'Housing is not enough'

Attention has also to be paid to the whole environment from art and community facilities to open spaces. The quotation and approach come from the parish priest for the area behind St Pancras Station in the 1920s where he established the St Pancras Home Improvement Society which continues as a Housing Association today. At the beginning of a Half Term trip to London we not only visited the Station but also delved around in the streets behind and found these examples of the public art he inspired. They are the tops of washing lines, and in this case represent St Nicholas after whom the particular block of flats is named.
