The transformation from fields to streets in Camden Town and Kentish Town began in the eighteenth century. This book covers many aspects of life in these adjacent neighbourhoods of Northwest London. The area was crossed by railway lines that provided much local employment. Camden Town was also a notable centre of the piano making industry. While public houses proliferated, some originally coaching inns, the residents’ spiritual needs were well served by churches and chapels. Theatres and cinemas provided entertainment and almost anything, including talking parrots, could be bought in the shops on or close to Camden High Street and Kentish Town Road. More recently, the area around Camden Lock on the Regent’s Canal has become one of London’s leading tourist attractions, famous for its vibrant atmosphere, restaurants and shops. Post Second World War redevelopment replaced large areas of Victorian housing: this book shows while much has changed amazingly, much has survived.

About the Author:

Dick Weindling was previously Head of Educational Management at the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) and then a freelance educational researcher. Specialising in the work of new headteachers he wrote several education books. He has now retired and works on history projects with his writing colleague Marianne Colloms. Dr Marianne Colloms graduated in geography and for her PhD at London University researched aspects of the growth of nineteenth century London, remaining fascinated by Victorian and local history. She has co-authored a number of articles and books on the history of Camden, in particular Hampstead, Kilburn, Camden and Kentish Towns. Much of this work concerns biographical material comprising both full length works and briefer texts suited, for example, to cemetery histories. Dr Colloms is also a partner in a long established design consultancy.
