I was born n bred at 25 Mc Gregor Rd in 1938 and lived there until I joined the Royal Navy in 1957. It was a very interesting time what with air raid shelters,bombed houses,water tanks all sorts of areas for little boys to collect scrap and sell them on.no questions asked.A very happy boyhood ,from there we could visit most areas of London by bus and tube and we did.

Tara Wright obituary
My mother-in-law, Tara Wright, who has died aged 68 after suffering from cancer, overcame the stigma of becoming a single mother in Ireland in the late 1960s to make a new life for herself in England, where she eventually became a headteacher. She raised not only the son from her initial pregnancy but another three children from a long-lasting marriage.Born Philomena Begley in Tralee, County Kerry, to Patrick, a postmaster, and his wife, Bridget, she studied hard at the strict Mountmellick Convent school in Co Laois. Challenging the nuns’ low expectations, she won a place at Trinity College Dublin, to study English. But she left within 18 months after a romantic liaison with a fellow student resulted in pregnancy. Aged 19, she was effectively disowned by her parents and in early 1970 was forced to leave for England

Kensington

Kensington is a district of West London, England within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, located west of Charing Cross.

The focus of the area is Kensington High Street, a busy commercial centre with many shops, typically upmarket. The street was declared London's second best shopping street in February 2005 thanks to its range and number of shops.

The edges of Kensington are not well-defined; in particular, the southern part of Kensington blurs into Chelsea, which has a similar architectural style. To the west, a transition is made across the West London railway line and Earl's Court Road further south into other districts, whilst to the north, the only obvious dividing line is Holland Park Avenue, to the north of which is the similar district of Notting Hill.

Kensington is, in general, an extremely affluent area, a trait that it now shares with its neighbour to the south, Chelsea. The area has some of London's most expensive streets and garden squares.

Kensington is also very densely populated; it forms part of the most densely populated local government district (the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea) in the United Kingdom. This high density is not formed from high-rise buildings; instead, it has come about through the subdivision of large mid-rise Victorian and Georgian terraced houses (generally of some four to six floors) into flats.
