Oakwood Court is a street in West Kensington.

Oakwood Court runs between Abbotsbury Road and Addison Road. It is a complex of 7-storey red-brick Victorian Mansion blocks, which have the same name as the street. The blocks are surrounded by lawns and there is a small garden of trees and shrubs in the middle of the street.

In 1855 William Brinkley of Hanover Square built No. 25 Addison Road, near St Barnabas Church, for William Reid. Reid was involved in various transactions on the estate, but he bought No. 25 as his own residence. It was later known as Oak Lodge. In 1862 the house was bought by James McHenry, a railway speculator, who made an abortive attempt to buy the whole estate from Lady Holland before she sold to the Earl of Ilchester. He did buy the freehold of Oak Lodge.

In about 1900, some speculative builders, William Henry and Edward James Jones, of Victoria Street Westminster, bought Oak Lodge. They knocked down the house and filled in the Moat’s medieval ponds which had survived as an ornamental lake.

On the site they began the construction of Oakwood Court which was to be a series of 7-storey mansion blocks in red brick. It took decades for all the blocks to be built. The original designs were by William Hunt an architect from Kensington. But the plans for Nos. 31-62 Oakwood Court, which were built in about 1928-30, were by Richardson and Gill.

The flats themselves have as many as 4 bedrooms and can be very large indeed. They make ideal family flats. A major refurbishment of the blocks and the flats has recently been carried out.

There is a more modern development of flats and houses on the corner of the street, which is called Manderley.

In the photo of Blechynden St on the right hand side the young man in the doorway could be me. That is the doorway of 40 Blechynden St.

I lived there with My Mum Eileen and Dad Bert and Brothers Ron & Peter. I was Born in Du Cane Rd Hosp. Now Hammersmith Hosp.

Left there with my Wife Margaret and Daughter Helen and moved to Stevenage. Mum and Dad are sadly gone.

I now live on my own in Bedfordshire, Ron in Willesden and Pete in Hayling Island.

Have many happy memories of the area and go back 3/4 times a year now 75 but it pulls back me still.

John and I were married in 1960 and we bought, or rather acquired a mortgage on 31 Princedale Road in 1961 for £5,760 plus another two thousand for updating plumbing and wiring, and installing central heating, a condition of our mortgage. It was the top of what we could afford.

We chose the neighbourhood by putting a compass point on John’s office in the City and drawing a reasonable travelling circle round it because we didn’t want him to commute. I had recently returned from university in Nigeria, where I was the only white undergraduate and where I had read a lot of African history in addition to the subject I was studying, and John was still recovering from being a prisoner-of-war of the Japanese in the Far East in WW2. This is why we rejected advice from all sorts of people not to move into an area where there had so recently bee

Holland Park

Holland Park is a district, an underground station (and indeed a park) in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Holland Park has a reputation as an affluent and fashionable area, known for attractive large Victorian townhouses, and high-class shopping and restaurants.

The district was rural until the 19th century. Most of it was formerly the grounds of a Jacobean mansion called Holland House. In the later decades of that century the owners of the house sold off the more outlying parts of its grounds for residential development, and the district which evolved took its name from the house. It also included some small areas around the fringes which had never been part of the grounds of Holland House, notably the Phillimore Estate and the Campden Hill Square area. In the late 19th century a number of notable artists (including Frederic Leighton, P.R.A. and Val Prinsep) and art collectors lived in the area. The group were collectively known as ’The Holland Park Circle’. Holland Park was in most part very comfortably upper middle class when originally developed and in recent decades has gone further upmarket.

Of the 19th-century residential developments of the area, one of the most architecturally interesting is The Royal Crescent designed in 1839. Clearly inspired by its older namesake in Bath, it differs from the Bath crescent in that it is not a true crescent at all but two quadrant terraces each terminated by a circular bow in the Regency style which rises as a tower, a feature which would not have been found in the earlier classically inspired architecture of the 18th century which the design of the crescent seeks to emulate. The design of the Royal Crescent by the planner Robert Cantwell in two halves was dictated by the location of the newly fashionable underground sewers rather than any consideration for architectural aesthetics.

Holland Park is now one of the most expensive residential districts in London.

Holland Park station, on the Central London Railway, opened on 30 July 1900. The station building was refurbished in the 1990s.
