To the east, Shepherd's Bush is bounded by the physical barrier to movement of the West London railway line and the grade-separated West Cross Route (part of the aborted 1960s London Motorway Box scheme); the Holland Park Roundabout and the small Addison Bridge to the south are the only ways to cross this barrier from Shepherd's Bush.

Commerce

Commercial activity in Shepherd's Bush is focused on the West 12 shopping centre opposite Shepherd's Bush Central line station and on the many small shops which run along the northern side of the Green.

Shops on Uxbridge Road on the north side of the Green

Originally built in the 1970s with a rooftop car park and connecting bridge to the station, the shopping centre was significantly redeveloped in the 1990s.

Residential

The residential areas of Shepherd's Bush are primarily located to the west of the Green, either side of Uxbridge Road and Goldhawk Road to the southwest, and about as far as Askew Road in the west. Much of the housing in this area consists of three- or four-story terraces dating from the late 19th century, and subsequently divided up into small flats.


History

The name Shepherd's Bush is thought to have originated from the use of the common land here as a resting point for shepherds on their way to Smithfield Market in the City of London.[1] An alternative theory is that it could have been named after someone in the area, because in 1635 the area was recorded as "Sheppards Bush Green".[2] Common land, or just common, is frequently used to describe a parcel of land, usually near the centre of towns and villages, which is thought to be owned in common by all the members of the community. ...

Transport

The common itself is served by three London Underground stations - two of which are named Shepherd's Bush, confusingly. Shepherd's Bush (Central line) at the eastern apex of the common is the busiest station (both in terms of passengers and trains), whilst Shepherd's Bush (Hammersmith and City line) is about 600m to the west (near the north-western corner of the green). The remaining south-western corner of the green is served by Goldhawk Road, also on the Hammersmith & City line. (Formerly part of the Metropolitan Line).

As a result of the current development work at White City, two new transport hubs will be created in the area.

The station will be positioned east of Wood Lane with its entrance north of the line, to reduce the walking distance for those connecting with the Central line at the existing White City station.
