Queen’s Crescent Market is one of London’s oldest street markets, and is still held every Thursday and Saturday.

The market sells food, discounted clothing and a wide variety of household products. It has capacity for more than 90 stalls.

Many traders run stalls that have been passed from generation to generation. This is in contrast to the nearby and considerably more famous Camden markets, which primarily attract tourists and those from other parts of London (Inverness Street Market was a traditional produce market in Camden Town for a century, but in 2013 the last produce stall closed, leaving only tourist stalls like the other Camden markets). Aesthetically Queen’s Crescent market is a mixture, with pretty plain white houses sitting side by side with large council estates, some of which sit in beautifully landscaped grounds.

From the archive, 21 July 1982: IRA terror bombs kill eight soldiers in London parks
21 July 1982: Two explosions bring carnage to London’s Hyde Park and Regent’s ParkThe Provisional IRA brought scenes of horror and carnage back to the streets of London yesterday with two bombs that left two cavalrymen dead in Hyde Park and killed six bandsmen from the Royal Green Jackets in Regents Park. At least 51 people, many of the civilians, were taken to hospital, some with serious injuries. The bombs exploded within two hours of each other. The first, made with between 5 and 10Ib of commercial explosives and packed with four and six inch nails, went off at 10.43 am ripping through a troop of 16 soldiers from the Blues and Royals as they left the Knightsbridge Barracks of the Household Cavalry for the daily changing of the guard in Whitehall.

Chalk Farm

Chalk Farm has nothing to do with chalk at all. Though there once was a farm...

Chalk Farm's name, deceptively rural, derives from the name of the village on its site, Chalcot. These days it absorbs the spread from Camden Town and has many lively pubs, live music venues, and restaurants. Within London it is best known as the site of The Roundhouse, a former circular railway engine shed which was subsequently converted for arts and performance use.

Chalk Farm station was opened on 22 June 1907 by the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway (CCE&HR). Trains originally operated between Golders Green and Charing Cross tube station, with extensions to Edgware and Kennington in 1923 and 1926, respectively.

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.
