Northern Line Walk – Day 1
Golders Green to Hampstead
After walking a short distance on North End Road I enter Golders Hill Park. It is a small park that is next to Hampstead Heath. I first head to where a number of deer are kept.
Hampstead to Belsize Park
The shops continue on Hampstead High Street.
Belsize Park to Chalk Farm
There is an air raid shelter beneath the Belsize Park tube station. The entrance to the shelter is visible above ground. A wierd piece of stencil graffiti is on its wall.
Chalk Farm to Camden Town
Just after the station is a famous piece of Banksy stencil graffiti. This isn’t the original version as this section of wall has been painted over several times only for the stencil to reappear. The stencil is apparently protected by Camden Council and the Roundhouse which is why it keeps on getting retouched and repaired.

As I walk on Chalk Farm Road the Camden Markets start to appear. Part of the canal side market on the east side was recently damaged by fire but there are still a huge number of market stalls left to visit.
