London Euston is the southern terminus of the West Coast Main Line - serving Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow.

Euston was the first inter-city railway station in London. It opened on 20 July 1837 as the terminus of the London and Birmingham Railway.

The site was selected in the early 1830s by George and Robert Stephenson, engineers of the London and Birmingham Railway. The area was then mostly farmland at the edge of the expanding city of London. The station was named after Euston Hall in Suffolk, the ancestral home of the Dukes of Grafton, who were the main landowners in the area.

Objections to the station by local farmers meant that, when the Act authorising construction of the line was passed in 1833, the terminus was relocated to Chalk Farm. However, these objections were overcome, and in 1835 an Act authorising construction of the station at its originally planned site was passed, and construction went ahead.

The original station was built by William Cubitt. It was designed by the classically trained architect Philip Hardwick and initially it had only two platforms, one for departures and one for arrivals. Also designed by Hardwick was a 72 foot-high Doric propylaeum, the largest ever built, erected at the entrance as a portico and which became known as the Euston Arch.

The station grew rapidly over the following years as traffic increased. It was greatly expanded in the 1840s, with the opening in 1849 of the spectacular Great Hall, designed by Hardwick's son Philip Charles Hardwick in classical style.

In the early 1960s it was decided that a larger station was required. Because of the restricted layout of track and tunnels at the northern end, enlargement could be accomplished only by expanding southwards over the area occupied by the Great Hall and the Arch. Amid much public outcry, the station building including the Arch was demolished in 1961-2 and replaced by a new building. Its opening in 1968 followed the electrification of the West Coast Main Line.

A few remnants of the older station remain: two Portland stone entrance lodges and a war memorial. A statue of Robert Stephenson by Carlo Marochetti, previously in the old ticket hall, stands in the forecourt.

On 12 May 1907 the City and South London Railway (C&SLR, now the Bank branch of the Northern Line) opened a station at Euston as the terminus of a new extension from its existing station at Angel.

Updated 22:07 - Evacuation of Taplow block - Leader statement
22:07 UPDATE: We are evacuating residents from all five blocks, starting immediately. If you have friends or family you can stay with tonight please do so. If you do arrange to do this but need longer term accommodation please come to Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre tomorrow and we will help you find accommodation at no cost To ensure your safety we are door knocking the blocks one at a time. We are doing that in the following order: 1. Taplow 2. Burnham 3. Bray 4. Blashford 5. Dorney You will be able to get back into your block over the weekend to collect more of your possessions, however this will be under escort from the London Fire Brigade. In the meantime we recommend you pack a bag with enough items to last 2-4 weeks. 21:05 UPDATE : As a result of on-going checks the decision has been taken to decant residents from all five tower blocks at the Chalcots estate. We have council staff on site providing information and guidance to residents who are being provided with temporary accommodation. Where residents can stay with family and friends we are encouraging them to do this. But if this isn't possible we are providing temporary accommodation. Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, said: “Camden Council is absolutely determined to ensure that our residents are safe and we have promised them that we will work with them, continue to act swiftly and be open and transparent. “Last night the Chief Executive and I led a public meeting to listen to the concerns held by residents of the Chalcots estate. Upon hearing from residents we immediately instructed a joint fire inspection with the London Fire Brigade. “Today the London Fire Brigade completed a joint inspection of the blocks with Camden Council technical experts. Together we decided that the Taplow block needs to be temporarily decanted while we undertake urgent fire safety works so that residents can be fully assured of their safety. This means that we need to move residents from their homes and into temporary accommodation. “We anticipate that these works will be completed within three to four weeks. We realise that this is hugely distressing for everyone affected and we will be doing all we can, alongside the London Fire Brigade and other authorities, to support our residents at this difficult time. The Grenfell fire changes everything – we need to do everything we can to keep residents safe. “You will appreciate that this is an emerging situation and we will be providing regular updates.” Follow @camdentalking and camden.gov.uk/news

Have your say on Euston
The Council has developed principles for a plan to guide development around and above Euston station, and we want to know what you think. Euston station is changing, with HS2 Ltd preparing for construction, and Network Rail, Crossrail 2 and Transport for London also thinking about how to design the station. A fully redeveloped station would maximise opportunities for new homes, jobs, open space and routes through and around the station. We are preparing a plan for development in the Euston station and tracks area with the Greater London Authority and Transport for London, which will both inform, and be informed by, emerging designs for the stations at Euston. Get involved We have prepared some principles to guide the plan, and want feedback on these from residents, community groups, voluntary organisations, businesses and anyone who uses the station. The overarching principle is to design Euston as a new piece of city with a world-class station, and a mix of homes (including genuinely affordable housing), economic uses, open space and cultural facilities, which knits into and reconnects existing communities and areas. The key principles that we think help to achieve this include: Best use of space An outward looking-station, fostering stronger relationships with nearby communities and places Respecting the history of Euston Designing for the future Boosting the economy Quality open space A network of healthy streets to link into the surrounding area. Read more about the principles and give us your views by 5pm on Monday 3 July. We will use your feedback to refine the principles and help shape a draft planning brief for the Euston station area, which we will consult on next year. Drop-in events You can also come along to a drop-in event to learn more and give comments: Tuesday 13 June 12.30 to 7.30pm St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre (Francis Crick Institute) 2 Ossulston Street, NW1 1DF Wednesday 14 June 9.30am to 12.30pm Ampthill Square Tenants Hall, Barnby Street (opposite Stoutbeck), NW1 2RS Thursday 15 June 5.45 to 8.15pm HPod, Cumberland Market, Regent's Park Estate, NW1 3RH Tuesday 20 June 9am to 12 noon Surma Community Centre, 1 Robert Street, London, NW1 3JU Find out more Visit our Euston Area Plan website Sign up for updates on planning in Euston Visit our HS2 webpages.

Grenfell Tower fire reaction
Commenting on Camden Council's latest reaction to the Grenfell Tower fire in west London, Cllr Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, said: “Our thoughts remain with the victims of the tragic events at Grenfell Tower and we have offered our support to Kensington & Chelsea. In the immediate aftermath of the tragic fire at Grenfell, Camden's housing team initiated additional tower block inspections and a review of fire safety. We are ready to fully support any national investigation into materials, building standards and safety regulations. It's vital for all of London's residents who live in high-rise buildings, that we learn from investigations into what caused and exacerbated the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower. “Whilst the arrangement of the cladding and insulation used on Camden Council's buildings differs* from that at Grenfell, and a fire in one of our clad buildings in 2012 was contained, it is still understandable that this week's tragedy, and the speculation about its cause, has worried people in other high-rise buildings. “We want to do as much as we can to reassure those residents, which is why we immediately initiated extra property inspections. These include checks of exterior cladding, and an overall review of the fire safety of our buildings. This is in addition to the ongoing programme of Fire Risk Assessments that all housing blocks on our estates are subject to. "Camden Council believes in public housing and we invest in it. We are determined to continue to ensure that our existing housing and our new developments are not only safe, but of high quality. We believe that local authorities are best at delivering solutions at a local level and this is our message to the Government. “We value our relationship with our residents and the Council has met with residents' associations and written to residents who live in our tower blocks to let them know we are carrying out these checks. This engagement work will continue and we'll do everything we can to keep concerned residents informed as our safety review progresses. “The council also continues to work closely with our local MPs and key partners and with the London Fire Brigade to ensure that fire safety procedures continue to meet the latest advice and guidance for all properties. We stand ready to respond to any changes to fire safety advice following investigations into this tragic fire.” *The design of the Camden cladding differs, using a vertically fixed panel system, rather than the horizontally fixed cassette system used at Grenfell. Previous statement made by Cllr Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, on June 14: “Our deepest sympathies go out to all those involved and affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower in west London, and particularly to the families and friends of those who have lost their lives in this tragedy. London's emergency services have done their utmost to tackle an incredibly challenging situation and I want to thank them for their dedicated and brave actions. “We are on standby to provide support, such as temporary housing, to Kensington and Chelsea Council and are liaising with the Royal Free Hospital to ensure casualties have assistance in place when they are ready to leave hospital. “Anyone who has concerns about friends or relatives at Grenfell Tower should contact the Police emergency telephone number on: 0800 0961 233. “If you would like to donate clothes, blankets etc. to support the victims there is a collection at NW5 Project, The Hut, Islip St until 6pm today. The Kensington and Chelsea Foundation have also set up a 'Grenfell Tower Appeal' for donations at www.thekandcfoundation.com/donate." Simon Tuhill, Camden Borough Commander at London Fire Brigade: “The London Fire Brigade have been responding to the major fire at Grenfell Tower in Kensington. “I want to reassure Camden residents that we remain on standby to keep them safe. In the event of a fire, please ring 999 as normal – we are here and ready to respond.” Cllr Gould added: “Camden Council has robust fire policies and procedures in place for our properties. Our Housing and Property Officers work closely with the London Fire Brigade and our partners to ensure they reflect the latest fire safety guidance." On Wednesday (14th) afternoon, the Leader and Councillor Pat Callaghan, Cabinet Member for Housing wrote to Camden District Management Committees and Tenant and Resident Associations to confirm additional fire safety checks will be made on council housing blocks.

The Underground Map

The Underground Map is a website dedicated to some of the more obscure pieces of London Town (as well as some of the more well-known places).

The Underground Map project is creating a decade-by-decade series of historical maps of the area which lies within London's M25 ring.

From the 1800s until the 1950s, you can see how London grew from a city which only reached as far as Park Lane into the post war megapolis we know today.

John Rocque Map of London (1762) FREE DOWNLOAD
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
