The Menu at the top of the page has these links:

  • The Museum pages provide detail across origins of the estate land, the pattern and control of building, experiences of living including society and business and a short look at more modern times
  • The Stories pages are narratives and articles
  • The Conservation pages present Rochester Conservation Area and reclaiming Camden Town through history.



The material for this web was a dissertation in 2018 at the University of London, Camden Town as a Georgian Suburb, based on  sources and  bibliography.

I’m grateful for the support of Camden History Society.
