The impressive frontage of St Pancras Railway station has had a chequered past. Built between 1868 (when the station opened) and 1873, it opened as The Midland Grand Hotel, eventually closing in 1935 when it’s running costs became too high. (There were only five bathrooms with a total of nine baths for the three hundred bedrooms with staff required to fill and distribute water jugs to most bedrooms). It was bombed during WWII but suffered little damage thanks to its robust construction. The building was granted Grade I listed status in 1967 which ensured its preservation for the future. Until its closure in 1985 it was used by various rail companies and the building was then left to decay. In 2002 an American company won the contract to redevelop the building as a hotel and apartments and the new 5* hotel opened in 2011. Built in the Gothic Revival style, it is lovely to see such a wonderful building refurbished and restored to it’s former glory. One of these days I hope to go inside but in the meantime I’m happy to gaze at the exterior .... and do a little car spotting 😉😄 . . . #stpancras #ilovelondon #total_architecture #capturingbritain_urban #lovegreatbritain #mybestcityshots #addicted_to_facades #thisprettyengland #gothicrevival #gothicarchitecture #visitlondon #fiftyshades_of_history #excellent_britain #explore_britain #our_britain #brilliantbritain #britains_talent #gloriousbritain #yourbritain #greatbritainshots #raw_uk #1ukshot #pocket_uk #efe_snapshots_travel #thisislondon #excellent_universe #loves_windows #englandsbigpicture #uk_greatshots

In 927 verwierven een zekere Meginaud of Maingaud en zijn vrouw Hiletrude de rots van Esch-sur-Sûre, waar zij een romaanse toren van acht vierkante meter en boerderijen lieten bouwde. Het kasteel werd aanzienlijk vergroot in de gotische stijl door de twee laatste graven van Esch in de 13e eeuw.
