Anonymous. [Antique plan of the new Sand Hills Estate, St Pancras]

A plan of the Sand Hills Estate, which straddled what is now the Euston Road, with each house delineated. The part north of the Euston Road has now been redeveloped with the British Library and King's Cross Station, but south of the road much is recognisable but renamed: Euston Road is simply 'The New Road'; Cartwright Crescent is named here 'Burton Crescent'; and Hastings Street is 'Spelhurst Street'. Judd Street and Leigh Street have retained their names. The estate was developed by The Skinners' Company, a medieval trade guild of the furriers, one of the 'Great Twelve' livery companies of London.
