Block Management Chalk Farm
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Chalk Farm .
History of Chalk Farm
Chalk Farm is situated inner north-west of London, in the borough of Camden. It is 3.9 miles from central London. The area was originally known as the Manor of Rugmere. This was an estate, mentioned in the Domesday Book, published in 1086, during the reign of King William I, "The Conqueror", (r.1066-1087).
King Henry VIII, (r.1509-1547), bought part of the manor, and he detached it to form the north-eastern part of what would become Regent's Park. So the remainder was then more commonly known as Chalk Farm. Both the detached area and the remainder, were still part of the parish of St. Pancras. In 1786, the estate was sold to Charles Fitzroy, 1st Baron of Southampton.
The origin of the name Chalk Farm, may derive from the colour of the farmhouse, sometimes known as the White House. It is commonly acknowledged that Chalk Farm was previously known as Lower Chalcot Farm, and that Chalk originates from Chalcot. Another theory is that chalk has often been used as a product in whitewash, so creating this name.
Like many London suburbs, Chalk Farm was rebuilt during the reign of Queen Victoria, (r.1837-1901).
In 1907, Chalk Farm station was opened by the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway. At this time, trains only ran between Charing Cross and Golders Green. The route we now know as the Northern Line, was extended to Edgware, in 1924.
Chalk Farm remains to this day, a flourishing and popular part of London.
