Brilliant book about disused Underground stations
on 30 January 2003
A wonderfully informative book filled with pictures and information about all of the 'Ghost' stations on the many miles of the London Underground system.
'Ghost' stations are the Underground stations which are no longer in use. Some have disappeared totally, others have left traces which can be seen to this day when going by on an Underground train.
There's always been something fascinating about the Underground, whether it's the trains or just the underground passages, the thoughts of a subterranean area has always stirred inquisitive thoughts in people's minds.
This book is very entertaining and well worth the price as it provides an insight into the past aswell as the architecture aspects, such as the tunnelling and the buildings at street level. It gives information of the current situation of the stations (if part, or fully, intact) and to their locations, and also the condition of the overground stations and buildings (if they are there to this day, and what they are used for). This allows the inhabitants of and visitors to London the chance to further explore this fascinating subject.
