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.

Post by Cassandra Green: Rudall Crescent, NW3

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.

Issue with Browsealoud software
Camden Council is one of thousands of organisations globally who use an accessibility tool called Browsealoud to enable blind and partially sighted people to access online information.

Browsealoud was taken offline on Sunday, as the company who produce the software learnt that it was being used to attempt to generate cryptocurrency.

This was an issue within the Browsealoud software, which is accessible via our site, rather than a hack on our council website itself. No customer data has been accessed or lost and Camden’s website continues to be secure. As soon as the software was taken down nationally it was no longer available via our website, but we still took steps to remove the links to the software from our site.

The company are keeping the software offline at present, and are carrying out

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.
