The Mapesbury estate lies between Willesden Lane and Cricklewood Broadway / Shoot-up Hill, between Kilburn station and around Willesden Green underground station (see map). MapRA covers the estate area plus, northwards to Riffel Road, and southwest over the railway line to Willesden Lane.
Mapesbury is an outstanding example of a Edwardian housing development strongly influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement. It's conveniently located, with excellent transport links on the Jubilee line to the West End, South Bank & the City and is within easy reach of some of Londonís best amenities.
Background. MapRA started in the early 70s initially as a campaign group against traffic cutting through the area. It has grown to around 800 households covering a range of community social and campaign issues.
Conservation. In 1982 ten roads in Mapesbury were designated a Conservation area. The roads are: Anson (Broadway to Chichele Road),
Dartmouth, Dawlish, Exeter, Keyes, Hoveden, Lydford & Mapesbury (up to railway),
Teignmouth, Walm Lane (even side from the station to Broadway) Although
some Mapesbury properties are not included, they benefit
substantially from bordering the area.
Membership of MapRA costs £5 per calendar year. (£2 concession) Members are however encouraged to pay for five years membership.
