About

St Pancras Old Church has been a site of Christian worship since the 4th century. It is thought that this church is on a site that has offered worship for more than 1700 years. Fragments of Roman material can still be seen here and there in the fabric of the current building. The monuments and reuse of stone chart the history of the church’s development over time. Spanning eight centuries since Fulcherius in the late 12th century the incumbents stretch down to the present day, Fr James Elston becoming the Team Vicar in 2012.

Our project aims to recover some of this 1600 years of history through archival and scholarly research, as well as building on the collective memory of a thousand years of parishioners and visitors to St Pancras. We hope that some of you reading this blog might have your own memories or family history to contribute, and we welcome stories, photos and whatever else you might have to share.

    What a wonderful website……I love visiting this amazing ancient Church and grounds…great to learn more about the people buried with and associated with the place, all the literary connections Hardy Shelley Wollstonecraft Godwin, …and at the very deepest layers St Pancras himself….and the earliest levels of worship. I only visit London once or twice a year ……and given all the delights London has to offer the visitor this place is really really special!
