King's Cross Pond facing closure

Amid a sea of cranes, machinery and building noise, and a just a short walk from the railway station, lies the oasis that is Kings Cross Pond. Since it opened the pond has attracted attention from local and international swimmers, has provided a backdrop for numerous Instagram pictures and social media posts and has even been featured in a campaign by the Mayor of London.

Developers recently announced that on the 26th of October the pond will close. Charlotte Riley met with two local swimmers Ben Williams and Barbara Rich to talk about the potential loss of their beloved pond.
