How can the journey to and from Gospel Oak Station be improved?

The DPNF would like to know how the community feels about the approach to and arrival at Gospel Oak Station. Footfall to the station has more than doubled in the past five years and is set to increase further with possible future development of the Murphy’s site that runs adjacent to the train line heading east.

Please complete our survey here and let us know how you would like the approach to Gospel Oak Station improved.


Join the DPNF at the York Rise Party on Sunday 11/09

York Rise Street Party

The DPNF will be joining the action at the annual York Rise Street Party where we will be available to discuss the First Draft Plan that was published in July and is now open for feedback from the Dartmouth Park community. The York Rise Party is a perfect opportunity to celebrate all that is great in the area and have your say in what you hope will bring positive changes for the future.

See you at York Rise on Sunday 11th September!

All the very best,

The DPNF Committee

Encounter : Highgate New Town with Fabian Watkinson

London is full of modernist architecture, from the hidden and private, to the big and public. Not all of it is understood, some is hated. Slowly attitudes are changing, and more of us now appreciate postwar buildings. Presented by John Escolme and Judy Matheson, Encounter, the architectural history radio series, explores the work of the architects responsible for these buildings, giving them a voice to talk about what they created and why.


Programme 3 : Highgate New Town
Creating a modern interpretation of the traditional street became something of a mantra for architects working for Camden Borough Architects Department in the 60s and 70s, and in this special edition of Encounter, John Escolme and Judy Matheson return to Camden Borough to take a tour of Highgate New Town. Fabian Watkinson discusses the changing fortunes of council housing in the area.


Encounter is broadcast across London on 104.4 FM on arts station ‘Resonance’ and online at
