Acklam Road, W10

Acklam Road was the centre of much action during the building of the Westway

Acklam Road was built in c.1866 under the aegis of the Land and House Investment Society Ltd.

For the following one hundred years, it continued a quiet existence until the Westway elevated motorway was built alongside it - demolishing one side of the street as it was constructed.

Residents were subjected to first the noise and disruption of the construction. Then, as the motorway opened, continual traffic noise.

The estate which suceeded the houses depicted in the photo was commonly agreed as not much of an improvement.
