Midland Railway Works near King's-Cross
The vast works now going on between Old St. Pancras Church, in Euston-road, for some distance westward of King's-cross, in constructing the grand new terminus of the Midland Railway and its approaches from Kentish Town through Camden-square, have been repeatedly mentioned in this Journal; and we gave, some time ago, an illustration of the state of Old St. Pancrns-churchyard, through which the line has been carried, to the great disturbance of many of the ancient graves. From the raised ground of the churchyard, opposite the huge gasometer which marks the entrance to Agar Town, the railway is to be carried across St. Pancras-road to that portion of Somers Town which has been cleared of dwelling-houses for the intended station-yard of the Midland terminus. An iron viaduct is being constructed* for this purpose. In the mean time the road is crossed by a temporary wooden bridge, of which we here present an Illustration.
