It seems not a week goes by without somewhere in London being under threat from the arrival of Crossrail or its sequel, Crossrail 2. This week, heritage campaigners The Victorian Society have warned that if the proposed route for Crossrail 2 gets the green light, it could mean demolishing several Grade II-listed buildings across the city. Buildings at risk include a Grade II-listed 1909 building on the corner of Rathbone Place and Oxford Street, an early nineteenth century terrace including the Grade II-listed 64 Eversholt Street in Euston and the Three Johns pub on White Lion Street in Islington. But the plans aren't set in stone (yet) – TfL is currently holding a consultation on the route for Crossrail 2. Have your say before it closes on January 8.
