St Pancras Old Church
Pancras Road

The old medieval church of St Pancras was almost abandoned when the new St Pancras church was built adjacent to Euston Square. It was eventually restored, retaining some of its early fabric and monuments. Its churchyard, containing the burials of many famous people, was disturbed by the construction of the Midland Railway. Some of these people are commemorated on a large sundial; other early monuments survive, most notably that of Sir John Soane, the architect, whose tomb is said to be the model for the red telephone box designed by Giles Gilbert Scott.

There will be a guided tour, led by Lester Hillman, of the restored medieval church and its churchyard. Lester has given several talks at NLU3A monthly meetings.

Meet at 11.00am at Old St Pancras Church. The nearest underground station is King’s Cross St Pancras.

There will be no fee for the visit, but donations to the church will be welcomed.

Please email Pam Lewis at to register for the visit, giving your NLU3A membership number and a contact telephone number, preferably a mobile.
