Help us rid Camden of hate crime
Help us rid Camden of hate crime 14 to 21 October is National Hate Crime Awareness Week In Camden, we are proud of our sense of community and are committed to tackling all forms of hate crime. Camden is no place for hate. A hate crime is behaviour is based on someone’s prejudice towards a person because of their race, religion, sexual orientation or disability or because they are transgender. Hate crime includes name-calling, threats and intimidation, whether out on the street or online. It also includes physical violence. No-one should be a victim of hate crime because of who they are. We’re determined to stop hate crime in Camden, so let’s work together to tackle it. If you, or anyone you know, has been called names, been bullied or had anything happen to them that you think may be because of race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or because they are transgender, we encourage you to report this as a hate crime. Hate crime in the borough increased by 4.8% between 2015/16 and 2016/17, from 2,433 to 2,550 cases. Racist and religious hate crime went up by 11.9% from 616 to 689 cases and disability hate crime went up by 52.9% from 17 to 26 cases. Don’t suffer in silence We’re working with a range of partners to make sure our message – that hate crime won’t be tolerated – reaches everyone in the borough. We are proud of how diverse the people who choose to live, work, study in and visit Camden are. We want people to be able to go about their lives in Camden confidently. As a council we work with our communities to reassure and support them. Importantly, we work in partnership with the police and local organisations to tackle any instances of hate crime promptly. You might not feel like reporting a hate crime straight away, but please do report it when you can. You can make a real difference and be able to help prevent other people from being treated the same way. Be part of our fight against hate crime. Want advice about dealing with hate crime? Contact one of our partners for support. Visit camden.gov.uk/hatecrime for full details of the organisations we work with.

Kensington (Olympia)

Kensington (Olympia) station in West London is managed and served by London Overground and also served by London Underground.

On the Underground it is the terminus of a short District Line branch, built as part of the Middle Circle, from Earl's Court; on the main-line railway it is on the West London Line from Clapham Junction to Willesden Junction, by which many trains bypass Central London.

A station was opened by the West London Railway as its southern terminus on 27 May 1844 as Kensington, just south of Hammersmith Road; it closed at the end of November 1844 due to the losses made. A scant and erratic goods service continued, the line re-opened to passengers with a new station called Addison Road on 2 June 1862, to the north of Hammersmith Road. Great Western Railway trains started serving the station in 1863, with London & North Western Railway trains arriving in 1872. A link to the Hammersmith & City Railway enabled the Middle Circle service to operate via Paddington to the north and South Kensington to the south. From 1869, the London & South Western Railway operated trains from Richmond to London Waterloo via Addison Road, until their branch via Shepherd's Bush closed in 1916. By 1907 the Middle Circle had been replaced by four Hammersmith & City line trains an hour.

The station appears on the first 'London Underground' map in 1908 with Metropolitan and District Railway services.

In 1940, Addison Road and the link to the Metropolitan line at Latimer Road closed along with the other West London Line stations, In 1946 it was renamed Kensington (Olympia) and became the northern terminus of a peak-hour shuttle service to Clapham Junction, which was mainly for workers at the Post Office Savings Bank (later National Savings Bank) in nearby Blythe Road. There was also a District line shuttle to Earl's Court.

The current District line bay platform opened in 1958, but the 1872 connection between the District and the main line south of the station was not finally lifted until 1992.

For many years the passenger service was only a few peak-hour main-line trains to and from Clapham Junction, with Underground trains only during exhibition times. The West London Line has always been a main freight route from north of London to the south-east of England.

Between 1979 and 2008 the Clapham Junction service was supplemented by a Cross Country route from Brighton to Birmingham New Street extending to Derby, Edinburgh Waverley, Glasgow Central, Liverpool Lime Street and Manchester Piccadilly. Cross Country services also called at Kensington Olympia on services from the north to Eastbourne, Folkestone Central and Ramsgate at various times.

There were two bay platforms on the south-eastern side mainly used by services from Clapham Junction. In the early 1990s these were filled in and the southbound platform loop closed, with a shorter platform on the sothbound main line built over the loop - longer southbound trains now cross to the northbound loop to stop. The land behind the southbound platform was sold for redevelopment.

There were an Express Dairies creamery and milk bottling plant close to the station served by milk trains from the Great Western Railway from Old Oak Common to a siding adjacent to the station.

In the event of nuclear war seeming imminent, the station was the designated London muster point for staff in transit to the Central Government War Headquarters (Codenamed Burlington).

In 1994, a full passenger service between Willesden Junction and Clapham Junction was reinstated after a gap of 54 years.
