120 years of housing in Somers Town


18 June 2022

14:00 -15:30


From Euston Station to St Pancras Station, this walk explores the community of SOMERS TOWN, just north of the Euston Road. The area’s slum housing was transformed by the action of public and charitable bodies and we will see some of the most iconic blocks of social housing of the 20th century.
.
But we will end by looking at a major new private development and consider how it is likely to impact on the existing community. Local plans are being put in hand and people are already acting in response to try and preserve public spaces.

All proceeds from this walk will be donated to The Connection at St. Martin's, a charity helping the homeless people in London recover and find housing and work.

The walk will be led by qualified Camden Tour Guide Mike Marriott.
