    Default Euston disused underground Permission Tour September 2017


    Another "Hidden London" tour,this time it was Euston underground photography tour.Probably my favourite tour so far that although started in the old building on Melton Street,actually began and ended through a service door on the live platform of Euston underground.
    Wee bit of history from Wiki:
    Euston was constructed as two separate underground stations. Three of the four Northern line platforms date from the station's opening in 1907. The fourth Northern line platform and the two Victoria line platforms were constructed in the 1960s when the station was significantly altered to accommodate the Victoria line. Plans for High Speed 2 and Crossrail 2 both include proposals to modify the station to provide interchanges with the new services which basically mean the old building will be demolished.
    We visit two areas that date from 1962 and 1967.

    Some of you may recognise this on Melton Street


    This section from 1962, houses equipment used for the current HS2 works


    This section was from 1967


    I did a little digging to identify some poster remains


    And found the original


    This took some finding


    The actual poster


    Enough nonsense..this is an air shaft but built exactly the same size as the present day tunnels.




    From the other end..11 feet 8 inches of tunnel


    Old ticket office


    The other side of this bricked up tunnel is the live side!


    There are a few more pics to see here:

    This tour,although pricey is well worth doing as there are only 8 persons split into groups of 2 with a guide so no getting peeps in your pics!

    Nice photos and I also love the old movie posters, worth your while searching. But I went one better Marriage on the Rocks = 1965 is about an adman's wife winds up wed to his buddy after a quickie Mexican divorce and marriage. Operation CIA = 1965 is about a U.S. agent traces a lost message in Saigon and finds a plot to assassinate the U.S. ambassador. Conspiracy of Hearts = 1960 is about a nun in an Italian convent who helps the Jews to escape.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
