Notting Hill in 1871 in a fascinating series of reproductions of old Ordnance Survey plans in the Alan Godfrey Editions, ideal for anyone interested in the history of their neighbourhood or family. Three versions of this map cover the area from White City eastward to Pembridge Square and St Stephen's Square, and capture the part of Kensington known as Notting Hill. In the north-east is a portion of the Paddington parish, including Westbourne Park station; to the west is a part of Hammersmith parish, rural in the early map but later developed to include White City. The 1871 map (actually largely surveyed in 1863-5) shows the Ladbroke Estate already largely developed around Ladbroke Grove, Lansdowne Crescent, Ladbroke Square, Kensington Park Road and other well set out streets. The area was previously known as Notting Dale or 'The Kensington Potteries'. Further west development is less complete and beyond Latimer Road there are still farms. Several railways run through the map: the West London Junction Railway, the Hammersmith & City Railway, with Notting Hill station, and a small section of the GWR with Westbourne Grove station and engine sheds. At the north of the map is more countryside with Portobello Farm and Notting Barn. Extreme top right is Paddington Workhouse.

About the Alan Godfrey Editions of the 25” OS Series:
Selected towns in Great Britain and Ireland are covered by maps showing the extent of urban development in the last decades of the 19th and early 20th century. The plans have been taken from the Ordnance Survey mapping and reprinted at about 15 inches to one mile (1:4,340). On the reverse most maps have historical notes and many also include extracts from contemporary directories. Most maps cover about one mile (1.6kms) north/south, one and a half miles (2.4kms) across; adjoining sheets can be combined to provide wider coverage.
