Church of St Pancras, Upper Woburn Place, Camden Town NW1 - Camden

Designed by H and HW Inwood, built in 1822 and restored in 1953. The earliest Greek Revival church in London. The west end has an Ionic portico to a vestibule with tower above. The north and south facades each have a tribune with a portico supported by four caryatids with a sarcophagus behind. Repairs to the west portico roof and surrounding stone parapets were completed in early 2016, with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The condition of the tower, front portico and caryatids has been investigated and all are in need of repair.
