Hook, London

Hook is a place in south west London, England. It forms part of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and is located 13.5 miles (21.7 km) south west of Charing Cross.

Hook was a civil parish which formed part of the Surbiton Urban District of Surrey from 1895. [ [http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/relationships.jsp?u_id=10188209 Vision of Britain] - Hook civil parish ( [http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/bound_map_page.jsp?first=true&u_id=10188209&c_id=10001043 historic map] )] The urban district became a municipal borough in 1936 and in 1965 its former area was transferred to Greater London. The former area of the Hook parish, together with that of the Chessington parish, form a protrusion of Greater London with the Surrey districts of Elmbridge to the west, Mole Valley to the south and Epsom and Ewell to the east.

Hook forms part of the Chessington post town.
