The Kings Cross area has a fascinating history. During the
4th century
Romano-British inhabitants established premises that endure today as St.Pancras old church (right). The church boasts an original altarstone.

The 18th and 19th centuries saw the arrival of first canals and then railways. These transformed an, until then, semi-rural Kings Cross into an urban area of slums and workmans lodgings.
