Boundary wall to Kensal Green Cemetery, Harrow Road W10 - Kensington and Chelsea

High brick boundary wall to Harrow Road, a 100 metre section of which collapsed in 2006. Further bays were subsequently reduced in height due to safety concerns. Historic England awarded a grant towards the first phase of rebuilding the collapsed section which involves piling, casting a ground beam and rebuilding the wall as original. Repair works have been completed to five bays, with works to two more planned for 2018. However, considerable further funding is required to complete necessary works to the entire wall.
