Site of railway bridge, Park Avenue, Wood Green
Site of railway bridge, Park Avenue, Wood Green
On either side of the road at the pedestrian crossing can be seen the abutments of a former railway bridge: this marks the course of the Palace Gates line, built by the Great Eastern Railway and running from Seven Sisters to Palace Gates, the latter very close to this point. Competition with the Great Northern Railway's route to Alexandra Palace (the modern East Coast Main Line) and, latterly, the Piccadilly Line, meant that the line struggled to earn its keep; it closed to passengers in 1963 and to freight shortly after.
