St Pancras trainshed
In A History of Architecture, Sir Banister Fletcher writes, "The train shed, by the engineer William Henry Barlow in conjunction with R.M. Ordish, is the largest and most spectacular of the High Victorian period, being a single span of 243 ft, rising 100 ft high in a slightly pointed wrought-iron arch.
The total length is 700 ft. At the base, the arched vault is secured by rods 3 in in diameter under the platforms."
