Kings Cross Lost property
KingsXLost - Thursday 23 July Start 6.30pm-8.30pm Birdcage Sculpture beside the German Gymnasium, St Pancras Way, London NIC 4TB
Rethinking Cities' Museum of Walking are teaming up with Tom Bolton author of Vanished City and Lost Rivers for London to create a participatory walkshop for you to uncover some of the hidden and overlooked layers of history that lurk in and around Kings Cross. Once an emblem of urban decline, this former thriving industrial site is now being spruced up as a knowledge centre and a 'must place' to which to relocate. Kings Cross can lay claim to being the Dead Centre of London. Throughout the decades this area has been through the mill of mis-representation but let's not tell you too much more, as on this outing you are going to be doing the investigation in the myths and truths of this extraordinary area.
See familiar places from a new angle, get your feet wet in the River Fleet, discover hidden gems and vantage points to see into this neighborhood's (in)glorious past - let's discover what has Kings Cross lost?
Tom will be signing copies of his books. A special discount for the books will be made available to those on the walk.
Thursday 23 July Start 6.30pm-8.30pm Birdcage Sculpture beside the German Gymnasium, St Pancras Way, London NIC 4TB
