Lord Mansfield, Lord Southampton and Lord Lisburne were the local landowners and plans were drawn up for six streets radiating from Lismore Circus. Houses here were built by 1853.

From 1868 the Midland Railway ran trains from Bedford to its own terminus at St. Pancras with the railway tunnel running underneath the southern half of the Circus. And also in 1868, Haverstock Hill station opened and was situated in the southwest of the circus (partially closing in 1916 but only finally decomissioned in 1983).

In 1870 St Pancras Vestry took over the central area following a memorial that it should be laid out as a garden. It opened to the public in 1871, a circular garden surrounded by privet hedge with grass, shrubs and trees.

The area was devestated by bombing during the Second World War. On 15 October 1940, a bomb demolished the Lismore Circus bridge over the railway, blocking it.

The housing estate surrounding Lismore Circus was built in the 1960s and 70s. Frederick MacManus and Partners designed the estate. These two long parallel grey brick buildings were built between 1969 and 1972.

Local residents rallied around the idea of maintaining an area of the open space in Lismore Circus in the late 1990s. In June 1998 Michael Palin ceremonially planted a ‘Gospel Oak’ in the vicinity of what is now Lismore Circus Community Woods.

HS2: Council pushes HS2 Ltd to keep Adelaide Local Nature Reserve open to the public
Camden Council has successfully pushed HS2 Ltd to keep Adelaide Local Nature Reserve open to the public, following HS2 Ltd issuing a temporary possession notice that could have closed it for a significant period of time. In April, HS2 Ltd issued a temporary possession notice for Adelaide Local Nature Reserve to the Council that is due to take effect from early August. HS2 Ltd has indicated that it intends to take possession of the nature reserve for two years (although HS2 Ltd may extend possession), in order to create new wildlife habitats, move species from sites used for HS2 construction, and then monitor the works. These works are part of measures to reduce the impact of the railway scheme. We objected to HS2 Ltd’s original plans to completely close the nature reserve to the public during this time, which would also have had significant long-term impacts on the community groups that maintain the site for us, including the Adelaide Nature Reserve Association and the Adelaide and Belsize Green Gym. HS2 Ltd also planned to erect hoarding around the site, which would have blocked views into the nature reserve. Following negotiations led by the Council, HS2 Ltd has committed to now only closing the nature reserve when it needs the site to carry out works. This means there should be little impact on public opening hours, and community groups can continue to maintain the site. HS2 Ltd advised us that it expects to close the nature reserve for around a month during August 2017 to carry out the initial planned works, with further occasional closures for only a few days at a time for any additional works HS2 Ltd needs to carry out during the period it is in possession of the site. HS2 Ltd has also dropped its plans to hoard off the site. Instead, HS2 Ltd will carry out works to the existing wire mesh fence and install a new wire mesh fence at the Adelaide Road entrance, which will allow views into the nature reserve.

Gospel Oak

Gospel Oak is an inner suburb of north London below Hampstead Heath.

The name derives from an oak tree, under which parishioners gathered to hear an annual gospel reading when the area was still rural. Lords Mansfield, Southampton and Lisburne were the local landowners when development began in the mid-19th century. Plans were drawn up for elegant streets radiating from Lismore Circus but after two railway lines were extended across the area the first buildings were two- and three-storey cottages for "navvies and quarrelsome shoemakers." Later the neighbourhood became more respectable and solidly residential.

All Hallows Church by James Brooks is a notable late Victorian church. After World War II much of the original housing around Lismore Circus was demolished and a series of estates built for Camden Council. Today Gospel Oak is a socially mixed area with its share of inner-city problems but a very strong community spirit. Famous residents include Tony Blair?s former head of communications Alastair Campbell and his partner journalist Fiona Millar, ex-Python Michael Palin, and Britain’s top networker Carole Stone and her husband broadcaster Richard Lindley.

John Rocque Map of Hampstead (1762).
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 of Hampstead covers an area stretching from the edge in the northwest of present-day Dollis Hill to Islington in the southeast.
