Brief Description

Camden Gardens is a public garden on a triangular site enclosed by railings, laid out with grass and trees. Recent landscaping has been carried out with new railings, gates and planting.

History

The land was formerly owned by Marquis Camden and the garden was originally provided for the private use of residents of the surrounding houses. A Committee of inhabitants managed the gardens out of rates levied by St Pancras Borough Council. In the mid-19th century the land was crossed by the London Midland and Scottish Railway but further building was prohibited under the London Squares and Enclosures (Preservation) Act of 1906.
