Camden Catacombs (geograph 4119582).jpg

The Camden Catacombs are a system of underground passages in Camden Town underneath part of the Camden markets, constructed in the 19th century, as of 2012 owned by Network Rail. They are not true catacombs (repositories for dead bodies), but an underground area originally used as stables for horses and pit ponies working on the railways. The catacombs also included an underground pool for canal boats operating on the nearby Regent's Canal. They are not open to visitors owing to danger of flooding.[1][2]
