Northern link speed dating

Rated 3.83/5 based on 610 customer reviews

Despite its name, it does not serve the northernmost stations on the network, though it does serve the southernmost station, Morden, as well as 16 of the system's 29 stations south of the River Thames.

There are 50 stations in total on the line, of which 36 have platforms below ground.

The CCE&HR (commonly known as the "Hampstead Tube") was opened in 1907 and ran from Charing Cross (known for many years as Strand) via Euston and Camden Town (where there was a junction) to Golders Green and Highgate (now known as Archway).With the exception of Morden and Clapham South, where more land was available, the new stations were built on confined corner sites at main road junctions in areas that had been already developed.Holden made good use of this limited space and designed impressive buildings.It extended the CCE&HR line from its terminus at Golders Green to Edgware in two stages: to Hendon Central in 1923 and to Edgware in 1924.The line crossed open countryside and ran on the surface, apart from a short tunnel north of Hendon Central.
