Sometimes, whilst researching a topic, unexpected opportunities arise. This proved to be the case recently at Kings Cross where, during a site visit related to a future piece on the station’s sub-surface logistics, it became clear that our Network Rail guide might just be amenable to a slightly loftier piece of photography as well.
And so, with thanks to Network Rail, and without further comment, we present a brief look at the state of affairs within the Clock Tower at Kings Cross and some views from the top of the station.
Update: We’ve now added some pictures taken during the restoration of the clock in November 2011. These pictures are all courtesy of Simon Hickman / English Heritage, to whom we give thanks for letting us reproduce them here. – JB
