Rochester Conservation Area

Welcome to Rochester Conservation Area in Camden, London, UK.

Camden is one of thirty-two London boroughs. Camden Town was created from the first half of the nineteenth century. While central Camden Town is known for its day-time market and night-time music venues, the northern part of Camden Town is mainly residential.

Our Conservation Area lies between the Regents Canal to the south, Kentish Town Road on the west, Rochester Road forming the north side and Camden Broadway to the east.

Rochester Conservation Area Appraisal was created by Camden Council in 2001 to inform development proposals and applications. Although north Camden Town and South Kentish Town have several small conservation areas, there remain streets that are not included. We have drafted a revised Rochester Conservation Statement (2016) providing  more detailed descriptions of the character and features for each area, and proposed extended boundaries for Rochester.

We provide  a new history of the area, identifying the development northwards from Camden Town rather than southwards from Kentish Town.
