How to pronounce Castelnau

When I was a boy it was always "castle-no" but nowadays quite a few new people to the area call it "castle-now". It's a bit like the word "Holborn" - a lot of new Londoners don't realize that you don't pronounce the "L". And there seem to be dozens of was of saying "Marylebone"!

Origin of the word Castelnau

At the beginning of the 18th Century, the 10th Baron of Castelnau and St Croix fled France (since he was persecuted for being a Huguenot) and his son bought land in North Barnes, the area and then main road through it therefore taking their name from Castelnau-le-Lez, near Montpellier.

The river and the pubs

THe river and the bridge are very nice and picturesque and all the trees and greenery make a nice change from the rest of London. If you like walking/running there is are long riverside paths running in both directions. Best of all are the pubs. In Castelnau there is the Bridge and the Black Lion further down towards Barnes there are several great places just across Hammersmith bridge along the river bank.

Yes a small 24hr Tescos

Castelnau is'nt a big area but it does have a small Tesco's which is 24 hour. It is part of a petrol station and is'nt ideal for a big shopping trip as it is'nt that cheap. For that you should take a ten minute walk to the Tesco's in Hammersmith broadway.
