History of the Basin
This basin has a long history and now serves as home to the St Pancras Cruising Club. This basin is located just slightly west of St Pancras Lock and was once called the Midland Railway Basin. The Regent’s canal is located slightly north of central London and provides a link from the Grand Union Canal to the Limehouse Basin to the west and the River Thames in the east. The canal was constructed following the 1812 Act of Parliament that was passed to allow the canal to be built. From 1812 on for several years, there were many basins created. Some basins include the Limehouse Basin, Kingsland Basin, Wenlock Basin, and of course the St Pancras Basin; only a small number of these basins still exist today. In the late 1800s the St Pancras Yacht Basin was called the Midland Railway Basin. This is mainly because railroad controlled the land surrounding the basin. Today, the basin has been home to much construction due to its close proximity to King’s Cross. In fact, this 200 year old canal is located very close to the new Kings Cross International Train station that is home to high speed rail. If you are visiting the area, there are several canal cruises that will take you down the Regent’s Canal and inside the St Pancras Yacht Basin. These cruises allow visitors to see a side of Camden that is usually unseen. The canal literally runs right out back of the buildings lining the road, so the buildings are most commonly viewed by the front and the back. Since the basin is now home to the St Pancras Cruising Club the basin is not open to the public. If you are fortunate enough to visit the St Pancras Basin, you will find it to be a nice size and home to about 50 boats. There are a nice collection of vessels from small cruisers to a tug boat. The Cruising Club conducts business on an appointment only basis; it is suggested that you check with them before making a journey to the basin.
