The main thoroughfare running northwest-southeast is Kilburn High Road, part of the modern A5 road, which forms the boundary between the boroughs of Brent and Camden and is in postcode NW6. A small section is located within the City of Westminster, with postcode W9. The road dates back to pre-Roman times and is part of the Roman road known as Watling Street. The town of Kilburn has its origins in a 12th-century priory on the banks of the Kilburn Brook. Kilburn today is a busy and multicultural London district. It has one of the capital's highest Irish populations, as well as a sizable Afro-Caribbean population. The area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London.
