The Stationary Winding Engine House hauled trains up from Euston to Camden Bank by means of an endless rope. The buildings were designed by Robert Stephenson. The building of the London-Birmingham Railway devastated Camden (Charles Dickens described the work as like 'the shock of a great earthquake' in 'Dombey & Son). The machinery installed here was only used from 1837 to 1844, but the vaulted buildings being built are now Grade II*, as a rare surviro of such structures.
