Last weekend I went to see my parents. My mum was appearing in her choir’s entertainment evening again (three years seems to have gone very quickly!). We got to St Pancras station, only to find that the train was cancelled and the next one wasn’t for another hour or so. Usually, this would cause me to lose my usual fairly reserved librarian persona and step into the role of Enraged Ranting Woman, but this time I didn’t really mind. I don’t really know why, but it may have been just because I like St Pancras station a lot. As we had time on our hands, we decided to go and look at the station in more detail. I took some pictures. I fear I am turning into a railway geek like my dad and my uncle. Never mind.
I love the huge sculpture (above), but I also really like the freize round the bottom of it – you can just see it in the above photo. It’s really detailed – I could have spent far too long looking at all of the panels.
I also like the roof of the Barlow Shed:
Sir John Betjeman likes the roof, too:
