The World Cup was a huge success for England, so it’s a shame that the country is losing its oldest memorial.
The Pitstone memorial halls at St Pancras and St Pancraeton are the only remaining halls in England.
They were built in 1885, when the Great Exhibition was in full swing.
There’s a great deal to admire about these buildings, including the sheer scale of the event.
But the Pit and the St Pancas Memorial Halls are in a different league from the Carthy Memorial Hall, which was built in 1911, and is also located in central London.
And while there’s been a lot of interest in the former, the Carthalys have suffered the most in recent years.
In fact, they have lost almost all of their memorial halls.
When the World Cups were being held in Germany in 2020, England lost the most, with three of the six stadiums hosting the matches.
England’s World Cup home stadium, Old Trafford, was also the most visited stadium during the tournament.
One of the most notable events of the tournament was when a fire broke out in the St Andrews Hall, the first of the new memorial halls in the country.
After that, it was the first time the English Football Association, which runs England’s domestic football, even mentioned the new facilities.
It’s clear that the two stadiums were very important to the sport and the local community.
However, the old facilities, which were built for the 1904 Olympics, are now gone.
We can only imagine what’s in store for the other two memorial halls when the next World Cup takes place.
As for the Carthan Memorial Hall?
It was built for England’s World War II victory in 1939, but it wasn’t used until after the war.
Nowadays, it’s the home of the national football team, and its name is a reference to the British soldiers who served in the Second World War.
St Pancras Memorial Hall is a bit of a mystery.
You may have guessed it from the title.
What is it?
The St Pancrase Memorial Hall has been in the National Theatre for the past 150 years, but the building was built to commemorate the famous battle between the Scottish and Irish armies.
This was the Battle of the Bulge, fought in 1916, when thousands of soldiers were killed by the Germans.
Some of the soldiers, including Lord Carthy, died in the battle.
Other soldiers, such as Sir Paul Fairbairn, who was wounded in the action, were buried at St Andrews.
According to the National Trust, the St Andrew’s Hall is now used for funerals.
Sadly, it seems that the new construction of the St Paul’s Hall isn’t going to make it to the next game.
