Area: Location and History

The name ‘Kentish Town’, in recognisable form, was first recorded in 1208, during the reign of King John. By 1456, it bacame recognised as a significant but isolated rural hamlet.

Later in the 18th century the introduction of regular coach services, operating on improved roads, made Kentish Town increasingly convenient as a place to live, benefiting from a pleasant setting beside the Highgate tributary of the River Fleet.

With Kentish Town Road remaining a major route north, the early 19th century witnessed an fast expansion of building, in particular during the period between 1840 and 1870, when the majority of the earlier buildings were cleared. Large areas of land were acquired for railway development and the last grazing land disappeared in the 1860s, when a station opened opposite the Bull and Gate coaching inn. Underground stations followed, opening at South Kentish Town (now closed) and Kentish Town in 1907.

The post-Second World War period saw further housing projects replace a substantial number of the earlier dwellings, although the area still retains a great deal of charm, with its own unique character.
