On Walmer Road, directly north of Pottery Lane, the last remaining bottle kiln in the “Potteries” became a protected monument in 1966.
The walk starts from the Holland Park tube station. You can click the plus sign at the right for a closer view.
Back on the agenda:
A guided walk around Notting Dale with Caroline MacMillan
Thursday 13 September 2018, 10:30am – 12:30pm
Meeting place: Outside Holland Park tube station
This walk was originally planned for 20 June 2017, but on 16 June we decided to postpone it, due to the dreadful Grenfell Tower fire, which had happened just two days earlier.
Local historian Caroline MacMillan takes us on a walk through Notting Dale; from James Weller Ladbroke’s residential masterpiece to the “Potteries”, where bricks were made for London’s growing suburbs, and the “Piggeries”, where once three times as many swine as humans lived.
The walk finishes with refreshments 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 attendant 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. Those who can should comfortable walking shoes.
The group is limited to 25 people, so sign up early.
Kensington Society members £20, non-members £25
