Introduction – what is the Inkerman Area Residents Association?

To remind established residents and to introduce us to new residents…

The Inkerman Area Residents Association (IARA)  is our local residents’ association. We cover the area bounded to the east by Kentish Town Road, to the south by Prince of Wales Road and  to the west and north by the railway lines.

We started 34 years ago. We are all volunteers. Anyone who lives here is automatically a member, and you can be involved in the association by coming to meetings and/or joining our ever-growing e-mail group, the main way we consult on local issues as they arise (e mail us on inkermanara@hotmail.com to join the group) (more…)

Welcome to our website

This is the website of the Inkerman Area Residents Association.   See above for information about the Association.

See also the articles reporting local events as well as links to other information about the area.

If you are interested in the history of the area, click on Local History in the column on the right for a series of maps through the years showing how the area was built up on fields.

In Local history there is also a link to the excellent Conservation Area Statement which has a description of all the streets and buildings in the Conservation Area which cover much of The Inkerman Area.
