Coal hole prints

Kate Guy from Cardabelle Design and Sue Byrne engaged in some guerrilla print-making recently, using the beautiful manhole covers on the pavements in Primrose Hill, particularly the ones on Fitzroy Road outside the Princess of Wales pub. The pair were inspired by Berlin-based pirate printers who used urban utility covers to print bags and shirts.

Printed coal hole bags can be bought from the Cardabelle Design pop-up shop at 41 Chalcot Road. Cardabelle Design is extending its tenure and will be there until Christmas.

Proposed junction redesign for King Henry’s Road

Over the summer Camden Council proposed a redesign of the junction of King Henry’s Road near Ainger Road. They feel the current layout is too wide for pedestrians to cross. The plan is to extend the pavements on either side of the road and there is the potential to add small trees to these areas. This scheme will result in the loss of five permit-holder parking spaces.
