An Oral History Documentary of North West Kensington

North-West Kensington has a fascinating industrial and social history but is frequently overshadowed by neighbouring Notting Hill to the south and east. This project addresses this, putting the people who have lived there at the centre of this history and bringing to life for new generations the stories of the area, from overcrowding and street games, to housing campaigns, solidarirty and movements of people into the area, riots, industry, and even a declaration of independence from the rest of the United Kingdom, this project asks those who lived through these amazing times and tells their stories.
