Kensal Green Resident of Kensal Green since 1987  

I returned from New York in 1987 & have lived in Kensal Green ever since. This was pre-Sainsburys & pre traffic lights on Ladbroke Grove/Harrow Road, way pre-gastropubs. Yes we have had terrible events - no doubt about that - & yes, it would be easy to condemn the place as a result but there are places & areas that remain as untouched as they can by what's happened. Please don't desert the area or give it a try because of this or things will never get better.

Kensal Green Empty Shop on College Road  

Hi, I have lived in KG for 5 years now and have always wondered what the empty premises on College Road/Burrows Road used to be. It's the blue premises on the corner opposite the now defunct pink Italian Deli.

Kensal Green  

It was a chemist for many years, probably up to the mid 1950's and was known by the owners name G. Dance. Mr. Dance was a very old man and when he retired the shop was left empty for a few years until it re opened as a fruit and veg shop run by a man called Ted. This was active until the late 60/early 70's when he changed to shoe mending. This was not successful and closed down in the mid seventies. I lived next door from 1946 to 1971.

Kensal Green YOGA SPACE  

Try the Elm wood tennis club. You will have to join a s a social member (30 for the year) but, if you like the space it might be worth it. And please let me know if it happens as I only live across the road from it and am a yoga teacher. Good luck.

Kensal Green to all you Kensal Greenies  

Are there any decent websites that give background info on the area? History, shopping, amenies - that sort of thing. I'm supposed to be copywriting for a brochure and was Googling - that's how I found this site! Very neat.

Kensal Green Swimming in Kensal Green  

I've lived in Kensal Green for years; love swimming but hate the jubilee. I go to the porchester (same group as Jubilee) and a great old Victorian place. BUT it's a bit of a trek as it's just off Westbourne Grove. There are pools in the nearby sports clubs but you'd have to be a member and that comes at a price.
Did anyone else recommend any better solutions? i've always thought there might be something good up by the new Academy just off All Soul's Avenue - but never looked.
