Campbell Road, or "The Bunk" - was known as the worst street in London.

No addresses have so far been added to Campbell Road, N4

Campbell Road had a bad reputation from the moment it was built in 1865, on land known as the St Pancras’ Seven Sisters Road Estate. It was a long street just to the west of Fonthill Road, off Seven Sisters. Building along the street was done piecemeal and took a long time. Over a period of years, the demand fell and poor people, unable to afford to buy or rent a whole house, started taking rooms in the properties.

In 1880 a lodging house was opened at 47 Campbell Road, licensed for 90 men. It was the first of many such establishments in the road and by 1890 Campbell Road had the largest number of doss house beds for any Islington street.

People were very poor, many of them with large families. With such over-crowded rooms, life was often lived in the street. Campbell Road was a slum so wretched that its inhabitants sold the glass from their windows, so unlawful that the police steered clear - career criminals lived there. It was so insular that the the children from the next street down would be chased out - there was also a fierce territorial rivalry between the top and bottom end.

Campbell Road residents were frightened to give their address as it often meant they wouldn’t be given a job at the numerous small factories in Islington.

In 1937 the name of the road was changed to Whadcoat Street in a vain attempt to dilute its bad reputation. Slum clearance started in 1952 finally putting an end to the street, and in its place was built a council estate - the Six Acre estate. All that now remains of the notorious Bunk is the name Whadcoat Street on a brick wall. Locals still talk about doing a Campbell Bunk or getting-away-with-it.

Camden’s students celebrate A-level results
Celebrations were today taking place across Camden, after students at the borough’s schools received their A-level results. Provisional figures show that the overall pass rate at grades A* to E in Camden is 98.1%, which is above the national average of 97.9%. This year’s figures mean that half of all Camden A-level entries were a grade higher than last year, which is a strong result for the borough’s schools. Councillor Angela Mason CBE, Cabinet Member for Children, Schools and Families, was at Haverstock School, in Chalk Farm, where she joined students and the school’s new headteacher, James Hadley, to celebrate their results. Among the top performing A-level students at Haverstock School were Mohammed Miah, who got two A*s and one A; Nadirah Miah, with two As and a B, as well as Deneice McIntosh and Saye Monnan, each of whom gained one A and two Bs in their A-levels. James Hadley, new headteacher at Haverstock, said: “We are delighted that our students’ hard work has been rewarded. With these fantastic qualifications, combined with the experience that they have gained from our award-winning Haverstock Career Network, they are fully equipped to be successful in the next stage of their lives.” Delighted Haverstock student Abdisamed Abdi, 18, is off to Brunel University in London to study law. He got three Bs in his A-levels, which were English literature, English language and economics. Abdisamed, who admitted he had a sleepless night before picking up his results, said he was thrilled to have got into his first choice university after getting three Bs in his A-levels. He said: “Brunel was my firm choice and I’ve wanted to go there for ages.” Cllr Mason later joined students at Camden School for Girls, where the percentage of A* and A grades was an amazing 48%, up seven per cent from last year. Several students from the school have places at Oxford and Cambridge universities this year. Among them is Esther Pigney, 18, who will be studying classics at Oxford University after gaining an A* in her Latin A-level and As in classical Greek, English literature and maths. Another top student at Camden School for Girls is Osman Umuayman, 18, whose family came to the UK as refugees from Somalia. She will be the first in her family to go to university and has a place to study medicine at Cambridge University’s Trinity College. Meanwhile at LaSWAP, which is the joint sixth form for four Camden secondary schools (Acland Burghley, William Ellis, Parliament Hill and La Sainte Union), top performing students included Jam Byam, 18, of Parliament Hill School and LaSWAP.Jam got A* in English literature, A* in film studies and an A in geography. She is going to King’s College London to study English literature. She said: “I decided not to look online to see if my university offer had been accepted and just headed to the school to get my results. But I had to get my close friend to open my envelope and read the results for me. It was such a relief and now I’m ecstatic.”Another LaSWAP student, Saskia Hern, gained one A*, two As and a B and is off to study biochemistry at Oxford University. Saskia said: “I’m really happy. I was worried I’d miss the A* to get to Oxford. My parents have promised me a takeaway when I get home!”Eva Dalmau, 18, who lives in Hampstead and attends LaSWAP Sixth Form, gained an A in history, an A in Spanish and a B in religious studies. She is going to Manchester University to study law.Eva said: “Having grown up in Spain I started school in England at 16 and initially I struggled to adapt to the English system, but I worked hard and I’m really relieved to get these results and know that my hard work paid off.”La Sainte Union’s headteacher, Maureen Williams, whose school is one of the four LaSWAP schools, said: “We are delighted with the results and improvements across LaSWAP, especially in the top grades and given the context of grade marks being altered and the more rigorous exams this year. Students and teachers had to work harder to achieve similar grades, so credit is due to all of those involved in this achievement.”Acland Burghley headteacher Nicholas John, whose school is also one of the four LaSWAP schools, said: “The collective experience and knowledge of the four LaSWAP schools means we can handle any changes to national specifications and still deliver excellent grades and progression rates. Our students are going to universities across the country, whether they are our highest performers or those who have secured university places despite the challenges they have faced.”Young people receiving their results in Camden today are reminded that, in addition to higher education options they may be considering, apprenticeship positions offer opportunities to earn while you learn, get a foot on the career ladder, and some apprentice posts can also lead to a degree.

Finsbury Park

Finsbury Park is an area in north London which grew up around an important railway interchange near the borders of the London Boroughs of Islington, Haringey and Hackney.

Finsbury Park is not to be confused with [Finsbury">Finsbury] which is 5.3 km further south in the London Borough of Islington.

The area is centred on Finsbury Park station, a major bus, rail and tube interchange near the southern end of the public park of the same name.

The surrounding area has a cosmopolitan feel, as reflected by the wide variety of shops and establishments on Seven Sisters Road, Blackstock Road and Stroud Green Road. The North London Central Mosque (formerly the Finsbury Park Mosque), which drew attention for extremist activity before a change in leadership in 2003, is located here. Arsenal Football Club’s Emirates Stadium is nearby.

Finsbury Park station first opened on 1 July 1861 and was originally named Seven Sisters Road (Holloway). It is on the route of the East Coast Main Line from King’s Cross to the north of England and Scotland. The southern section of this was built in stages during the 1840s and early 1850s by the Great Northern Railway (GNR). Tracks were first laid through Finsbury Park in 1850 to the GNR’s temporary terminus at Maiden Lane just north of the permanent terminus at King’s Cross (which opened in 1852).

Soon after the first station opened, the Edgware, Highgate and London Railway (EH&LR) began construction of a line from Finsbury Park to Edgware. The GNR took over the EH&LR shortly before its opening on 22 August 1867. The station was given its current name Finsbury Park on 15 November 1869.

The Great Northern & City Railway (GN&CR) was an underground railway planned to provide a tunnel link between Finsbury Park and Moorgate in the City of London as an alternative London terminus for GNR trains. The tunnels were constructed with a large diameter to accommodate this service but a dispute between the two companies prevented the GN&CR connecting its tunnels to the GNR platforms. The GN&CR tunnels, instead, terminated beneath the main line station without a connection to the surface and the line operated as a shuttle between Finsbury Park and Moorgate. This line opened on 14 February 1904.

The Great Northern, Piccadilly and Brompton Railway (GNP&BR) (now London Underground’s Piccadilly line) opened on 15 December 1906 between Finsbury Park and Hammersmith in west London. The tube railway originated as the Great Northern and Strand Railway (GN&SR) in 1897 and was initially supported by the GNR as a means of relieving congestion on its main line into King’s Cross by constructing a tube line under the GNR’s tracks from Alexandra Palace to King’s Cross and then to the Strand. The GN&SR was taken over in 1901 by a consortium led by Charles Yerkes before any work had been carried out and the section north of Finsbury Park was cancelled. The GN&SR was merged with the Brompton and Piccadilly Circus Railway to form the GNP&BR. It was constructed with the smaller-diameter tube tunnels common to other underground railways being constructed in London at that time. Its platforms were constructed by the GNR parallel with the GN&CR’s platforms beneath the main line station. The Piccadilly Line was later extended northwards.

London Underground had for many years been planning a new route across central London to relieve pressure on the central sections of the Piccadilly and Northern lines. In the early 1960s the plans were consolidated into a single plan for the Victoria line. The route of the new line was designed to provide the maximum number of interchanges with other Underground and British Rail lines as possible, and Finsbury Park was an ideal candidate for this. The first section of the Victoria line, including Finsbury Park, opened between Walthamstow Central and Highbury & Islington on 1 September 1968.

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.

It can be used where it is unknown whether any enhancements have been made, as well as when the enhancements are clear but insufficient. For usage, see Commons:When to use the PD-scan tag.
