Starch Green - Shepherds Bush

Many Thanks to Hammersmith and Fulham Libraries for their paper "In and around Askew Road"
"Starch Green is a small open space on the north side of Goldhawk Road between Askew Road end Ashchurch Grove, on the site of the former  Starch Green pond. This area was once known as Gaggle Goose Green. The pond, although looking very picturesque in photographs, was a source of annoyance to residents in the last part of the century as dogs were frequently allowed to bathe there. The Hammersmith Council refilled the pond in 1908 but maintaining a water supply was difficult and so in 1924 it was decided to fill it in although this was not completed until 1926"
