Boundaries and identity

Camden Town is a dynamic area, with a name known internationally, but its true dimensions are poorly understood. This section discusses boundaries and considers a future from the past.

From the 1950s St Pancras, and then Camden Council, demolished some of the Georgian terraces but many remain, in Council, housing association and private ownership.

The present political ward boundaries, however, and the conservation areas introduced in the 1970s, take too little account of the character of Camden Town as a Georgian suburb. And there is an important digital future.
