St Jamesí Gardens, Camden and the National Temperance Hospital :: Shared Description

Situated close to Euston railway station, St Jamesí Gardens is bounded by Cardington Street to the east and north and gives access to Hampstead Road on the west. The gardens originally opened in 1788 as the new burial ground for St Jamesí Piccadilly, but became a public garden in 1887. Some headstones and memorials remain, but many are now badly eroded and identification can be difficult.
According to press reports, the gardens are under threat of obliteration as part of the HS2 high-speed rail project. Demolition is also likely for the adjacent National Temperance Hospital, which borders the gardens to the north and closed in 1990.
This Shared Description is for views of both the gardens and the hospital. Information on the gardens may be found: LinkExternal link , LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link while a Wikipedia page on the Hospital can be viewed: LinkExternal link
