John Betjeman and St Pancras: Literary London #1

St Pancras International railway station, Euston Road, London, opened at the end of 2007, and to remember John Betjeman (1906-84), who was Poet Laureate from 1972 until his death, and who had struggled so much to keep the original station when it was under threat in the 1960s, it commissioned a sculpture of him. The statue stands within the station, and was sculpted by Martin Jennings.
