Southwark Underground Station, London, England – http://bit.ly/1FZgNen

Probably one of my favourite, if not my favourite Underground station on the whole network. I just love the timeless modern architecture going on here at this station, its certainly stood the test of time as this station was built in 1999.

My favourite part of the station has to be this Obelisk in the middle of the two platforms, its stunning, certainly reminds me of a lighthouse. Its quite unique as I can’t think of this architectural feature anywhere else on the tube network, even on the newish Jubilee Line Extension stations.

Seeing stations like this built about 15 years or so ago gets me really excited about the brand new Crossrail stations, I bet they will be a great addition to London’s growing transport network and I am hoping that some of these stations will be available for a sneak preview during Open House London this year, fingers crossed!!

Southwark Underground Station, London, England – http://ift.tt/V5qrF7

Just back from a weeks holiday down in Devon, nice and relaxed. The weather was great for most part compared to here in North Yorkshire so I made the most of the Sun that we got down in Devon.

I did get a few photos which I will work through in the next few days but todays upload is from the vaults and is of Southwark Underground station. I love this view, one of my favourites within the station but for some reason it is a pig to get all lined up, I am not sure if its the spacing between the tunnel arches or the unusual patterns going on with the roof at the end but in the end I think I got it right.

I am really looking forward to my Underground ‘Ghost’ Station tour a week on Friday at Charing X, can’t wait to get some photos of that awesome station, well the closed Jubilee Part of it.

Oh also just to let everyone know, I have finally joined Instagram, yes I know I am a bit slow but if your on it and wish to follow me click the link below
