I am trying to find any information out about 3 Erskine Road. NW3. I have just come across an old identity card which was my Grandmothers, dated 1946 , this being where she then lived. If anyone can give me any information about this area then, or old photographs, that would be really good.

I lived at 2 Rudall Crescent until myself and my family moved out in 1999. I once met a lady in a art fair up the road who was selling old photos of the area and was very knowledgeable about the area history, collecting photos over the years. She told me that before the current houses were built, there was a large manor house , enclosed by a large area of land. She told me there had been a fire there. Im trying to piece together the story and find out what was on the land before the crescent was built. This website is very interesting.

Tackling air quality together
We all have a role to play in improving air quality in Camden, that’s why we’re asking you to help develop our Clean Air Action Plan.

During our Camden 2025 community conversations you told us that air quality is vitally important, with participants in particular asking that we work together to improve the air that we share.

With this in mind, we launched our Camden Clean Air Partnership in July, bringing together residents, local businesses and campaigners for a ‘design day’, exploring practical ideas for air quality improvement. Understanding that collaboration is key, suggestions for improvement included tougher restrictions on HGV emissions, taking action against wood burning and systems to support people into using public transport, to name just a few.

Now we’re open

Emery Walker’s Islamic collection opens to public in London
Objects, jewellery and art collected worldwide by the antiquarian and photographer on display for first timeThe printer, photographer and antiquarian Emery Walker loved beautifully made things and when in 1903 he moved into a small house overlooking the Thames at Hammersmith, now preserved as a museum, he filled every inch of it from cellar to attic with his modest treasures, some bought for pennies in bazaars and markets.His many friends, who included George Bernard Shaw and William Morris, laughed affectionately at his determination when he spotted a piece of craftsmanship. A photograph in the house shows Walker in a three-piece suit and hat in a square in Toledo in 1905, clutching his umbrella and raincoat, but also a large Islamic jug which still has pride of place in hi

If you’re a private tenant living in a rented shared property, a private landlord, or managing or letting agent, we want to hear from you.

We are reviewing our Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) additional licensing scheme, and we are keen to hear your views on what has worked well and what you think we can improve.

HMOs are shared homes, including house and flat shares, student homes, bedsits and some buildings converted into flats, which are occupied by three or more people who are not part of the same family. We introduced the additional licensing scheme which goes further than national mandatory licensing, in 2015 to help improve poor conditions in the private sector by requiring landlords to be licensed to rent out shared properties.

Belsize Park

The Manor of Belsize dates back to 1317, with the name is derived from French bel assis meaning 'well situated'.

Belsize Manor was built by Daniel O'Neill for his wife, the Countess of Chesterfield, in the 17th century. Urbanisation took place largely between 1852 and 1878, by which time it extended to Haverstock Hill. After World War I, the construction of blocks of flats began, and now a great many of the larger houses are also converted into flats.

Belsize Park underground station was opened on 22 June 1907 by the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway as an intermediate station on its line from Charing Cross to Hampstead. It is served by three lifts and there are 219 steps. The station was designed by Leslie Green and has his familiar facade of ox-blood faience with four round arched windows. It remained largely untouched until the late 1980s when the lifts were replaced and a new ticketing system installed.

It was during the 1930s that Belsize Park contributed most to the artistic and intellectual life of Hampstead. Artists associated with the Mall studios included Dame Barbara Hepworth from 1927 to 1939, her first husband John Skeaping and second Ben Nicholson from 1931 to 1939, and Henry Moore, who lived at no. 11A Parkhill Road from 1929 to 1940. They were members of Unit One, a group of artists and architects founded in 1933 by Paul Nash (1889-1946), who lived at no. 3 Eldon Grove from 1936 to 1939. Sir Herbert Read, the poet and art critic, who lived in 1934-5 at the Mall studios, which he described as a 'nest of gentle artists', published the group's manifesto, a theory of modern style.

Another centre was no. 37 Belsize Park Gardens, meeting place of MARS, an architectural group, and home of Jack Pritchard, who founded Isokon, a firm making modern furniture designed by people like Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer, refugees who brought a European dimension to the abstract design movement in the arts. Others included Piet Mondrian, the Dutch painter, who stayed with the Pritchards before moving to no. 60 Parkhill Road (1938-41). Pritchard also commissioned Wells Coates in 1934 to build the Isokon or Lawn Road flats, partly to house artistic refugees, on a site which he owned. Built in concrete in a functional style, the flats came to be recognized as 'a milestone in the introduction of the modern idiom into London'.

In World War II, a large underground air-raid shelter was built here and its entrance can still be seen near the tube station at Downside Crescent. The area on Haverstock Hill north of Belsize Park underground station up to Hampstead Town Hall and including part of a primary school near the Royal Free Hospital was heavily bombed.

Belsize Park these days is a lively area with many restaurants, pubs and cafés along Haverstock Hill and also England's Lane.

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.
