Although the building of the Grand Union Canal in 1805 linked the area to London and the Midlands, it remained agricultural land until well into the 19th century. The name Kensal New town was first recorded in 1876.
The famous cemetery with its Dissenters’ chapel was opened in 1822. As the first public cemetery in London, it can boast of being the resting place of luminaries such as Brunel, Trollope and Thackeray. The rapid urban development from 1860 has reached a point today where the area is becoming not only gentrified but trendy - with classy shops lightening the traditional brick of the Victorian terraces.
In the sturdy endurance of these buildings, timber plays an essential role, with wooden floors remaining popular in both domestic and commercial buildings. They are easy to keep clean and maintain – with a timeless beauty and durability that adds prestige and value to any property.

Did you know about Kensal Town?
Kensal Town is a district of London, England. It is located at the boundary of the City of Westminster and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It is included in the W postcode area and was first recorded in 1876 as Kensal New Town. This name had been used since the 1840s to distinguish the area south of the Harrow Road where new housing was largely occupied by Irish immigrants. During the 19th century, the dog dealer Bill George's 'Canine Castle' establishment was on the Kensal Road.
Kensal Town is recorded in the 1861 England Census as the birthplace of a resident of St. Pancras and in the 1851 Census as a village in its own right. Bill George who came from Kensal new town was famous for being a dog dealer and had a property in the area named ‘canine castle’.
A third area south of Harrow Road, around the area of Kensal Road is infrequently referred to as Kensal Town. Since Harrow Road is generally considered to be the southern boundary of Kensal Green, most residents class Kensal Road and its environs as part of Westbourne Park. Once again, this is in no way an official classification.
