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. Advice sessions on dealing with Islamophobia We have a partner, Tell Mama, supporting people who have experienced Islamophobia. Tell Mama are running two drop-in sessions on 17 October with support from our commuity safety service. If you need advice or support, please come along to one of the sessions – you don’t need to book: St Pancras Library, 5 Pancras Square N1C 4AG from 12 noon to 2pm Queen’s Crescent Library, 165 Queen’s Crescent, NW5 4HH from 3 to 5pm. Report a hate crime 1. If you see someone in immediate danger, call the police on 999. If someone is not in immediate danger, also call the non-emergency helpline 24 hours a day on 101. 2. Contact our community safety team on 020 7974 4444 or communitysafety@camden.gov.uk 3. If you’d feel more comfortable, you can contact one of our partners, who can offer you support.

Camden Town

Camden Town tube station is a major junction on the Northern Line and one of the busiest stations on the London Underground network. It is particularly busy at weekends with tourists visiting Camden Market and Camden High Street.

Camden is well-known for Camden Market which is a major tourist attraction, particularly busy at weekends, selling variety of fashion, antiques, lifestyle and bizarre goods; they (and the surrounding shops) are popular with young people, in particular those searching for alternative clothing.

It is an area popular with overseas students who come to Camden to learn English and find a job in one of the local bars or restaurants. The oldest established language school is Camden College of English, which is located at the Chalk Farm side of the market.

The Regent's Canal runs through the north end of Camden Town and is a popular walk in summer.

Camdem Town tube station began life as part of the original route of the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway (CCE&HR) (now part of the Northern Line). As the line here branched into two routes, to Hampstead and to Highgate, the design of the station was rather unusual, shaped like a V. The line to Hampstead (now the Edgware Branch) is under Chalk Farm Road; the line to Highgate (now the High Barnet branch) is under Kentish Town Road. With the narrowness of the roads above, and the necessity to keep directly beneath them to avoid having to pay compensation to landowners during construction, on both lines the northbound platform is directly above the southbound one.

At the apex of the V is a junction allowing northbound trains to take either of the branches north, and likewise allow the trains south from the branches to join the single southbound track. This resulted in four connecting tunnels. When the CCE&HR and City & South London Railway lines were joined together after the City & South London Line became part of London Underground, a short extension from the Euston terminus of the City & South London was built to connect with each of the two northerly branches. This added another four tunnels to the junction, making it the most complex junction on the network.

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.
