This area was once noted for its pottery and boasts the last surviving kiln in London. Long associaed with alternative culture and popular with artists, Notting Hill suffered from some of the worst slums in London during Victorian Times. Things were still ripe for improvement by the 1960s, when the founder of the Notting Hill Housing Trust went on to found Shelter.
Today, although part of the area is favoured by the mega rich, links to the middle class remain with the extensive terraces of Victorian town houses. The solid virtues of their era are represented by that most English of features: the wooden floor.
These remain popular in domestic and commercial buildings from pubs and cafes to galleries and office blocks. They not only add class and beauty to a property, but are essentially practical: hard-wearing and easy to maintain.

Useful facts about Notting Hill:
Notting Hill is an area in London, England, close to the north-western corner of Kensington Gardens, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It is a cosmopolitan district known as the location for the annual Notting Hill Carnival, and for being home to the Portobello Road Market. Since it was first developed in the 1820s, Notting Hill has had an association with artists and "alternative" culture. There are also areas of deprivation to the north, sometimes referred to as North Kensington, or Ladbroke Grove, from the name of the street.
The area remained rural until the westward expansion of London reached Bayswater in the early 19th century. The main landowner in Notting Hill was the Ladbroke family, and from the 1820s James Weller Ladbroke began to undertake the development of the Ladbroke Estate. Working with the architect and surveyor Thomas Allason, Ladbroke began to lay out streets and houses, with a view to turning the area into a fashionable suburb of the capital (although the development did not get seriously under way until the 1840s). Many of these streets bear the Ladbroke name, including Ladbroke Grove, the main north-south axis of the area, and Ladbroke Square, the largest private garden square in London.
Notting Hill provides the setting for novels by G.K. Chesterton (The Napoleon of Notting Hill), Colin MacInnes (Absolute Beginners), Michael Moorcock (the Jerry Cornelius quartet), RC Sherriff (The Hopkins Manuscript), and Alan Hollinghurst (The Line of Beauty). Dan Waddel's The Blood Detective is a murder novel set in the past and present - featuring Notting Dale. The area's newer, wealthy residents are satirised in Rachel Johnson's novel Notting Hill (2006) set in grand houses surrounding a fictional communal garden.
