Lancaster Road Crossroads

England E1 6FQ, United Kingdom

Created By: Cecily Powell


Once a major crossroads with busy shops and the site of Silchester Baths, the heart of the Notting Dale laundress' world. At its peak, in the early 20th century, there were over 300 laundry workshops and factories in North Kensington. Despite the long hours and hardship, many women were able to establish new modes of self and collective identity, as well as economic independence. “To marry an ironer is as good as a fortune.”

Methodist Church was at the heart of 19th C reform and has once again been a focal point for the community since the fire at Grenfell
