TQ2892 : New Southgate Station

taken 8 years ago, near to Friern Barnet, Barnet, Great Britain

New Southgate Station
New Southgate Station
Originally this station was named Colney Hatch but in the 1880's the name was changed to New Southgate, along with that of the surrounding area, as Colney Hatch had become synonymous with lunatic asylums.

The station is now a shadow of its former self with the original ticket office removed and replaced by a portable cabin. The original Great Northern Railway foot bridge remains, but has gained grey steel sides which prevent views of the railway. It seems a little ironic that whilst the mainline railway has defaced its Great Northern Railway heritage, a short distance away the London Underground has maintained most of the buildings on the old GNR Northern Heights branch in near original condition.

Here we see a pair of Class 365 units on fast service to Kings Cross passing through the station at speed.
