Children from a school in Kilburn have planted a time capsule in a new development in Queen’s Park which will stay buried until 2041.
Drawings and messages from pupils at Carlton Vale Primary School depicting what they imagined South Kilburn to look like in 25 years time and placed them in the capsule.
It will be opened after the completion of a multi-million redevelopment of the area which includes 2,400 new homes.
The regeneration will also deliver new improved open spaces such as Woodhouse Urban Park, new shops, new health facilities and a new school.
The capsule was planted in the Queens Park Place development off Albert Road, which will deliver 144 new homes of which 28 will be affordable, along with basement parking, a brand new Marks & Spencer, and associated landscaping.

Cllr Margaret McLennan, Brent Council’s lead member for housing and development, said: “It was great to see the children so engaged and excited about the transformational changes that are happening all around them.
“The aim of the regeneration programme is to make the area a better place to live and I hope that in twenty five years time we will see that has happened.”
