CAMDEN-TOWN, a suburb of London, a subdistrict, and three chapelries in St. Pancras parish and district, Middlesex. The suburb adjoins the north-east side of Regent's Park, 3½ miles NW of St. Paul's; is intersected by the Regent's canal and by the North London and Northwestern railways; and has a railway station of Camden with telegraph, a railway station of Camden-Road, and three post offices, Camden-Town-High-street, Camden-Town-Park-street, and Camden-Road,‡ all under London N. ...

Here are a veterinary college, St. Martin's alms-house, St. Pancras' workhouse, a cemetery, with the graves ofDibdin and Sir J. Barrow, and the depôt of the Northwestern railway, with the stationary engines for drawing the trains up an inclined plane.-The subdistrict is bounded by lines along High street, the Regent's canal, Gloucester place, Pancras-road, Brewer-street, Skinner-street, and New-road.
