Camden Highline smashes crowdfunding target

A crowdfunding campaign for the Camden Highline has raised £64k, almost double its initial target a month after beginning. The campaign benefitted from a wave of support including the Mayor of London Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan and Camden Market, who joined over 300 residents, community groups and businesses who donated to the campaign.

The project, a rival to New York’s iconic High Line, would link the world-famous Camden Market with the recently redeveloped King’s Cross area by transforming an 0.8km disused railway line in Camden into a new public park and garden walk.

The money raised will be used for feasibility work to establish key details, including the condition of the existing infrastructure, the resources required for transforming the disused railway, and timelines to completion. As well as the feasibility work the crowdfunding campaign will help pay to set up a new community organisation that will deliver the Camden Highline, and events and workshops that will guide the project’s aims and ambitions.

People can find out more about the Camden Highline during London Design Festival 16-24 September 2017. The Camden Highline will be carrying out an exhibition showing off the proposed route and running a series of events, workshops and walking tours.

Simon Pitkeathley, chief executive, Camden Town Unlimited, said: “This is a small but very significant step towards construction. We want to thank everyone who has donated to the campaign, from the Mayor to businesses, residents and community groups – we couldn’t have done this without you! Your support has been incredible and means we can begin the next stage of work with the best possible chance to turn this idea into a reality!”
