New York's High Line serves as inspiration for London's newest endeavor: The Camden Highline, a green transformation of an abandoned railway in Camden town.

This vibrant green space would run for nearly a kilometer, connecting London's iconic Camden Market to the redeveloping Kings Cross. Covered with greenery and vegetation, this new development is set to attract even more tourists to an already bustling neighborhood. Walking the entire line would take the average person approximately 10 minutes, making for an elevated a leisurely experience. The inhabitants of Camden have been dreaming of developing this Highline for years, a project that is finally conceptualized thanks to crowd-sourced funding.

This project is feasible through the collaboration of Camden Town Unlimited, a local community group, and Network Rail - the project will be brought to life when the fund reaches its target of £40k.
