The Benevolent Institution for the Relief of Aged and Infirm Journeymen was founded on 10 February 1837.

The work originated with a Mr Stulz, the President of the Society, who, at one of the anniversary meetings, announced to the members that he would present them with a piece of land as a site for an asylum.

Accordingly, upon the sale of the Southampton estate, he made the purchase; and, at his sole cost and charge, erected the chapel, and six of the adjoining houses.

The Asylum was built in the old English style, from the design of Mr. T. Meyer. The first stone was laid by the Marquis of Salisbury, on the 31 May 1842; and the chapel was consecrated by the Bishop of London, on the 24 June. The chapel was endowed by Mr Stulz; and the communion-plate, books, altar-screen, and furniture of the chapel presented by different master members of the institution.

The asylum consisted of the chapel and ten houses; the dwelling at the south end being appropriated for the chaplain. Each house consisted of eight rooms, two being allotted to each pensioner. As reported in 1843, there were thirty-six male pensioners and their wives in the asylum. In addition to the apartments, each pensioner received 8 shillings a week plus coal.

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.

Camden groups helping to improve local air quality
As part of Camden Council’s drive to improve air quality in the borough, it provided free air quality monitoring equipment to residents and community groups to help them understand air pollution in their area.

No fewer than 23 individuals and community groups monitored 47 separate sites across Camden between July 2017 and March 2018. The results, shared with project participants today, give a general insight into the state of local air. As expected, the results indicate higher concentrations of nitrogen dioxide in the central and southern parts of the borough.

You can view the data on our Open Data air quality monitoring page

Air pollution has a significant impact on public health and accounts for around 9,400 premature deaths in London each year, affecting the hea

Fun for all ages at Agar Grove
Starting the summer holidays on the perfect note, families from Agar Grove shared in food, fun and friendship, making the most of the sunshine as a community.

With World Cup fever still gripping the estate, residents took part in an inflatable penalty shootout, bringing the game home to Agar Grove – even if Russia 2018 wasn’t to be. Children also got the chance to get messy, painting murals and getting creative with crafts between BBQs and ice cream.

The fun day, organised in collaboration with contractors Hill, celebrates the completion of phase 1a of the Agar Grove Estate redevelopment.

Agar Grove is the largest project in Camden’s Community Investment Programme, delivering 216 council homes and 37 at affordable Camden Living Rents. At the event, residents were able to see picture

Chalk Farm

Chalk Farm has nothing to do with chalk at all. Though there once was a farm...

Chalk Farm's name, deceptively rural, derives from the name of the village on its site, Chalcot. These days it absorbs the spread from Camden Town and has many lively pubs, live music venues, and restaurants. Within London it is best known as the site of The Roundhouse, a former circular railway engine shed which was subsequently converted for arts and performance use.

Chalk Farm station was opened on 22 June 1907 by the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway (CCE&HR). Trains originally operated between Golders Green and Charing Cross tube station, with extensions to Edgware and Kennington in 1923 and 1926, respectively.

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.
