St Pancras Station

Product Description

This is the dramatic story of two great buildings heroically constructed in the midst of 19th century London and then, in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, saved and restored - to their original use - by engineering and architectural skills worthy of their Victorian predecessors.

Since the 19th century, St Pancras Station and the Midland Grand hotel, in gothic revival style, have been key landmarks. However, the station (with its unique single-span roof) became underused. The Midland Grand, overtaken by new more modern hotels, closed in 1935, and was shockingly vandalised by its then owners. Its supporters fought a campaign to prevent demolition; their success marked a change in officialdom's approach to London's architectural heritage. The station, the terminus of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, HS1, and the hotel are now beautifully restored for use.
