Our Local History Group


We feel we are lucky to live in a historically very interesting area – which has already been quite well researched but which give opportunities for a lot more research.

The Inkerman Area History Group has met on an occasional basis over the last few years and had lectures from Gillian Tindall (Author of The Fields Beneath – the excellent history of Kentish Town) and Malcolm Holmes chief archivist and local historian and others.

We have produced a ‘History of the Area in Maps’. (50p donation requested)

We are scanning in the text and maps of the history and will post on the website along with more research as we accumulate it.

We have visited the Camden History Centre at Holborn Library and done research.

We have the results of the available census records for some streets and hope to build these up to a complete coverage of the area.

We helped to write our section of ‘The Streets of Kentish Town’ book.
