Tanya Loi
Thomas Percival Harefield And The Golden Rectangle

A historical walk through King’s Cross based on William Blake’s Golden Quadrangle. The route explores the enigmatic story of Thomas Percival Harefield, along the way visiting some significant places in a life lived, as far as we know, entirely within the King’s Cross/St. Pancras/Islington locality. Largely forgotten today, but a celebrity in his lifetime among artists and writers including Ruskin, Yeats, Burne Jones, Rossetti and Arthur Machen. Start Point: Cubitt Gallery, Angel Mews

Katherine Midgley
Beneath Your Feet

The route follows the path of the River Fleet. This ancient tributary of the Thames once flowed over ground, but has since been channelled beneath the pavement and has been everything from a sacred site to an open sewer. Along the route you can see signs of the rivers presence and other hidden clues to the history of King’s Cross. A full text to accompany this walk can be downloaded below. Start Point: Oustide the Constitution Pub,42 Saint Pancras Way
