Located within 10 minutes walk of King’s Cross station, the two-storey brick school-keeper’s house had fallen into disrepair and remained vacant for five years. With substantial grants from English Partnerships, the National Lottery Charities Board, King’s Cross SRB Partnership and the Lotus Relief Charitable Trust it has now been restored and enlarged to a high standard.
