Kentish Town Road NW1 (see also Kentish Town Road NW5)

Dating back to 1449, the name probably derives from a corruption of Ken-Ditch. Ken is the Celtic word for green. Ditch being the river Fleet (which today flows beneath). The premature addition of Town maybe satirical for this rapidly expanding village.
Kentish Town Road extends due north from the centre of Camden Town to the centre of Kentish Town with a tube station at each end. North of Prince of Wales Road the post code changes to Kentish Town Road NW5. This section only concerns the beginning stretch which is considered Camden Town.
It is a busy road with a great diversity of architecture. There is mix of modern and old buildings, some residential, some commercial. There are few trees; one or two sycamore and lime off street. Heading north from Camden Town tube station to the canal and rail bridge, little if any residential properties are likely to come on to the market. Adjacent to Regent's canal however, 12 luxury flats comprise Grand Union Walk, built late 1980's. One or two have appeared on the market lately and sold for high prices.

Heading north a row of Victorian houses sit behind gardens on the east side. Crossing Hawley Road a row of shop-fronted Victorian terraced houses extend as far as Prince of Wales Road interupted by the junctions of Farrier Street, Castle Road and Kelly Street on the east. The west side is mainly made up of rather grand victorian terraced house set well back from the road.
