More from the past......

I`v had to wait a long time before putting these up, these were a series of visits to abandoned LUL stations back in 2008/09 we sort of had permission (sort of) as a member of subbrit you get from time to time to visit some very off limits sites, the guy who sorted out these has now retired and almost lost his job over them at the time.

The next location is the abandoned underground sub-station which is part of Embankment LUL station on the Northern line. As you walk along a normal passenger tunnel a small nondescript door in the wall leads in to a small office but with a thick steel blast door, once through this you find yourself in the old sub-station room, it very big and still with its overhead crane and bits and bobs of it former use scattered around.

Sit back and enjoy...

There was also a staff mess room with in the substation, basic but home to those who worked there.
