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.

Update 10:00 Evacuation of Chalcots Estate - Leader statement
LATEST 10:00 UPDATE “Hundreds of Camden Council employees, led by myself and the Chief Executive, worked right through the night to support residents from around 650 homes into alternative accommodation. This operation remains unprecedented in scale for Camden. “We have been further supported in this process by police and fire officers, the British Red Cross, and other voluntary partners. I thank all those who have played a part so far. “On the estate overnight we swiftly began work to address fire safety issues that the London Fire Brigade had identified and which led the Brigade to say late on Friday that residents should not remain in the buildings until these issues are resolved. “The concerted effort to carry out fire safety work overnight at the estate resulted in the fire service being satisfied that one of the blocks, Blashford (containing around 70 homes), did not need to be evacuated. “Two rest centres are housing a large number of residents, who have been provided with somewhere to sleep, food, drink and support. Many others were provided with hotel accommodation. “Social workers have worked to support vulnerable residents, and specialist care accommodation is available for those who need it. “Having to evacuate people from their homes is always going to be distressing for those residents, especially when we have to do it at such short notice. I know some residents are angry and upset, but I want to be very clear that Camden Council acted to protect them. Grenfell changed everything, and when told our blocks were unsafe to remain in, we acted. “We are now fully focussed on supporting our residents and their needs over the weekend and onwards.”

Updated 22:07 - Evacuation of Taplow block - Leader statement
22:07 UPDATE: We are evacuating residents from all five blocks, starting immediately. If you have friends or family you can stay with tonight please do so. If you do arrange to do this but need longer term accommodation please come to Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre tomorrow and we will help you find accommodation at no cost To ensure your safety we are door knocking the blocks one at a time. We are doing that in the following order: 1. Taplow 2. Burnham 3. Bray 4. Blashford 5. Dorney You will be able to get back into your block over the weekend to collect more of your possessions, however this will be under escort from the London Fire Brigade. In the meantime we recommend you pack a bag with enough items to last 2-4 weeks. 21:05 UPDATE : As a result of on-going checks the decision has been taken to decant residents from all five tower blocks at the Chalcots estate. We have council staff on site providing information and guidance to residents who are being provided with temporary accommodation. Where residents can stay with family and friends we are encouraging them to do this. But if this isn't possible we are providing temporary accommodation. Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, said: “Camden Council is absolutely determined to ensure that our residents are safe and we have promised them that we will work with them, continue to act swiftly and be open and transparent. “Last night the Chief Executive and I led a public meeting to listen to the concerns held by residents of the Chalcots estate. Upon hearing from residents we immediately instructed a joint fire inspection with the London Fire Brigade. “Today the London Fire Brigade completed a joint inspection of the blocks with Camden Council technical experts. Together we decided that the Taplow block needs to be temporarily decanted while we undertake urgent fire safety works so that residents can be fully assured of their safety. This means that we need to move residents from their homes and into temporary accommodation. “We anticipate that these works will be completed within three to four weeks. We realise that this is hugely distressing for everyone affected and we will be doing all we can, alongside the London Fire Brigade and other authorities, to support our residents at this difficult time. The Grenfell fire changes everything – we need to do everything we can to keep residents safe. “You will appreciate that this is an emerging situation and we will be providing regular updates.” Follow @camdentalking and camden.gov.uk/news

Have your say on our gambling policy
We're consulting on proposed changes to our gambling policy. The gambling policy enables us to regulate gambling and to minimise the risk of gambling related harm to our residents and visitors. It sets out how we expect all gambling premises in Camden to operate when providing gambling facilities such as betting services or gaming machines. We want to ensure that Camden offers vibrant cultural and leisure activities, but we also need to focus on Camden Plan priorities for reducing crime and keeping the borough a safe and attractive place to live and visit. The changes we are proposing and which we would like your feedback on are: updated references to changes in the law and national guidance a new local area profile which identifies the types of people most at risk of gambling related harm and where they are located in Camden a new area setting out the requirement on gambling operators to produce risk assessments a range of updates to existing chapters. The consultation is open until 1 September 2017. If you'd like to look at the proposals and take part in it, please visit camden.gov.uk/gamblingconsultation.

Extra tower block checks and inspections underway
Updating on the council's response to the Grenfell Tower fire in west London, Cllr Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, said: “We extend our sympathies to all of those affected by this tragedy as the terrible scale of its impact emerges. We understand the concerns held by our residents and we are determined to move as quickly as we can to reassure them about the safety of their blocks. We know that cladding design on our buildings is not the same as that used on Grenfell but the council has already begun expert testing into the materials used and we will be in a position to report on this over the next two days. On-site testing from inside buildings has begun and cladding samples have been removed from buildings to be taken away and tested. “In the mean time we have introduced a range of measures, over and above our already robust fire safety regime, to check and ensure that blocks are as safe as they can be. This additional assessment work includes a sweep of corridors to make sure they are clear of obstructions and anything that is potentially flammable. We will also be working with residents to test white goods (PAT testing), assessing fire doors in properties and we will be providing fire safety advice fire safety to residents. Our housing teams will be highly visible to our residents over the coming days and we want anyone who has any concerns to let us know so we can provide the information they need. “In doing all of this work, the council is working side-by-side with district management committees, respective residents' associations, our local MPs, and the London Fire Brigade, to check that fire safety measures and procedures within these buildings continue to meet the latest advice and guidance for all properties. We are ready to respond to any changes to fire safety advice following this tragic fire and we will provide a further update once testing has been completed.” Any residents who have any concerns can contact their housing officer though Contact Camden on 020 7274 4444.

Council sidelined in Grenfell Tower response as leader refuses to quit
Responsibility for taking care of survivors transferred to new response team after criticism of Kensington and ChelseaKensington and Chelsea council has been relieved of responsibility for taking care of the survivors of the Grenfell Tower disaster. The work is being handed over to a new Grenfell fire response team, made up of representatives from central government, the British Red Cross, the Metropolitan police, London-wide local and regional government and the London fire brigade. The move comes as the Conservative leader of Kensington and Chelsea, Nick Paget-Brown, resisted calls to resign in the face of mounting criticism over the chaos and paralysis that have gripped the council in the wake of the disaster. The response team will provide 24-hour access to services and support at the Westway sport and fitness centre. Help and advice are to be provided with housing, funds, health, social care and food.

The Guardian view on the Grenfell Tower fire: never again | Editorial
At least 12 people are dead. Hundreds are homeless. We need to know whyThe tragedy that struck Grenfell Tower in west London in the early hours of Wednesday morning has claimed the lives of at least 12 people. It is grimly probable that the final toll will be much higher. Many people remain critically hurt in hospital. And hundreds of families who lived in the block lost everything but the clothes they went to bed in. It is a fire that has all the hallmarks of a disaster that should never have happened. In one of the richest boroughs, in one of the world's richest cities, accusations of warnings ignored and safety recommendations delayed are growing. So too is evidence of a government in hock to a grasping building industry running a policy of austerity that has starved local councils of cash. It is a stark illustration of the chasm dividing the poor and the rich who live just a few streets apart.As always, no tragedy is so dark that the gloom cannot be lifted a little by the kindness of strangers. Just as in Manchester after the Arena bombing, and in London after the Borough Market attack, once again the bleakness of events has been mitigated by the extraordinary compassion and generosity of local people. It began almost at once as Muslims, up early in the month of Ramadan, were first on the scene in the small hours with offers of help, and gathered pace through the day until community centres sheltering the frightened, the tired and the newly homeless were overwhelmed with supplies. Yet it remains hard indeed to comprehend the terror and the loss that the residents of Grenfell Tower have been through. Continue reading...

Council Leader tells of concerted effort to carry out fire safety work through the night
Camden Council Leader, Georgia Gould, said: "Hundreds of Camden Council employees, led by myself and the Chief Executive, worked right through the night to support residents from around 650 homes into alternative accommodation. This operation remains unprecedented in scale for Camden. “We have been further supported in this process by police and fire officers, the British Red Cross, and other voluntary partners. I thank all those who have played a part so far. “On the estate overnight we swiftly began work to address fire safety issues that the London Fire Brigade had identified and which led the Brigade to say late on Friday that residents should not remain in the buildings until these issues are resolved. “The concerted effort to carry out fire safety work overnight at the estate resulted in the fire service being satisfied that one of the blocks, Blashford (containing around 70 homes), did not need to be evacuated. “Two rest centres are housing a large number of residents, who have been provided with somewhere to sleep, food, drink and support. Many others were provided with hotel accommodation. “Social workers have worked to support vulnerable residents, and specialist care accommodation is available for those who need it. “Having to evacuate people from their homes is always going to be distressing for those residents, especially when we have to do it at such short notice. I know some residents are angry and upset, but I want to be very clear that Camden Council acted to protect them. We were told by London Fire Brigade that it wasn't safe to stay in four Chalcots blocks - Grenfell changes everything, and we had to act fast. “We are now fully focussed on supporting our residents and their needs over the weekend and onwards.” A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: "London Fire Brigade have been working at the Chalcots Estate with Camden Council. Following extensive joint visits and inspections the Brigade advised that there were a number of fire safety issues in the buildings and recommended that residents should not remain in the buildings until these issues are resolved. "Camden Council have acted on this by evacuating and providing the residents with alternative accommodation so that remedial works can go ahead as quickly as possible. "London Fire Brigade officers will continue to work with Camden to put in place measures to improve safety for residents in these buildings."

Update on tower block safety checks
Media coverage this evening has compared the cladding on some of Camden's tower blocks to that alleged to have been used on Grenfell Tower in west London. In response a Camden Council spokesman said: “We have a different cladding system to Grenfell and the insulation used is made of rock wool material, which prevents fire spreading. “We also have fire resistant sealant between floors, which would stop a flat fire from spreading to neighbouring flats – as proved when a fire was contained at a flat in Taplow block in 2012. “We are doing further tests on the cladding in the lab at the Building Research Establishment at the moment and we will provide a further update once testing has been completed. “We remain ready to respond to any changes to fire safety advice following this tragic fire.”

Have your say on Euston
The Council has developed principles for a plan to guide development around and above Euston station, and we want to know what you think. Euston station is changing, with HS2 Ltd preparing for construction, and Network Rail, Crossrail 2 and Transport for London also thinking about how to design the station. A fully redeveloped station would maximise opportunities for new homes, jobs, open space and routes through and around the station. We are preparing a plan for development in the Euston station and tracks area with the Greater London Authority and Transport for London, which will both inform, and be informed by, emerging designs for the stations at Euston. Get involved We have prepared some principles to guide the plan, and want feedback on these from residents, community groups, voluntary organisations, businesses and anyone who uses the station. The overarching principle is to design Euston as a new piece of city with a world-class station, and a mix of homes (including genuinely affordable housing), economic uses, open space and cultural facilities, which knits into and reconnects existing communities and areas. The key principles that we think help to achieve this include: Best use of space An outward looking-station, fostering stronger relationships with nearby communities and places Respecting the history of Euston Designing for the future Boosting the economy Quality open space A network of healthy streets to link into the surrounding area. Read more about the principles and give us your views by 5pm on Monday 3 July. We will use your feedback to refine the principles and help shape a draft planning brief for the Euston station area, which we will consult on next year. Drop-in events You can also come along to a drop-in event to learn more and give comments: Tuesday 13 June 12.30 to 7.30pm St Pancras and Somers Town Living Centre (Francis Crick Institute) 2 Ossulston Street, NW1 1DF Wednesday 14 June 9.30am to 12.30pm Ampthill Square Tenants Hall, Barnby Street (opposite Stoutbeck), NW1 2RS Thursday 15 June 5.45 to 8.15pm HPod, Cumberland Market, Regent's Park Estate, NW1 3RH Tuesday 20 June 9am to 12 noon Surma Community Centre, 1 Robert Street, London, NW1 3JU Find out more Visit our Euston Area Plan website Sign up for updates on planning in Euston Visit our HS2 webpages.

Sheltered Housing Open Day
On Saturday 3 June, we are hosting an open day at Clyde Court and Monica Shaw Court, two of Camden's sheltered housing schemes just minutes from Kings Cross. Sheltered housing is for those aged 65 and over, are retired and are looking for safe, secure and manageable accommodation that makes it possible to continue living independently, with some support. The area itself is in the heart of one of the largest and most exciting areas of redevelopment in London, with new homes, shops, offices, galleries, bars, restaurants, schools and even a university. Add to that the location, the transport connections, canal-side setting and the rich and varied heritage, making Kings Cross unique, exciting and really quite special. You will have the opportunity to view available properties at both developments, so why not join us to find out what life is like in a sheltered housing scheme. You will see the latest assistive technology available, talk to people living in the schemes and find out first-hand how they made the transition from their own home to the scheme, and you can meet the sheltered housing team, who will be there to talk about your specific needs or answer any questions you might have. The event starts at 9.30am and will run through to 12.30pm, with everyone meeting at Clyde Court, where refreshments will be available: Clyde Court 1 Hamden Close London NW1 1HL If possible, please confirm your attendance to Amran Ahmed, Sheltered Housing Team, on 020 7974 4764 or email Amran.Ahmed2@camden.gov.uk Find out more on sheltered housing.

Grenfell Tower fire reaction
Commenting on Camden Council's latest reaction to the Grenfell Tower fire in west London, Cllr Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, said: “Our thoughts remain with the victims of the tragic events at Grenfell Tower and we have offered our support to Kensington & Chelsea. In the immediate aftermath of the tragic fire at Grenfell, Camden's housing team initiated additional tower block inspections and a review of fire safety. We are ready to fully support any national investigation into materials, building standards and safety regulations. It's vital for all of London's residents who live in high-rise buildings, that we learn from investigations into what caused and exacerbated the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower. “Whilst the arrangement of the cladding and insulation used on Camden Council's buildings differs* from that at Grenfell, and a fire in one of our clad buildings in 2012 was contained, it is still understandable that this week's tragedy, and the speculation about its cause, has worried people in other high-rise buildings. “We want to do as much as we can to reassure those residents, which is why we immediately initiated extra property inspections. These include checks of exterior cladding, and an overall review of the fire safety of our buildings. This is in addition to the ongoing programme of Fire Risk Assessments that all housing blocks on our estates are subject to. "Camden Council believes in public housing and we invest in it. We are determined to continue to ensure that our existing housing and our new developments are not only safe, but of high quality. We believe that local authorities are best at delivering solutions at a local level and this is our message to the Government. “We value our relationship with our residents and the Council has met with residents' associations and written to residents who live in our tower blocks to let them know we are carrying out these checks. This engagement work will continue and we'll do everything we can to keep concerned residents informed as our safety review progresses. “The council also continues to work closely with our local MPs and key partners and with the London Fire Brigade to ensure that fire safety procedures continue to meet the latest advice and guidance for all properties. We stand ready to respond to any changes to fire safety advice following investigations into this tragic fire.” *The design of the Camden cladding differs, using a vertically fixed panel system, rather than the horizontally fixed cassette system used at Grenfell. Previous statement made by Cllr Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, on June 14: “Our deepest sympathies go out to all those involved and affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower in west London, and particularly to the families and friends of those who have lost their lives in this tragedy. London's emergency services have done their utmost to tackle an incredibly challenging situation and I want to thank them for their dedicated and brave actions. “We are on standby to provide support, such as temporary housing, to Kensington and Chelsea Council and are liaising with the Royal Free Hospital to ensure casualties have assistance in place when they are ready to leave hospital. “Anyone who has concerns about friends or relatives at Grenfell Tower should contact the Police emergency telephone number on: 0800 0961 233. “If you would like to donate clothes, blankets etc. to support the victims there is a collection at NW5 Project, The Hut, Islip St until 6pm today. The Kensington and Chelsea Foundation have also set up a 'Grenfell Tower Appeal' for donations at www.thekandcfoundation.com/donate." Simon Tuhill, Camden Borough Commander at London Fire Brigade: “The London Fire Brigade have been responding to the major fire at Grenfell Tower in Kensington. “I want to reassure Camden residents that we remain on standby to keep them safe. In the event of a fire, please ring 999 as normal – we are here and ready to respond.” Cllr Gould added: “Camden Council has robust fire policies and procedures in place for our properties. Our Housing and Property Officers work closely with the London Fire Brigade and our partners to ensure they reflect the latest fire safety guidance." On Wednesday (14th) afternoon, the Leader and Councillor Pat Callaghan, Cabinet Member for Housing wrote to Camden District Management Committees and Tenant and Resident Associations to confirm additional fire safety checks will be made on council housing blocks.

Camden set to remove cladding from Chalcots Estate tower blocks
After receiving results of independent testing of cladding on Chalcots Estate from the laboratory at the Building Research Establishment, Camden Council's Leader has made the following statement: Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council, said: “Following last week's tragic fire at Grenfell Tower, Camden Council immediately reviewed fire safety at all our high rise blocks. We knew we had set the highest standards but we weren't prepared to take anything for granted and we were first in the queue to test the cladding on our blocks. “We have now received the results of independent testing of cladding on Chalcots Estate from the laboratory at the Building Research Establishment. “The arrangement of the cladding and insulation used on Camden Council's buildings significantly differs from that on Grenfell Tower. It includes fire-resistant rock wool insulation designed to prevent the spread of fire and fire resistant sealant between floors, designed to stop a high-intensity flat fire from spreading to neighbouring flats. This arrangement previously contained a fire at a flat in Taplow block in 2012. These are significant and proven arrangements to stop the spread of fire. “The new results from the laboratory show that the outer cladding panels themselves are made up of aluminium panels with a polyethylene core. “Therefore the panels that were fitted were not to the standard that we had commissioned. In light of this, we will be informing the contractor that we will be taking urgent legal advice. “Whilst we are clear that our cladding design and insulation significantly differs to that at Grenfell Tower, the external cladding panels did not satisfy our independent laboratory testing or the high standards we set for contractors. Camden Council has decided it will immediately begin preparing to remove these external cladding panels from the five tower blocks on the Chalcots Estate. Camden Council will do whatever it takes to ensure our residents are reassured about the safety of their homes. “Until the panels have all been removed, we will carry out 24/7 fire safety patrols on the estate's corridors to reassure residents and carry out enhanced fire safety checks. This additional assessment work includes a sweep of corridors to make sure they are clear of obstructions and anything that is potentially flammable. We will also be working with residents to test white goods (PAT testing), assessing fire doors in properties and we will be providing fire safety advice to residents. “We have set up an information point on Chalcots Estate staffed by our housing teams who will be highly visible to our residents over the coming days. We want any residents who have concerns or questions to come to the information point so we can help them. “We are working side-by-side with our housing groups and the London Fire Brigade and we remain ready to respond to any changes to national fire safety advice. We stand ready to fully support any national investigation into materials, building standards and safety regulations. “It's vital for all of London's residents who live in high-rise buildings, that we learn from investigations into what caused and exacerbated the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower.” Residents with any questions or concerns can contact housing officers through Contact Camden on 0207 974 4444.

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.

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.
