This fine Traditional Deans Victorian awning fits perfectly into the setting of this old Victorian building in the Kensal Green area of London. The Deans Victorian awning, made in precisely the same way it would have been back in 1894, is recommended by many local Council Planning offices as the most suitable installation for buildings such as this of historical interest. The awning box of the Deans Victorian awning has been constructed from harvested hard wood, painted by hand with environmentally safe water based paint. Metal parts have been powder coated black by our in-house powder coating plant to give a traditional look with modern weather resisting properties. The valance has received the client branding with their message being carefully applied through the use of our bespoke RAGS® graphics process.

Paradise by way of Kensal Green is a reference to the famous Kensal Green cemetery wherein many notables are interned. The cemetery was immortalised in the lines of G. K. Chesterton’s poem “The Rolling English Road” from his book The Flying Inn: “For there is good news yet to hear and fine things to be seen; Before we go to Paradise by way of Kensal Green”. Among the residents who reside there are the memorable engineer and designer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Sir Neville Howse (1863–1930), the first Australian recipient of the Victoria Cross and the less noble John St. John Long a notorious Quack Doctor who claimed to have the cure for tuberculosis, and only just managed to avoid prison for manslaughter. Ironically he died, it is said, of tuberculosis in 1834, though some believe it was actually from falling off his horse!
