Sir John Soane's mausoleum at St Pancras Old Churchyard

Past the Natural Park, Camley Street curves under the railway leaving St Pancras station. On the other side of the bridge you come to St Pancras Old Church.

This is an ancient religious site in an atmospheric part of London, though the church is probably not Christ's resting place.

In the churchyard you can find the mausoleum Sir John Soane designed for himself. If it looks a little familiar it is probably because Giles Gilbert Scott, who designed the first GPO red telephone box, was a trustee of Sir John Soane's Museum in Lincoln's Inn Fields at the time.
