Eastcote is a place in the London Borough of Hillingdon and located across postal districts HA4 and HA5. The 2001 UK census gave the population of the Eastcote and South Ruislip Ward as 11,480. Formerly home of an American Air Force Base and elementary school, Eastcote is home to the historical dovecot and coach house to the now demolished Elizabethan Eastcote House. Allen and Young carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Eastcote area.
Eastcote House was home to the Hawtrey family. Two other key houses were the centres of life in old Eastcote, Haydon Hall (again demolished in the 1960’s) whose most famous resident was Lady Bankes, who resisted soldiers in the Civil War from taking Corfe Castle, Dorset. Highgrove House is the third, and this still stands, although it was rebuilt in c1879 after a fire gutted much of the original building. Churchill is said to have stayed there during his honeymoon and the Queen of Sweden was resident during World War One.
In the same place is also a walled garden which is believed to be of the same age. Similarly Haydon Hall, another grand manor house from the area was pulled down in the 1960s. The tube line came to Eastcote in 1904, and now both the Piccadilly and Metropolitan lines run through Eastcote.
During and just after World War II, Eastcote had an outstation from the Bletchley Park codebreaking establishment, where some of the Bombes and two Collossus code breakers which were used to decode German Enigma messages were housed. This closed when GCHQ was established at Cheltenham.
