Lancaster West Estate History
Lancaster West Estate is home to over 1,000 households, making it one of the largest estates in London. Our neighbourhood boasts a diverse, friendly and colourful community which has been evolving since the 1970s. The estate was designed in 1967 as part of a major redevelopment scheme in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
John Boorman's 1970 film 'Leo the Last' was shot in the area, before it was redeveloped. Kidulthood (2006) and Adulthood (2008), written and directed by British filmmaker Noel Clarke, were partially filmed on the estate.
Lancaster West Estate Residents' Association
LWRA are an independent body whose sole purpose is to serve and protect the interests of residents on Lancaster West Estate. All members of the committee are volunteers and live on the estate. Our aim is to work closely with all our residents to effect lasting change and reflect the beauty of our community in our estate.
