St Pancras Chambers, London.
St Pancras Chambers is a Victorian gothic grade one listed former hotel known as ‘The Midland Grand’ holding 300 rooms which over look the St Pancras railways station. The building ceased to operate as a hotel back in 1935 and suffered internal decline under the occupation of National Rail who used the building for administrative purposes until it was entirely vacated in 1980.
Several intriguing deaths have occurred here over the years and during the late 1880’s a female was reported to have committed suicide by jumping off the staircase as a result of realizing she was pregnant, another body was discovered after having gone missing for two days one of the hotel workers who was found drowned in a water tank on one of the rooftops.
It has never been clarified whether there had been any sign of foul play or how his body came to remain undiscovered for so long.
The building is undergoing renovation and is expected to be completed for the opening of St Pancras station which will be the new home to the Eurostar by end of 2007.
