English: Sculpted by Martin Jennings, the Bronze statue of John Betjeman in London's St Pancras station celebrates his role in helping save the station from demolition.

The statue stands in a disc of Cumbrian slate, inscribed in two rings. The inner ring is Betjeman's name and dates and the words “Who saved this glorious station”. The outer ring contains the sixth stanza from the poem Cornish Cliffs: “And in the shadowless unclouded glare / Deep blue above us fades to whiteness where / A misty sea-line meets the wash of air.”
