This book is a concise and very easily read review of all the stations that have shut on the London Underground. Many closures are quite well known, but the book also looks at the stations which have been relocated and re-designed. I was surprised to learn that there are so many of these. The book explores each line seperately and discusses each station usually with interesting pictures. I would definately recommend this as a valuable insight into London's transport heritage

I found the book informative, well laid out & well researched.
It is interesting having seen some of the older stations dissapear to know something of their history and to have thought at different time "I wonder why there isnt a station here?" only to find there was.
The book includes a large & varied set of photographs, prints and early maps of the Underground.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly absorbing 24 Feb 2007
I really enjoyed this stroll through London's abandoned stations. Having heard of some, it was good to know more - when they opened, why they closed and all with pictures. I was also pleasantly surprised that many I hadn't known about can still be viewed by the observant onlooker if you know where to look. It was interesting to know about some of the stations and lines that were partially or fully built, only to be abandoned later on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too short 18 Oct 2004
That's the only complaint.
This little book is filled with pictures and anecdotes. It's an interesting, enjoyable read. You'll find yourself looking for ghost stations, trying to catch a glimpse of derelict premises as the train "flies" past them.
