In & Around #London… Forgotten Boroughs

The Monday Photoblog!

Monday is mute on The Daily Constitutional (well, almost mute) – because Monday is the day when we post five images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides and London Walkers.

Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.

They are the relics of London street signage with the names of our forgotten boroughs. Some abolished and gone forever – Holborn and Hampstead are now in Camden with Finsbury being part of Islington. Some kept their names in mergers with the neighbours - Chelsea with Kensington and Hammersmith with Fulham. All pre-date 1965. Keep an eye out for them…

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
