Print-friendly version of this page
Hampstead Heath railway station has been part of the London Overground since 11 November 2007.
In the nineteenth century up to 100,000 people per day used the station at weekends and on public holidays as the Heath was a popular holiday destination for Londoners. The station was rebuilt, after Second World War bomb damage, and in the 1990s in conjunction with works to allow Eurostar trains to use the North London Line.Licence:

|THE STREETS OF HAMPSTEAD HEATH|
South End Green has been marked as such on maps since the 18th century, going simultaneously by another name - Pond Street
The area took more shape along the rough edges of Hampstead Heath in 1835, when the small puddle at the bottom of aptly-named Pond Street
was filled in. Much like Parliament Hill
on the opposite side of the Heath, the arrival of a tram terminus brought people, shops, roads, homes and large public houses to this once sleepy hamlet by mid-century.
