The name Hartham derives from a place in Wiltshire, possibly connected with Henry Bunkell who developed this area during the 1870s after buying 13 acres of fields from Thomas Poyning (hence Poynings Road). Hartham Road, like other neighbouring streets, such as Cardozo Road, Freegrove Road, Penn Road are lovely leafy Victorian streets which form a small residential area, quite unrecognised. Camden Bus was the first estate agency to take the opportunity of defining this area in their advertisements as Hillmarton Conservation. Camden and Islington estate agents followed suit after previously describing this area as either Holloway or Camden Borders. These streets have an up-market feel like the neighbouring streets of Camden Square, but without the price tag. They lie between, Islington, Holloway and Camden and the fact that they're on-the-edge-of-the-map is, I'm sure, the main reason why they remain so affordable. Take a stroll down these roads and you'll know what I mean.
Most of the houses are in groups of extremely attractive Victorian terraces set well back from the road. Many have shallow square bay windows and overlook a quiet street lined with lime, cherry, rowan and plane trees. It’s a peaceful residential street joining Hungerford Road with Hillmarton Road and the only access to the cul de sac section of Freegrove Road. Most of the houses have large gardens and, as quite a few of the houses have been converted into flats, many of which are communal. A local government arboriculturalist told me if any of the Hartham Road gardens have apple trees, it is likely they are older than the buildings themselves, as the whole area once was an orchard.
