Camden Goods Station Through Time

Availability: Out of stock

The London & Birmingham Railway was the major project of its day, designed by Robert Stephenson, one of the great railway pioneers, who also supervised its construction and its opening in 1837. Camden Goods Station became the goods terminus and Euston Station the passenger terminus. For a few years trains were hauled by rope from Euston up the incline to Camden before the intensification of both passenger and goods services rendered such technology obsolete. The L&BR left a strong footprint on the landscape from Euston to Camden Town and Primrose Hill. The story moves from rapid economic growth to eventual decline and then to the recent regeneration. The historic features around the former Goods station are providing the basis of Camden's transformation through its markets, media, music, food and entertainment into a global brand. Join Peter Darley in unfolding this story from 1837 to the present day.
