Building history

Researching Camden's buildings

You may be able to discover something of the history of the actual building, probably some evidence of what stood on the site before the present building and most certainly information about some of the occupiers and owners of the house.

You may find it helpful to read about the general history of the area before you begin research. You may find that some work has already been done on the street and that we hold an article, news cuttings or sales catalogues relating to the site.

The centre has a number of catalogues and indexes that you should search to find any useful information or published material. If you hold any deeds for the property or know of their whereabouts you should check these as they may list some of the previous owners and often include a plan of the site.

Planning and listed buildings
