Hanger Lane: The Saturday Street

By Lwblog @londonwalks
Hanger Lane: The Saturday StreetThe Saturday Street is our NEW weekly series in which we unlock the stories behind the names of London's famous thoroughfares. It's compiled by London Walks guide Karen – listed by Travel + Leisure magazine as The World's Greatest Tour Guide. You can find Karen on Saturdays guiding her Old Westminster and British Museum walks. If you've got a London street query or suggestion, email Karen at the usual address
Hanger Lane W5
Location: The Borough of Ealing
Hanger Lane is derived from the old English word Hangra meaning “wooded slope”. The wooded slope is long gone, replaced with the Hanger Lane Gyratory System, a notorious road junction beloved of travel news reporters who often say its name in conjunction with the words “busy” “pandemonium” and “gridlock”. Suffice to say, we seldom lead walks at the Hanger Lane Gyratory System!
