Japanese Knotweed Removal in St. John’s Wood, NW8


Japanese Knotweed removal and advice by Local Chartered Surveyors and PCA members covering St. John’s Wood, NW8 and the surrounding areas.

Interesting fact about St. Johns Wood … St John’s Wood Barracks is a former military base. During the mid 19th century the barracks were occupied by the Foot Guards.  In 1880 the Royal Horse Artillery moved in and it served as headquarters for Royal Horse Artillery troops responsible for (among other things) firing royal salutes in central London until February 2012 when (the lease on the property having expired) the King’s Troop, Royal Horse Artillery relocated to the Royal Artillery Barracks, Woolwich.

In 1804 a detachment of the Corps of Gunner Drivers (support unit for an artillery brigade stationed in St James’s Park) was billeted in farm buildings on the St John’s Wood site. By 1810 the Board of Ordnance had decided to base the brigade in its entirety on the site, and negotiated a lease from the Eyre family who owned the land.[1] A long two-storey barrack block designated the New Artillery Barracks was completed in 1812.[
