Walk and Talk All Change at St Pancras

Steve Denford’s walk starts with a look at the architecture of St Pancras Station and the Midland Grand Hotel, and he explains how the area has changed over the years – from when the station was originally built to the redevelopment of recent years. We will then move on to St Pancras Old Church and St Pancras Gardens, formerly the churchyard and converted into gardens around 1877 under the supervision of Thomas Hardy (then a young architect) to make way for the railway. An eclectic mix of notable people are either buried here or have associations with the churchyard, including Charles Dickens, who made it the location for body-snatching in A Tale of Two Cities. Time permitting, we will end with a visit to Camley Street Natural Park, created in 1984 from an old coal yard.
