St Pancras Hospital
St Pancras Hospital
This was once St Pancras workhouse, built in the 1880's, see LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
It is now a rehabilitation hospital but many of the old buildings have been retained in use.
In 1961 the poet Sylvia Plath had an appendectomy here in a ward overlooking Old St Pancras cemetery and she subsequently wrote her poem 'Tulips' from notes she made at the time.
