  2. 2. Belsize Park History Just the name of this North West London area is enough to cement its status as one of Central London's most prime areas. Derived from the French 'bel assis', meaning well situated', Belsize Park is a close neighbour of Hampstead, Primrose Hill and Camden Town. Tracing its roots back to The Manor of Belsize in 1317, the neighbourhood was famed for its 17th century mansion and parkland built for the Countess of Chesterfield by her husband. The residential estate as known today sprung up between 1852 and 1878, with further development after World War I. In 1973 Camden Council agreed to make Belsize a conservation area, centring on Belsize Park, Belsize Park Gardens and Belsize Village. The conservation catchment has since been extended to include further roads where magnificent examples of residential architecture can be found.
