In 2006, the canalside area at Camden Lock was renovated using Ketley patterned pavers.  Areas of diamond chequer pavers were separated from areas of 2 panel pavers by Ketley tactile ribbed pavers maintaining the traditional appearance of this canalside setting.

In 2018 Ketley's Brown brindle bricks and Staffordshire blue diamond chequer pavers were specified by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris in a scheme of new builds and refurbishments at Hawley Wharf in the heart of Camden Town.  This project was shortlisted for both Urban Redevelopment and Craftmanship at the 2019 Brick Awards.

Ketley bricks and pavers have been used in canalside settings in both industrial and urban developments since Victorian times and their traditional Staffordshire colours and patterns perfectly suited the context of this heritage site.
