Kensal Green (All Souls) Cemetery W10 - Kensington and Chelsea

London's first metropolitan cemetery was designed by John William Griffith in 1833. The cemetery contains a large number of listed monuments and structures at risk, including the Anglican Chapel and North Colonnade. The Management Plan from 2004 needs revision and a Project Board, led by a project manager, is working to secure the future of the central Anglican Chapel. This would have a considerable impact on the overall use and management of the landscape. Recent conservation works to monuments are complete and there is progress on strategies for tree and vegetation management.
