Guided Walk

The walk consists of some very interesting ‘firsts’, a lot are transport based, but also about the contrast in the life styles of the inhabitants. The area has recently undergone a massive transformation and is very much a ‘destination’ with so many new companies moving into the area. It is also a walk about the lives of the poor (including stories of some of my own ancestors) as well as the home of some iconic inventions and well-known traditions. We visit the old coal drops yard, now completely transformed and see some very diverse architecture. We visit St Pancras Old Church graveyard for a brief tour which includes John Soanes grave the inspiration for the telephone box
