For those of you who follow my blog regularly, you will know that I write a second blog, which for the last few years has focussed on a challenge I set myself. Living in London and having the benefit of a Freedom Pass (which means I can travel around the city for free), I decided to visit each of the 270 underground stations. I wanted to do more than just speed through them so I came up with the idea of finding out what places of interest are above ground, within easy walking distance of the station. I photograph everything I see and then come home and do some research, trying to find out as much as possible. I am fascinated by the history of the city in which I live and only wish I could remember everything I have read or written. I find it hard to believe that my first post was four years ago! I had hoped to complete this challenge within ten years but that seems highly unlikely, as I have only managed to visit and post about one third of the stations. However, I am loving the challenge and get quite excited when I am visiting a new station and area.
A number of you have suggested that I publish the posts. Being on the internet gives those who are interested access to the posts so I don't feel the need to go down the publishing route but I do get them printed for my own benefit.
I am aiming to visit 20 stations this year and am pleased that I have finished this one in the first week of the New Year. However I did visit and photograph it over a month ago. If you would like to find out more about this station and its surroundings read more here
