In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Primrose Hill like this:
PRIMROSE-HILL, an eminence in the N W of the metropolis; adjacent to the N W side of Regent's park, 3½ miles N W by N of St. Paul's. It is pierced through the N skirt, by a tunnel of the Northwestern railway, 3, 360 feet long; and it adjoins, on the S, Barrow hill, with the West Middlesex reservoir. P.-hill was the scene of the murder of Sir E. God frey in 1678.
