Historic Interest

Local listing:- Mid 19th century former public house on corner of Grafton Road and Queens Crescent. Formerly the Mamelon Towers public house, this building is well detailed with pediments to first floor windows and a prominent dentil cornice. It is a landmark building on this corner site and has an important role as one of the few remaining historic buildings in this area, relating well to the 19th century terrace opposite. The name Mamelon was a reference to the siege of Sevastopol which lasted from September 1854 until September 1855 during the Crimean War, a recent event when this building was built. Mamelon was a French word for a breast shaped hillock and a strategic hillock in the Seige was given this name. Several streets in the Kentish Town area are also named after places or military e.g. Inkerman and Alma (battles) and Raglan, Cathcart and Willes (generals).
