All Souls Avenue is a street which separates Willesden from Kensal Rise.

No addresses have so far been added to All Souls Avenue, NW10

In the early 15th century, Thomas Chichele Archbishop of Canterbury from 1414-1443, acquired lands in Willesden and Kingsbury. In the year of his death he founded All Souls College, Oxford and endowed it with these lands. As a result, most of Willesden and Kensal Green remained largely agricultural until the mid-1800s, well into the Victorian era.

All Souls College, Oxford, began with a policy of selling land when it reached £800 an acre and sold land at Kensal Green to the United Land Company in 1882. After 1888, however, a more adventurous estates bursar (Henry O. Wakemen, 1888-99) followed the advice of the college agents and began to exploit the estates directly: the college built roads and assumed responsibility for the overall planning while individual plots were leased to builders.

All Souls Avenue was laid out about 1901.

By 1904, building had spread as far north as Leighton Gardens with the northern section being suburbanised by the 1920s.

Post by Maria Russ: Middle Row Bus Garage

My mum worked as a Clippie out from Middle Row Bus Garage and was conductress to George Marsh Driver. They travel the City and out to Ruislip and Acton duiring the 1950’s and 1960’s. We moved to Langley and she joined Windsor Bus Garage and was on the Greenline buses after that. It was a real family of workers from Middle Row and it formed a part of my early years in London. I now live in New Zealand, but have happy memories of the early years of London Transport and Middle Row Garage. Still have mum’s bus badge. Happy times they were.

Kensal Rise

Former location of the National Athletic Grounds

Kensal Rise railway station opened in 1873 as Kensal Green, replacing Kensal Green & Harlesden railway station which opened in 1861 at the crossing of Green Lane (later Wrottesley Road), lying in between the present station and Willesden Junction. The present station was renamed Kensal Rise in 1890.

The names Kensal Green and Kensal Rise are used somewhat interchangeably by non-residents to denote the same district, although residents differentiate between the areas based on proximity to the local tube and railway stations.

Roughly speaking, the area west of Chamberlayne Road, north of Harrow Road and south of Kensal Rise railway station is considered Kensal Green while that to the east of Chamberlayne Road and north of the station is considered Kensal Rise. These boundaries are by no means fixed however and some residents are known to use both terms with little regard for geographical accuracy.

John Rocque Map of Hampstead (1762).
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map of Hampstead covers an area stretching from the edge in the northwest of present-day Dollis Hill to Islington in the southeast.
