    6 Quirky Facts About Notting Hill

    1. Pigs & Pottery
      The heavy clay soil in the area made it ideal for potters and in the 19th century Pottery Lane was home to tile and brick kilns that helped house much of London. Other portly residents to move in were pigs. The porkers had been kicked out of Marble Arch and settled in Notting Hill. So many of them that at one time the area was known as ‘The Ocean’, extensively a sea of pig slurry, thanks to the many holes dug for clay being filled to overflowing by the digestive systems of the porcine populace. Which must have smelt delightful!
    2. Hidden Gardens
      It was wealthy landowner James Ladbroke in the 1840s that started to gentrify this outer London wilderness. One of his many ideas was to group homes in squares formed around communal gardens. The gardens were gated and for the exclusive use of the wealthy homes around it. His idea caught on and soon other areas of London were building homes in squares with their own gardens, typified in the movie Notting Hill. “Whoopsie Daisy!”
    3. Blitz
      Notting Hill was severely hit during the blitz and many of the grand homes that had been destroyed were replaced by HMOs (houses of multiple occupancy). As post-war Britain sent out pleas to the Commonwealth, inviting migrant workers to help fill important roles, areas like Notting Hill soon had Afro-Caribbean populations who all to often were living in squalid conditions. One landlord, Peter Rachman became so synonymous with the slum conditions he gave his tenants, that the term ‘Rachmanism’ entered the Oxford English Dictionary. This led to new laws that improved rented housing across the UK.
    4. Coat of Many Colours
      While Notting Hill has certainly experienced all kinds of race struggles, with the Teddy Boy fuelled race riots of the 50s and social problems of the 80s, these days the area rightly celebrates its multi-cultural roots. One of the most diverse areas of London it’s a melting pot for art, food, music, and home to the famous Notting Hill Carnival.
    5. Carnival!
      Following the 50’s race riots that saw 160 arrests, residents and race activists created an event to both celebrate and introduce people to Caribbean culture. A series of smaller events were held but the birth of the modern carnival is considered to have been 1966 when Rhaune Laslett, a community leader and steal drum player, organised a children’s event and parade. “We felt that although West Indians, Africans, Irish and many other nationalities all live in a very congested area, there is very little communication between us. If we can infect them with a desire to participate, then this can only have good results.” Today the event is the second largest carnival in the world (after Rio), attracts over 2.5 million visitors and brings an estimated £93,000,000 to the local economy.
    6. And They’re Off!
      The race riots weren’t the first time things had kicked off in Notting Hill. In 1847 landowner John Whyte enclosed the slopes of Notting Hill with 7ft fences to create a racecourse. The fences blocked off the right of way that had been used by the pig farmers and their herds living in nearby by Notting Dale who kicked up a stink. And when 19th century pig farmers revolt, they really are revolting (even our jokes stink!). As a result, the racecourse closed down just 5 years later and the area was bought up for the development of grand homes.
