NEED SOMEONE TO RUN A WOMENS CIRCLE/WORKSHOP

Hi

I have a space in a boutique at the back of a new women's boutique in Camden and Iam looking for people in the community interested in running a women's group/circle/poetry reading/book club etc. I would love to have this space used for the empowerment of women from all culture and background. If anyone has other ideas on how this space could be used please let me know. There is a bonus I think to the space as it also has a intimate and quite cafe on the premises which sell the best coffee I've taste too.

Thanks for reading

Parking space, kentish town

Hello,

im moving into a flat on kentish town high street shortly and my parents are coming to help me move in so i was wondering where i would be able to park for the day. I noticed side streets with meters close to my flat for when im moving my stuff in but are there any longer stay alternatives so i could take them out for a meal or trip afterwards. Id imagine a whole day on a parking meter might get expensive and would be a pain having to go back and keep topping it up.

NE Kentish Town near Brecknock Road is nice: NW5 2QY

Hiya. I've lived in the NE side of Kentish Town for 7 years and never had any trouble. The east side also has some lovely house - nicer than mine - just off Kentish Town Road. The west side of KT looks a bit crappy...although I've never lived there. It's possible the drunks live there and walk the other way out of the tube that I do.

1911 my father lived at No.7

My father lived in Fortess Grove as a child. He was born 1906 and the family continued to live in the area. He met my mother who lived in Willington Terrace when they were both 16. They married in 1928 and had over 50 years of married life together. They always talked about going "courting" over Parliament Hill Fields!

History of the Forum

Was an ABC cinema. I used to go to the Saturday morning pictures there and saw Zulu there in the early to mid sixties. It then became an Irish dancehall (can't remember the name), but became the Forum after the local Irish diaspora began to be priced out of the area in the eighties(?). Love Kentish Town. I grew up there and my mother still lives there.

North West London Ladies Social Group

This is a group for friendly, sociable ladies who live in North West London to meet up, relax, have fun and hopefully build some local friendships.

I just moved to West Hampstead with my boyfriend and would really like to expand my social circle. I've got a good set of friends, but they are all over London & I'd really like female friends who are close by enough to drop in for coffee, or head out for a quick drink after work or during the weekend without loads of travelling or military style planning.

I'm imagine that the kinds of meet ups will include going for a a coffee or drink seeing a movie, exploring new places, museums, shopping etc, everyday things really. They're very likely to be around Kilburn, Hampstead, Brondesbury, Swiss Cottage, Maida Vale, Queen's Park etc.

To find out more email me on

Hi, this is a longshot, but I lost my camera somewhere near the big playground/running track/Parliament Hill part of the Heath on 6th April 2009. It is a black Panasonic Lumix digital camera. I'm not fussed about the camera itself, but I'm devastated that I hadn't downloaded or printed the images off it. There were pictures of my son and baby girl and also a family party on it...

If you can help I'd be eternally grateful!

What on earth....

Bizarre informarion you've been given. Are your mates from South London? Have lived in Kentish Town for 5 years as a single girl alone. Touch wood, have never had any problems, I find the place safe, clean and pleasant. Never been robbed, there are probably drugs about but aren't there everywhere? And as for drunks...WTF? Try Soho on a Friday night, Kentish Town is positvely an old people's home after that. I don't want to hold it up as a paragon of virtue, because nothing lasts, but I reckon (after several years here) it's an awsesome place to live. Well connected, lively, great bars, close to Hampstead Heath and Primrose Hill. The nightlife has never phased me. Bizarre comments from your friends....xxxxxxxxx

Kentish Town at night

We're considering moving to Kentish Town but our friends have told us that it's really not nice at night - apparently lots of drunks, people on drugs, theft etc. Just generally very unsafe and they have strongly recommended we don't move there. We've lived in London for years so know that there are good parts and bad parts of most places and that you have to have your wits about you wherever you live but Kentish Town seems so nice during the day. I'm finding it hard to believe it would be so awful at night. Can people please give me their honest opinions on this! Where in kentish town would be considered a really "nice" place to live, if anywhere! Thanks so much for your help.

Gloucester Place and Hilldrop Crescent

Well done! And those early maps just as the railways were starting up must be fascinating with so much of what is now Inner London still effectively villages. However, not only not posh but highly notorious - Leighton Road (in my 1948 Map) leads into Hilldrop Crescent of Dr. Crippen fame (or rather infamy)!

Wed Nov 07

Could be Gloucester after all!

Thanks for looking. Funnily enough I have since found an old street map (1861) of Kentish Town that shows a Gloucester Road leading into a Gloucester Place. A later map (1865) shows that same stretch of road now named Leighton Road. Hopefully that may solve the mystery. Thanks again for your trouble.

Confirms - not posh!

Glenaster/Glenister/Gloucester

The 1940s Street Atlas I have offers only Glenister Park Road, Wandsworth SW16, Glenister Road, Greenwich, SE10 and Glenister Road, East Ham, SE9. Gloucester Place is described as "St. Marylebone" but maybe the districts were sub-divided over the preceding century and in 1845 it could have been called "Kentish Town". I think you're posher than you thought!

Wed Nov 07

Glenister not Glenaster?

Not being familiar with Kentish Town, where would I find Glenister on the map? What is it near?

Thanks for responding.

Sat Nov 03

Glenaster to Gloucester

Thanks for the suggestion. It maybe a bit too far South and posh doesn't sound like our family! But it is the best suggestion so far. Thanks again.

Glenaster Place/Gloucester Place

You imply the writing is rather hard to read. It might be a bit too far South but there is a Gloucester Place near Marylebone Station. Very posh, running down into Portman Square.

(You know that piece going round the web where only the first and last two letters of the words are correct but it is amazingly easy to read - the eye just fills in what it expects. And I was born in Gloucester so I recognised it as a possibility.)

Fri Nov 02

The Mother Shipton

See the recent article by Prof Marina Warner about Mother Shipton's (and a few other centuries-old pubs originally named after a real woman, and how these all changed their names in the 1980s for marketing purposes to things like 'The Oxford'). The article is called 'Old Hags' and it's in a book called 'London: City of Disappearances', edited by Iain Sinclair. Mother Shipton was born in 1488 and was a cunning woman/healer. The pub was renamed the Fiddler's Elbow in 1989.

When Does Oddbins Open?

When I pass the new Oddbins in Kentish Town Road at 10:00 it is always closed. When on earth does it open?

Sat May 26

They were built as workers' houses on land bequeathed by a widow named Eleanor Palmer – so definitely not planned for people with Saabs, BMWs or little bay trees in pots. (See the books on Kentish Town's history.) Early residents would also have had working stables/mews next door. My g-g-g-grandfather and family lived at no. 2 in about 1855-61 (so possibly its first occupiers): 2 adults, 2 teenage sons, a young daughter and a widowed niece, which must have been a squeeze. (They'd traded up by 1865 and bought a house in Raglan Street by 1871!)

No. 2 still looked unmodernised last time I was there. I'd like to know who actually built the cottages. (I wonder if my ancestor was involved, along with another family called Norcott.)

Does anyone know if Fortess Grove used to lead through to Falkland Road?
