Hidden behind St Pancras station, where tourists never go, is St Pancras Old Church. It’s like Halloween every day of the year in the grim graveyard of this old church where large trees cast a gloomy aspect over the moss-covered tombstones.
There has been a church on this site since at least the 6th century, but the current church building dates mostly from the mid-19th century.
Some famous people are buried here including Johann Christian Bach, who was the youngest son of Johann Sebastian Bach. He was known as “the English Bach” and died in London in 1782.
Future blogs will look at some interesting literary connections to this graveyard.
