Our Campaign

The Euston Arch Trust campaigns for the rebuilding of the Euston Arch. The first great monument of the railway age, it was demolished in the 1960s amid widespread protest. The proposed redevelopment of Euston Station now presents an opportunity to rebuild the Arch.

“The enormous popularity of the restored St Pancras, soon to be followed by a restored King’s Cross, has shown that celebration of the past and potential for the future are not mutually exclusive. The restoration of Euston Arch would restore to London’s oldest mainline terminus some of the character and dignity of its great neighbours.” Michael Palin

Euston Arch: Dan Cruickshank finds piece in the River Lea

In 1994 Dan Cruickshank discovered an estimated 60% of the 4,400 tons of the Euston Arch buried in the bed of the Prescott Channel at its junction with the Channelsea River that runs into the River Lea in the East End of London. The location of the rubble had been revealed by Bob Cotton, a British Waterways engineer, who stated that the rubble had been purchased in 1962 to fill a chasm in the bed of the Prescott Channel. A fluted section of a column was recovered from the river bed.
