  • the Dunboyne Road housing estate, Camden
  • the Branch Hill housing estate, Camden

The Camden estates were built in the 70s and have been listed because they both have special architectural interest. The Darul Ummah Community Centre has been listed on the grounds of special architectural and historical interest.
