A guided walk around Notting Dale with Caroline MacMillan

Tuesday, 20 June 2017, 10:30am

Meeting place: Outside Holland Park tube station

Local historian Caroline MacMillan takes us on a walk through Notting Dale: from James Weller Ladbroke’s residential masterpiece to the “Potteries”, where millions of bricks were made for London’s growing suburbs in the 19th century, and the “Piggeries”, where there were three times as many pigs as humans in the 19th century.

The walk finishes with refreshment at The Mitre pub, which stands on the site of Notting Hill Farm, at the corner of Holland Park Avenue and Ladbroke Grove.

Beer, wine or soft drink at the pub is included in the price. Please state preferred choice of drink for each attendee when registering below.

It’s a two-hour walk with some gentle slopes, so it’s not suitable for those who can only walk short distances.

The size of the group is limited to 25 people, so sign up early.

Kensington Society members £20, non-members £25
