            The impressive bronze statue "Meeting Place" by Paul Day at London's magnificent St Pancras International railway station, England's terminal of the Eurostar train service to Paris. The 3D frieze around its base is a brilliant work of art of consummate skill. Nearby is sculptor Martin Jennings's lifelike statue of Sir John Betjeman the Poet Laureate, by whose efforts the station was saved from demolition in the 1960s. On its completion in 1868 the station became the largest enclosed space in the world. was restored in an £800 million project, completed in 2007. Designed by engineer William Barlow in 1863, it is now a Grade 1 Listed Building, one of London's best. Antony Gormley, Richard Dorment and others in the art establishment hate 'Meeting Place'. I disagree.
