English Heritage

Site: Sir Nigel Gresley (1 memorial)

N1, King's Cross Station, Platform 8

By 2008 when we heard about this plaque it had been hidden/removed behind long-term building works. From Network Rail we learnt that it had originally been fixed to the exterior (west) wall of the western range of buildings at King's Cross station - the other side of the building in our photo, a wall which is now inside the Western ticket concourse (or the String Vest as we know it). In 2013 Tom Fernley of Network Rail told us it had been re-erected here, on Platform 8, inside the ticket barriers so Tom kindly escorted us in to allow these photos.
