Brendan the Navigator and the parish church, established in 1908, that bears his name; the name Brendan Hill was made official by the Board of Aldermen in 1910. Norwood, the name with greatest common currency, is first attributed in the form Norwood Heights—either in honor of Carlisle Norwood, a friend of Leonard Jerome, or a contraction of "North Woods", common to a number of places in the English-speaking world. In the first half of the 20th century Norwood shared with the rest of the Bronx a population made up of European-origin Catholic and Jewish families affluent enough to leave Manhattan.
These populations were joined by Puerto Ricans during the Great Depression and post World War II eras, post-1965, by other Latinos, Albanians, West Indians, West Africans, a new group of Irish immigrants. In the 1970s through the 1990s the neighborhood was well known for its Irish population, having attracted a number of immigrants from Catholic areas of Northern Ireland who fled the Troubles. During this time that the neighborhood became known by two more names: Bainbridge, after the Bainbridge Avenue – East 204th Street commercial strip – included Irish restaurants and pubs, Little Belfast, after the city from which many immigrants came; the area contributed much in politics during this time. The musical group Black 47, made up of Irish expatriates, first made their name touring the bar scene here, their lyrics would go on to reflect the experiences of the Irish in the area, in such songs as "Funky Ceílí," "Her Dear Donegal," and "Rockin' the Bronx." Irish pubs in the area attracted press attention as centers of strong support for Irish republicanism, which supports ending the remaining British rule in Ireland.
A few pubs hosted benefits for Noraid, the Northern Irish Aid Committee, accused by Unionists of gun running for the Irish Republican Army. At least one area bar, The Phoenix, was raided by law enforcement in 1994, with Irish authorities raiding its owner's holiday home in Donegal. Thomas Maguire, the owner, five others, were charged with smuggling thousands of bomb detonators to Ireland from Tucson via New York. A jury found the defendants not guilty on all counts. A number of factors have contributed to the decline of the Irish population in Bainbridge; the most critical was the downturn in the US economy which forced many Irish immigrants to return to Ireland or to seek work in Germany. A substantial portion of the Irish population were illegally in the country, thus subject to INS investigation and deportation; the end of the Troubles period, with the signing of the Good Friday Agreement, encouraged some residents to return voluntarily to Ireland, particular

South Norwood is a district of south east London within the London Borough of Croydon. It borders the London Borough of Bromley, it is located north east of Croydon, 7.8 miles south-east of Charing Cross. Together with Norwood New Town, it forms the ward of South Norwood in the local authority of Croydon. South Norwood is an electoral ward with a resident population in 2001 of just over 14,000; the south-eastern side of the district is dominated by the 125-acre country park which opened in 1989. At the other northern end of the town is South Norwood Lake, created after the reservoir for the unsuccessful Croydon Canal went out of use, it is used by the Croydon Sailing Club and local anglers who fish for carp and perch. There are two secondary schools in the area along with a public leisure centre. South Norwood has a high street which forms part of Selhurst Road, which includes a number of banks, estate agents and a coffee house, it is a commuter district, with many residents travelling to either the financial and insurance districts of Croydon or the City of London for employment via the large railway station.
South Norwood and surrounding areas are covered by the London SE25 postcode. It is the southernmost location of the London post town. Handley's Brickworks' seven chimneys once dominated the landscape of the area, it has been demolished and the site changed into grassland and a lake, called Brickfields Meadow. Over 20 pubs were to be found in a 1 1⁄2 - mile radius; some of South Norwood's famous pubs, such as the Jolly Sailor and the Albert, are still busy. The area gained its own parish church of Holy Innocents in 1895. Arthur Conan Doyle lived on Tennison Road in South Norwood, from 1891 to 1894, contrary to popular belief, did not use the area as the setting for the Sherlock Holmes short story "The Adventure of the Norwood Builder"; this story, for the most part, takes place in Lower Norwood. The only connection between this story and South Norwood is that South Norwood's railway station Norwood Junction is used by the character Jonas Oldacre; the NatWest Bank on South Norwood High Street was, in Victorian times and until the mid-1980s, the local police station and is the most candidate for the police station mentioned in the second Sherlock Holmes novel, The Sign of the Four.
Conan Doyle's house was put up for auction. The auction was held on 28 February 2013 but the house failed to reach its reserve price. D. H. Lawrence taught at Davidson School before the First World War. In 1966, a dog called Pickles discovered the FIFA World Cup Jules Rimet Trophy under a bush in Beulah Hill, stolen during a public rare stamp exhibition at Westminster Central Hall; the area was covered by the Great North Wood, a natural oak forest that covered four miles of South London. Apart from South Norwood, the wood covered Upper Norwood, West Norwood and the Woodside and Gipsy Hill areas reflect the history of the area; the wood covered more of Lambeth and Southwark than Croydon, but the name Norwood is itself a reminder that it had closer connection with Croydon than with Lambeth or London. Jolly-sailor station opened in 1839 by the Croydon Railway, it was listed as Jolly-sailor near Beulah Spa on fare timetables. The station was renamed Norwood in 1846; the station was adjacent to a level crossing over Portland Road, making it further north than the site occupied by Norwood Junction.
As part of the construction works for the atmospheric-propulsion system, the world's first railway flyover was constructed south of Tennison Road, to carry the new atmospheric-propulsion line over the conventional steam line below. In 1847, the atmospheric propulsion experiment was abandoned; the Croydon Canal ran from New Cross to the site of West Croydon station. As it passed through South Norwood, pubs sprang up near its course; the Jolly Sailor still stands at the intersection of South Norwood High Street. The Ship, a few yards to the east, was beside the loading point for bricks from a nearby brick field across what is now High Street; the passageway through which bricks passed to the canal is still there. The Goat House pub was said to have been named after an island in the canal on which goats were kept. South Norwood is now unofficially divided into the less deprived area in the north west side of the railway, the location of a private estate, the more deprived area in the north east. In the south east of the borough, where workers for a former brick factory lived, the entrance to the estate was between a pair of pillars, though they have long since been demolished.
However the capitals were preserved and now sit on the two brick pillars at the Selhurst Road entrance to South Norwood Recreation Ground. In 2006, South Norwood Lakes in the north of the ward was the scene of a fatal stabbing. South Norwood was part of the county of Surrey and the County Borough of Croydon until 1965 when, following the enactment of the London Government Act 1963, it became part of Greater London; the town is now part of the wards of South Norwood and Woodside in the local authority of Croydon, which has the responsibility for providing services such as education, refuse collection, tourism. Woodside ward is represented by Labour Councillors Karen Jewitt, Tony Newman and Paul Scott. South Norwood ward is represented by Labour Councillors Jane Avis, Patsy Cummings and Wayne Lawlor. South Norwood Ward is part of the ethnically diverse Croydon North constituency, which had one of the largest electorates in England at the 2010 general election, whereas Woodside Ward falls within th
Norwood station is a SEPTA train station on the Wilmington/Newark Line. While on tracks owned by the company, Amtrak trains do not stop here, as it is served only by SEPTA; the line offers southbound service to Marcus Hook and Newark, Delaware and northbound service to Philadelphia and points beyond.

Pedestrian walkways and staircases connect the inbound and outbound platforms via the Amosland Road Bridge, which overpasses the tracks. Opposite the tracks from the SEPTA designated parking lot is metered lot parking; the station's inbound platform and ticket office is located next to the Norwood Public Library, a branch of the Delaware County Library System. Norwood has two low-level side platforms with walkways connecting passengers to the inner tracks. Amtrak's Northeast Corridor lines bypass the station via the inner tracks.
