is a largely residential area of Ealing
in West London
. It is centred on Northfield Avenue, a shopping street of mostly independent shops and restaurants. The area is served by the Piccadilly Line
and by bus services running between Greenford
and by night bus
services to Central London
It is home to Little Ealing Primary School, Fielding Primary School and Mount Carmel Catholic Primary School.
Northfield Avenue has an annual street festival organised by the local trade association.
Maps of Ealing from 1890 and before show Northfields as almost entirely rural, with just a few houses along Little Ealing Lane. The rest of the area was largely orchards. The arrival of the Metropolitan District Railway
in 1883, and the opening of the Northfields Halt
in 1908, prompted development of the area.
A former cinema on Northfield Avenue is the area's only Grade 2* listed building
. Built in 1932 in an unusual Spanish style, it closed in 1987 and was converted into the Ealing Christian Centre
Other Grade 2 listed buildings in Northfields are:
- Rochester House,
- Place House (King Fahad Academy for Girls),
- The Forester Public House,
- Northfields tube station,
- 53 Northfield Road (warehouse).
