Edge Hill - a neighbourhood which includes a conservation area - can boast a number of important historical connections. For example, Edge Hill Station was where passenger railways began in 1830 when Stephenson’s Rocket pulled out with then Prime Minister, the Duke of Wellington, on board. Today, the station buildings have been redeveloped into an exciting new arts facility.
A major programme of housing clearance is currently in progress in Edge Hill as part of the Housing Market Renewal Initiative. New homes are also being created in the area, including a major Bellway development at Tunnel Road. Here Kensington Regeneration was able to offer a priority purchasing period and affordable prices to residents affected by housing clearance.
Important services and facilities located in Edge Hill include the Job Bank, HEAT and Edge Hill Youth Club.
