Map of Mapesbury Area

About MapRA

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.

MapRA works closely with Brent Council officers and our three local Councillors for the benefit of all our members. When necessary, we enlist the help of our MP, Greater London Council and MEP representatives, but our Association is non-political and aims to act in the interests of all local residents and support them with any problems.
