Travellers’ challenge to ban on camping on public land succeeds
Bromley decision could have implications for other UK authorities seeking injunctionsA high court judge has refused to grant a final injunction banning Travellers from stopping on vast swathes of public land, in a ruling that could have major implications on whether other local authorities are allowed such orders.The London borough of Bromley obtained a de facto borough-wide injunction preventing people from camping on 171 parcels of land in August 2018. The campaign group London Gypsies and Travellers challenged this injunction, arguing it was a disproportionate and discriminatory response to the accommodation crisis of Gypsies and Travellers.

South Kensington

South Kensington is a London Underground station in Kensington, west London. It is served by the District, Circle and Piccadilly Lines.

It is hard to define boundaries for South Kensington, but it is generally talking about the commercial area around the tube station. The smaller centre around Gloucester Road station can also be considered part of South Kensington, as well as the institution area around Exhibition Road, which includes such famous names as the Natural History Museum, Science Museum, Royal Albert Hall, Imperial College, Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Royal College of Music.

Large numbers of French, Spanish and Italian citizens live in the area. A significant French presence is evidenced by the location of the consulate, the Lycee Francais Charles de Gaulle - a large French secondary school opposite the Natural History Museum - and the French Institute, home to a French cinema. There are also several French bookshops in the area.

John Rocque Map of London (1762) FREE DOWNLOAD
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
