Camden Town station roundel

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.

Grenfell fire public inquiry to consider cause and council response
As PM promises social questions will not be left unanswered, campaigners welcome widening of scope but still have concernsThe public inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire will examine the actions of Kensington and Chelsea council but will not deal with broader questions of social housing policy, the government has said. No 10 said the decision not to include social housing policy in the terms of reference, published on Tuesday, was taken by the inquiry chair, Sir Martin Moore-Bick, but added that the prime minister was determined that the questions relating to the issue would not be seen as a lower priority. This government has created a climate of hostility towards all immigrantsDeeply unsatisfactory for PM to set Grenfell Inquiry terms of ref to exclude housing policy failings - closing off criticism of govt policy https://t.co/7oJabxLscU Continue reading...

Council update on actions to further raise safety standards at the Chalcots
As part of Camden Council’s ongoing work to deliver the highest safety standards throughout the Chalcots Estate, further fire safety assessments have been taking place this week. Using the standards advised by the London Fire Brigade for fire risk assessment, Camden Council appointed a private company, called Frankham Risk Management Services, to carry out enhanced fire risk assessments. Residents have today been written to, updating them that Frankham have been on site all week, not only inspecting the communal areas, but also reviewing a number of residents’ flats, including assessing the window frames. The letter from Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, and Pat Callaghan, Cabinet member for Housing and Deputy Leader, tells that “these inspections go above and beyond usual fire safety inspections, and we have asked for them to be done because we want you to be assured about the safety of your home.” Residents are reminded that the council carried out the works that the London Fire Brigade said needed to be done in communal areas in order to ensure they could return to their home, but that there is an ongoing programme of improvements works to deliver even higher standards within the building, including their flats. This programme includes the Frankham checks and any additional works that are identified by the inspections will be acted upon and included in the ongoing programme, which includes fitting new flat entrance doors and the removal of the existing cladding. Residents are also given details of upcoming drop-in sessions and ways of contacting the council, should they have questions about the ongoing works. The full letter reads as follows: Friday 11 August 2017 Update on continuing fire safety works in your block Dear Resident We carried out the works that the London Fire Brigade said needed to be done in communal areas in order to ensure you could return to your home. The London Fire Brigade last week returned to the estate and confirmed the works done are of an acceptable standard. We want to assure you that checks and works in the buildings are continuing and that we will not be finished until we have the highest safety standards throughout, including inside your flat. Using the standards advised by the London Fire Brigade for fire risk assessment, we have hired a private company called Frankham Risk Management Services, who are also accredited by the BAFE (British Approvals for Fire Equipment), which independently acknowledges their competency to provide fire protection services. Frankham have been on site all week, carrying out enhanced fire risk assessments, not only inspecting the communal areas, but also reviewing a number of residents’ flats, including assessing the window frames. Any additional works that are identified by Frankham’s inspections will be acted upon and included in our ongoing programme of improvement works, which includes fitting new flat entrance doors and the removal of the existing cladding. As with previous fire risk assessments, we will make sure that the Frankham reports are openly available for you to view on our website. These inspections go above and beyond usual fire safety inspections, and we have asked for them to be done because we want you to be assured about the safety of your home. That’s why we have also carried out Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) of white goods and fitted fire blankets in every flat, and why fire wardens remain on site. We want to remind you that we are recruiting a Director of Resident Safety and that we will undertake an independent review into the circumstances that required the evacuation of the blocks. We will work side by side with you to carry out that review. We, like you, want to ensure that the Council and national building and fire regulations are appropriately scrutinised regarding how this happened, and how we ensure it never happens again. Resident drop-in sessions The safety of residents is our top priority and we know some residents have questions about the works that have been undertaken or are due to take place, including the replacement of the outer cladding panels. The Council will be running drop-in information sessions for Chalcots residents to address any concerns and answer your questions. The first drop-in session will take place on Wednesday 16 August from 10am to 12pm outside Bray block. We will also have staff available at our annual summer resident event to be held on Wednesday 23 August from 1pm to 5pm at The Open Space on Winchester Road in Swiss Cottage. The London Fire Brigade will be at the event to speak to you about how you can improve fire safety in your home, and there will be a range of events and activities for everyone – we hope that you are able to join us. New fire door installation The drop-in session is a good opportunity for you to find out more about the new doors and ask any questions. We hope to begin installing these new doors in blocks in early September. We will be contacting you to make an appointment to replace your door in the next few weeks, we aim to minimise disruption and arrange a time that is suitable for you. We will continue to provide you with regular updates about the work going on now and in the future, in and around your building. In the meantime, if you have any issues or concerns about the work that has been done in your building, to your front door, or in your flat please report this to our Chalcots Estate team on 0207 974 4444 (extension 7). This team can contact our contractors on site and get someone to look at your issue as quickly as possible. Yours sincerely, Georgia Gould Leader of Camden Council Pat Callaghan Cabinet Member for Housing and Deputy Leader

Building decent homes with the support of local people would make the country richer, cut inequality and give millions a better lifeA rapidly growing international movement, led mainly by young people but uniting all ages, is demanding urgent action from governments to address the housing crisis in the UK and other countries such as Sweden and the US. We unite under the banner Yes In My Back Yard: yes to more decent, truly affordable housing, with the support of local people, in ways that make places more welcoming and better for everyone. We are the opposite of nimby.The first detailed yimby call for action from the current UK government comes today in a paper published for the London yimby campaign by the Adam Smith Institute. We estimate that over time GDP could be raised by roughly 30% permanently through a sustained period of building many more decent homes, particularly near the best places for job and training opportunities, by radical devolution to small local communities.

The Underground Map

The Underground Map is a website dedicated to some of the more obscure pieces of London Town (as well as some of the more well-known places).

The Underground Map project is creating a decade-by-decade series of historical maps of the area which lies within London's M25 ring.

From the 1800s until the 1950s, you can see how London grew from a city which only reached as far as Park Lane into the post war megapolis we know today.

Find the streets of London by clicking STREETS above or explore the maps by clicking MAP.

The Underground Map works best if you log in using Facebook.

PHOTOS OF THE AREA
Camden Town (1920):   Camden Town was named after Charles Pratt, the first Earl Camden, who started its development in 1791. It began life as little more than a handful of buildings beside a main road. Camden Town’s expansion as a major centre came with the opening of the Regent’s Canal to traffic in 1820

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.
