District and Circle Line cutting, from Bedford Gardens
District and Circle Line cutting, from Bedford Gardens
The earliest London Underground lines, most of which are now part of the Circle Line's route, were built by cut-and-cover, shallow cuttings subsequently arched over, rather than by deep level boring: at points the cutting is exposed to the light like this.
An exposed section of line like this, and a house window overlooking it, play a crucial part in a Sherlock Holmes story, "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans".
