The area provides a delightful tour of building styles. The Greek revival New St Pancras of 1820 was the most expensive church built in London since St Paul’s. Its charm is enhanced by the caryatids: a set of unfortunate ladies who proved too large for their allotted spaces and had their tummies trimmed to fit. The raging gothic of the station itself has become a welcome and treasured part of the London skyline; while the British Library takes us confidently into the 21st century.
Despite the dominance of stone, glass and concrete, timber remains a constant in building materials. And no more so than in wooden floors.

Along with ease of maintenance, they add prestige and value to all kinds of domestic and commercial buildings.

Useful facts about St Pancras:
St Pancras is an area of London. For many centuries the name has been used for various officially-designated areas, but now is used informally and rarely, having been largely superseded by several other names for overlapping districts. The parish of St Pancras was administered by a vestry until the Metropolitan Borough of St Pancras was established in 1900. In 1965 the former area of the borough was combined with that of two others to form the London Borough of Camden.
St Pancras was originally a medieval parish, which ran from close to what is now Oxford Street north as far as Highgate, and from what is now Regent's Park in the west to the road now known as York Way in the east, boundaries which take in much of the current London Borough of Camden, including the central part of it. However, as the choice of name for the borough suggests, St Pancras has lost its status as the central settlement in the area. The district now encompassed by the term St Pancras is not easy to define, and usage of St Pancras as a place name is fairly limited.
During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, St Pancras was famous for its cemeteries, for as well as the graveyard of Old St Pancras Church, it also contained the cemeteries of St James's Church, Piccadilly, St Giles in the Fields, St Andrew, Holborn, St. George's Church, Bloomsbury, and St George the Martyr, Holborn. These were all closed under the Extramural Interment Act in 1854; the parish was required to purchase land some distance away, and chose East Finchley for its new St Pancras Cemetery.
