Closed railway tunnel, Upper Sydenham
Closed railway tunnel, Upper Sydenham
This was once a railway line. The branch line to Crystal Palace High Level passed through the tunnel. The line was never very successful and when the Crystal Palace itself was destroyed by fire in 1936, the fate of the branch line was sealed. It struggled on until closure in 1954. The tunnel mouth at the former Upper Sydenham station is one of a number of relics of the railway which can still be seen today, more than half a century since the last train ran.
