Summary : Part of the huge area chosen for redevelopment by British Rail in 1986. Much of the site was made up of the sprawling Kings Cross Goods Yard some 58 areas of warehouses, sheds, stables, offices and sidings. This was laid out by the Great Northern Railway Company in the early 1850s. This vast complex, designed to service the goods side of the company's business expanded throughout the 1850s and 1860s, and was partially restricted and upgraded in the late 1890s. Kings Cross Goods Yard continued in use throughout the early and mid 20th century - minor additions and alterations being efforted - but was abandoned by British Rail in the 1980s. The redevelopment site was also dissected by the Regents Canal, opened 1820, and incorporated the two main-line railway termini on the Euston Road, Kings Cross Station and St Pancras Station. The ambitious proposals for the redevelopment of the area made by the London Regeneration Consortium were abandoned after the property market collapsed in the late 1980's. But following the decision to make St Pancras the site for the international terminal for the Channel Tunnel high-speed rail link the area has once again become the subject of a regeneration scheme. Selective recording of the area and some of the buildings was carried out by the RCHME between 1990-1999. The records of individual sites have been indexed separatley but have been associated with the Kings Cross redevelopment area record.
