Old St Pancras
The church is one of the oldest sites of Christian worship in London. The altar houses a 7th century altar stone and medieval fabric does survive although much of the visible church dates from 1848. It retains its rural character surrounded by a Victorian park and historic burial grounds, including the tombs of John Soane, Mary Wollstonecraft and many others of note. These monuments, and the church itself, have survived the dramatic impact of railway lines running through the churchyard, into and out of the train station that takes its name.
Ancient drains threaten the longevity of this picturesque Grade II* listed building so the St Pancras Old Church Appeal was launched on St Pancras Day May 12th 2013 to raise urgent funds. All money raised will go towards building new drains and securing the cracks in the stone walls. To support the Appeal, please join us at our special events or join us on a Walk the Parish with the Parish tour, see below.
