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.

Camden Road

Camden Road is one of the few railway stations in England in which there is a police station.

The first Camden Road (North London Railway) station was opened in 1850 and was situated on the east side of what is now St. Pancras Way. It was renamed Camden Town (NLR) on 1 July 1870 but was closed on 5 December 1870 when it was replaced by the second station situated a short distance to the west.

The present Camden Road station is the second station of this name (the first, on the North London Railway lasted from 1850-1870) and is located at the corner of Royal College Street and Camden Road. Designed by Edwin Henry Horne and opened as "Camden Town" by the North London Railway on 5 December 1870, it was renamed "Camden Road" on 25 September 1950 to avoid confusion with the London Underground Northern line Camden Town which had opened in 1907. Thus, between 1907 and 1950, there were two stations called ’Camden Town’.

In addition to the frequent local passenger service, the station is a busy location for freight traffic due to its proximity to the junctions linking the North London Line to both the West Coast Main Line at Camden Junction (via the now closed station at Primrose Hill) and the East Coast Main Line at Copenhagen Junction. The former is particularly well used by container trains from the deep water ports at Felixstowe & Tilbury to various terminals in the Midlands & North West of England; it also carried a passenger service (between Watford Junction and Broad Street/Liverpool Street) until 1992.

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.
