Hampstead Heath railway station has been part of the London Overground since 11 November 2007.

In the nineteenth century up to 100,000 people per day used the station at weekends and on public holidays as the Heath was a popular holiday destination for Londoners. The station was rebuilt, after Second World War bomb damage, and in the 1990s in conjunction with works to allow Eurostar trains to use the North London Line.

Supporting youth services voted top priority at Shout Out
Young people said preventing cuts to youth services was their top priority at Camden Shout Out, organised by Camden Youth Council and the Youth MP. More than 100 young people had their say on issues ranging from safety on the street and ‘hidden’ illnesses, such as mental health problems, to future educational and career paths. Improving communication with young people and Camden in 2025 were also hot topics of debate at the Shout Out event held at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London in Granary Square yesterday (Monday, 6 November). Young people who attended Shout Out voted on what the top priority for the Camden Youth MP and Camden Youth Council should be. Preventing cuts to youth services came out as the clear winner. The event was organised by Camden Youth Council and Camden’s Youth MP with the Council’s youth service. Shout Out also marked the beginning of the 2018 Camden Youth MP Election campaign, with young people invited to stand as candidates. Current Youth MP Esther Joy Boadu, who was joined at Shout Out by her two predecessors Jabeen Rizvi and Hannah Morris, said: “Being Camden’s Youth MP has been a great opportunity for me to represent young people at a local and national level.” Other guests included Councillor Nadia Shah, Cabinet Member for Safer Communities; Camden’s Leader of the Opposition, Councillor Claire-Louise Leyland; Kyro Brooks, Chief Executive of the Young Camden Foundation, who spoke about ‘getting ahead in life’; Martin Pratt, the Council’s Executive Director of Supporting People, and Dominic Clout, the independent chair of Camden Safeguarding Children Board, who is also a former Met Police Borough Commander.Find out more:To find out more about youth democracy and the Camden Youth MP Election visit camden.gov.uk/youthcouncil or follow @camdenyouthmp on TwitterTo find your local youth centre or find out more about other local youth services visit camden.gov.uk/youthservices

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.
