    Bimbling Around Camden Town, London ~ 15Jun18

    I took the tube on the Northern Line from Kings Cross to Chalk Farm and then walked the two miles or so back to Kings Cross via Mornington Crescent as I wanted a look at the Egyption-style art deco exterior of the former Carreras Cigarette Factory, the home of Black Cat cigarettes. Another bimble at another time for that one when I have a very wide angle lens with me. In the order taken

    Just outside Chalk Farm tube station is the Round House, a Grade II listed entertainment venue. Built by the London and North Western Railway in 1847 as a covered railway engine shed with a turntable inside.

    Grade II listed Camden Stables, now called Stables Market, was built in 1854. It is a network of former stable blocks, horse tunnels, tack rooms, saddlers workshops and a hospital for horses that were used for moving railway trucks and carriages around in the adjoining railway goods yard.

    The number of horses stabled over the years ranged for 400 to 800 at its peak. The last horse retired from shunting in 1967.

    Over 450 shops and stalls are housed in the stables selling a variety of antiquarian and unique items from clothing, accessories and jewelry to furniture and food.

    Having crossed over Regents Canal the shops along Camden High Street have a distinct way of advertising their wares.
