This now fashionable area was developed in the 1840s and did not receive its name until 1938. Once notorious for the infamous slum landlord of the 1950s-60s, Peter Rachman, who crowded his properties with immigrants, the streets now have a range of trendy shops that make this one of West London’s most vibrant retail areas.
Writers in residence include Thomas Hardy in the 1860s and AJ Cronin, who started a medical practice here in 1929 and went on to write his famous novels.
Both men would be surprised at the changes to the area but would appreciate the enduring nature of traditional building materials. The natural qualities of timber, in particular, remain popular in the wooden floors of domestic and commercial buildings. Attractive, durable and easy to keep clean, such floors represent one building feature that improves with age.

Useful facts about Westbourne Green:
Westbourne Green was, with Paddington green, one of the parish's earliest settlements. It was obliterated by mid 19th-century building, much of which consisted of streets with the prefix Westbourne and was sometimes known as Westbournia. The area treated below covers central Paddington west of the G.W.R. terminus, along Harrow Road, the Grand Junction canal, and the railway; it formed Westbourne ward and a western projection of Church ward in 1901.
The name Westbourne is thought to have originated not as the west burna or stream but as a place on the west side of the stream which came to be called after it. As one of three vills in St. Margaret's, Westminster, in 1222, Westbourne presumably owed its origin to the need to administer Westminster abbey's estates. Westbourne green was mentioned in 1548 and became a common name from the 1660s for both Westbourne manor and the western half of Paddington parish, only to go out of use in the later 19th century.
There were large houses by 1664, when Sir Thomas Cox was assessed on 14 hearths and John Townsend on 11. Possibly they included the house rebuilt in the 1740s as Westbourne Place (later called Westbourne Park or House), whose garden was enlarged with parcels of roadside waste, and Westbourne Manor House. The early 19th-century village contained five notable residences: Westbourne Place, west of Black Lion Lane at its junction with Harrow Road, and, from south to north on the east side of Harrow Road, Desborough Lodge, Westbourne Farm, Bridge House, and Westbourne Manor House. Bridge House was built c. 1805 by the architect John White, owner of Westbourne Farm.
