Plaque (lost): St Pancras Basin


St Pancras Basin, just above the lock, was opened in 1870 as a coal wharf. Where boaters used to load and unload cargoes of heavy coal is now the site of St Pancras Cruising Club. Below the lock, you can still see the entrance to a disused basin and the former lock keeper's cottage.
