Maxilla Memorial & Healing Space
The Maxilla memorial and healing space, incorporating the ‘Wall of Truth’, is a space created by and for members of the community in response to the great suffering after the fire at Grenfell Tower on 14 June 2017.
Sitting underneath the Westway flyover and in direct line of site to nearby Grenfell Tower, the space has been a site of healing and memorial services since the days immediately after the tragedy. Today, the space incorporates community art, a Hope Garden and the Wall of Truth.
As custodians of this land on behalf of our community, Westway Trust is committed to ensuring the space is respected, safe and accessible for everyone in our community.
Please note that local residents have asked not to permit filming related to the Grenfell Tower fire on the Westway estate, including around the Wall of Truth, unless under very particular circumstances and where the project is community-led, for memorial and healing purposes.
