Streets of St. Pancras
by Camden History Society
This updated and completely revised edition is packed with extra historical detail about an area that has been transformed over the last two decades. In nine walks we explore the original heartland of St Pancras around its ancient Old Church. We take in two spectacularly rejuvenated railway termini, and behind them the many acres of once derelict and inaccessible railway land now redeveloped into vibrant King’s Cross Central. To the west, we walk the still largely residential streets of multicultural Somers Town, once a haunt of radicals and European refugees; and the Euston area, currently in the throes of widespread demolition to make way for HS2.
