The Windsor Castle dates from the 1820s but its main incarnation was as a classic Victorian public house, seminal in 1970s musical history.

It started life as the building at one end of houses on the south side of the Harrow Road, then called Ormes Green.

When rebuilt about 1850, the new building was typical of the villa development in this part of Harrow Road. It has turrets on the top reminiscent of its namesake: the real Windsor Castle.

After passing about a hundred years as a classic local pub, it burst into musical significance.

It was renowned for early gigs by the Rolling Stones and the Who.

The pub was a punk rock venue in the mid to late 1970s. Playing there, among others, were Dr Feelgood, The Jam, U2 and the Psychedelic Furs. The 101`ers with Joe Strummer - his band prior to forming the Clash - played there. The inspiration for the ‘Protex Blue’ track is said to come from the contraceptive machine in the toilets of the Windsor Castle.

After moving considerably downmarket as a strip club, it closed in 2009.

Grenfell Tower final death toll: police say 71 lives lost as result of fire
Officers say they have recovered and identified the final two bodies from the tower and do not expect to find any moreAll the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire named so farThe Grenfell Tower fire took the lives of 71 people, police have said, after recovering what they believe to be the last of the bodies.Officers investigating the disaster said on Thursday they had identified the final two people who died as 71-year-old Victoria King and her 40-year-old daughter, Alexandra Atala.The first thing to note is that the police’s expected and confirmed death tolls were always a lot lower than much of the speculation. The shadow home secretary and others, such as the singer Lily Allen, had insisted at various times that the number must be well into the hundreds.

Westbourne Park

Westbourne Park was originally, with Westbourne Green, an area simply known as Westbourne.

Westbourne Green was, with Paddington Green, one of the area's earliest settlements. A growing residential area lay to the west of Westbourne Green.

For a short while known as Westbournia, when this part of London was developed, Westbourne Park became the name given to the area. This is reflected in a number of street names - notably Westbourne Park Road and in the Underground station. The first station operated from 1866 to 1871. In 1871 it was replaced by another station further east.

The good transport encouraged many to move into this area. To the north and east there were extensive railway yards. More recently there is also a Westbourne Park bus garage, built where there once were railway yards, just northeast of the underground station.

The name Westbourne (which means 'west of the river') was by the nineteenth century applied to the river itself (previously called the Bays Water amongst other names).
