It has taken nine years, thousands of people and over 50 million man-hours to build. It has delivered over 109km of new high speed railway and created a truly world class station at St Pancras International. High Speed 1 is the first major new railway in the UK for over 100 years, and the first high speed line this country has ever seen."

To capture the magnitude of this project, London & Continental Railways commissioned photographer Brian Griffin to record the work that has gone into the building of HS1. Working with Art Director, Greg Horton, Brian has created a visual history of the project and the people that made High Speed 1 a reality. for more information on the exhibition and book.
