Abandoned Tube Stations



Tube Poster



The increased security levels in London mean that London Underground
are extremely unlikely to grant visits to their disused stations.
For those who have wondered what those old stations look like,
hopefully the following photos will be of interest. Trading on trend retracements

A word about this site:

It was originally just a means of doing something constructive with a box of old tube photos re-discovered during a clean out. The photos were all taken by the author between 1977 and 1981 (except where indicated).

However, far from being the 'create and leave alone' website envisaged, it has actually become quite organic; there are an increasing number of (very welcome) third party contributions being submitted and added to it - these are clearly labelled and accredited.

Contributors to this site are listed here.

As there is a high level of photographic content on this site, flashy graphics have been eschewed in favour of allowing faster loading of the webpages.



Most of the factual details were verified or obtained from the following excellent books: day trading platform in South Africa


J.E. CONNOR - Abandoned Stations on London's Underground (ISBN 0-947-69930-9)

J.E. CONNOR - London's Disused Underground Stations (ISBN 0-947-69929-5)

NIGEL WELBOURN - Lost Lines: London (ISBN 0-7710-2623-8)

They and many other books of historical interest are available from the bookshop at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden, which should be the first port of call for anyone wanting further information about London's abandoned stations.
