Godson Yard is a new development dating from 2005.

No addresses have so far been added to Godson Yard, NW6

The original building here was first constructed by Mr George Godson in 1884.

The building was planned in 1880 when the Paddington Estate made three agreements with different builders. One of these was an agreement with George Godson for 50 terraced houses on the Paddington side of Kilburn Park Road, (which was originally known as Park Road). These houses ranged between £200 and £500.

The Church Commission for England/Ecclesiastical Commissioners were the freehold owners of most of these houses and held onto the now Godson Yard building until 1955.

The first leaseholder at this address was a Mr A Godson (presumably a relative of Mr G Godson) who rented the house to Mr Herbert Henry King (described in the 1891 census as a corn and hay merchant) who ran the building as a granary and lived there with his wife Alice.

In 1910, the front building of Godson Yard (239 Kilburn Park Road) comprised the following: Store rooms, coal cellars, a shop, stables (where the mews houses now stand), three stalls, a small yard, a Chaff cutting room*, and residential accommodation of 6 bedrooms and a bathroom.

On May 1955 an auction of 239 Kilburn Park Road, as part of ’the former Paddington Estate’, described the property as:
’A freehold ground rent of £5 per annum’ as ’business premises and builder’s yard’.

The story continues in 2005 when Merry May Homes formed links with David Corley Architects* and planning permission was granted to transform the period property into contemporary living spaces now known as Godson Yard.

But most were anxious about how they would feed their families and service thousands of pounds of debt racked up to buy cars. Continue reading...

Maida Vale

Maida Vale took its name from a public house named after John Stuart, Count of Maida, which opened on the Edgware Road soon after the Battle of Maida, 1806.

The area was developed by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners in the early 19th century as middle class housing. The main building started in the mid 19th century and from the 1860s red brick was used. The first mansion blocks were completed in 1897.

Maida Vale nowadays makes up most of the W9 postal district - the southern part of Maida Vale at the junction of Paddington Basin with Regent's Canal, with many houseboats, is known as Little Venice. The area to the south-west of Maida Vale, at the western end of Elgin Avenue, was historically known as Maida Hill.

Maida Vale tube station was opened on 6 June 1915, on the Bakerloo Line.
