Life can be a strange and surprising thing and so it's important that we have a constant. The best thing for this is a home where we feel happy and safe. The surrounding area needs to contribute to this by fitting our lifestyle and allowing for travel to where we want to go while being able to easily get back. It may seem difficult to find this but not when you look at the NW2 postcode district in the London region.
NW2 is part of the larger North Western area that is made up of eleven of these codes in total, that range from NW1 to NW11. NW starts at the centre of London and moves north-west. It was one of London's premier postcode areas and contains Boroughs such as Camden and Westminster. The plan to have many smaller postcodes was enacted in 1817 as a means to improve the postal delivery service, as well as travel and navigation. There exists a twelfth postcode here, NW1W but it is non-geographic.
The Cricklewood district is the area that utilises the NW2 code and contains Cricklewood, Dollis Hill, most of Childs Hill and parts of Willesden and Neasden. These are located in the Boroughs of Barnet, Brent or Camden and utilise the post town address of LONDON. NW2 shares it border with NW3, NW4, NW6, NW9, NW10 and NW11, which contains such places as Hampstead, Brent Cross, Kilburn, Queens Park, Colindale, Kensal Green and Hampstead Garden Suburb. The price of a home in NW2 has steadied after a slight increase, with houses going for around £525,000 for a single room to roughly £1,512,000 for five bedrooms. Flats range between approximately £247,000 to £1,495,000 for one to five bedrooms. The most costly homes her are in Ranulf Road.
Cricklewood has recently been undergoing a major redevelopment scheme and will include new railway stations. Many factories used to exist here. Notable residents from the area past and present include former London Mayor Ken Livingstone, actors Peter O'Toole, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Andrew Sachs, Jim Brook-Taylor, Tamsin Grieg, comedian Alan Carr, singer and actor Jimmy Nail and musician Phil Lynott. The area is also known for being the setting of The Goodies and Minder.
Willesden is home to a large Irish population, as well as having communities created by people form the Caribbean and India. It is popular among holidaymakers and has undergone much redevelopment and has become a prime living location. It also contains London's largest cycling club. Neasden is home to the largest Hindu temple outside of India and there have been recent redevelopments in the town centre. Dollis Hill's claim to fame was that it was the place that the invaluable code-breaking Colossus computer was constructed and was visited by Mark Twain. Childs Hill has many terraced homes and park and polymath C. Fry and aviator Amy Johnson once lived here.
