"Factory Quarter" new apartments, Larden Road W3
Formerly the CAV factory, this large site between Larden Road and Warple Way is being turned into the "Factory Quarter" LinkExternal link to be mainly apartments with some commercial use.

CA Vandervell came to Acton before the first World War. In 1926 CAV was bought by Joseph Lucas, becoming CAV-Bosch in the 30's before reverting to CAV in 1939. In the 70's, the firm became Lucas CAV and, eventually, Prestolite after Lucas Industries was split up. CAV was the world leader in diesel technology.
