A crowdfunding campaign to transform a derelict railway line into a park has raised £64k smashing its target a month after it began.
The campaign raising funds for the Camden Highline benefitted from a wave of support including from the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and Camden Market, who joined over 300 residents, community groups and businesses who donated.
Camden Town Unlimited chief executive Simon Pitkeathley said: “This is a small but very significant step towards construction.
“We want to thank everyone who has donated to the campaign,” he added.
The project would link Camden Market with the King’s Cross area by transforming half a mile of disused railway line in Camden into a new public park and garden walk.

The money raised will be used for a feasibility study on the condition of the existing infrastructure and on the resources needed to transform the route.
