Greening Phoenix Road

Phoenix Road runs through the middle of Somers Town, connecting Euston Station and Saint Pancras Station, and running past the Crick Institute.

It is commonly used by people walking between the two stations, and will probably get busier after the upgrades to Euston Station.

It is fair to say that some parts of the route could do with a makeover – but what should they do? Have your say!

Cecil Rhodes House in Somers Town to be renamed

Residents in Cecil Rhodes House have voted to rename the building Park View House, after the building’s views over St Pancras Gardens.

Cecil Rhodes is a controversial figure, to say the least, these days. He believed in expanding the British Empire, and that white Europeans were the “supreme race”. He was Prime Minster of the Cape Colony (now South Africa), and the country of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) was named after him. He founded the De Beers diamond company to exploit Africa’s mineral wealth, and he established the Rhodes Scholarship. A statue of him in Oxford is to be taken down this year after Black Lives Matter protests last year.
