St. Pancras Church is built of brick, faced with Portland stone and at an original cost of £89,296 was the most expensive church built in London since St. Paul's Cathedral.
The Tower of the Winds at Athens provides the inspiration for the octagonal tower.
The church is dedicated to a Roman boy, Pancratius who was martyred by Emperor Diocletian in 304 AD.
The church is one of the best examples of Greek Revival architecture in Britain, being greatly inspired by the architecture of the Acropolis in Athens with the portico being supported by Ionic columns.
An extensive two-year restoration on the church was undertaken, being completed in 1953.
