The Regent’s Canal at 200

January 28 @ 7:15 pm - 8:30 pm

Illustrated historical talk by Lester Hillman at the Camden Local Studies Centre

The completed Regent’s Canal opened in 1820 and the colourful festivities set off from today’s York Way (Maiden Lane) Camden. George IV came to the throne on 29th January 1820.

At the bicentenary of the King, (who put ‘Regent’ in the Canal and ‘King’ in King’s Cross), Lester Hillman explores Camden at a dramatic crossroads.
