USS stands for underground’s secret search, and it is about exploring things around London’s underground station. Read more about it in my introduction: https://dominiksymonowicz.com/2017/07/07/uss-dominik-underground-secrets-search-introduction/
This station was open in 1923. I visited this station on 12.01’2019. At the time of writing this blog, I visited 12 stations this year (4%). Since I started this project, I visited 66 stations (24%), and I passed 167 stations. (62%). I travelled 51% stations of Central line so far.
This station is in zone 3 and belongs to London Borough of Ealing which is in the west part of the London. The station looks very unloved. It is a shame because it is one of these stations that unique character. It has this beautiful combination of wood and concrete but requires some decent refurbishment.
I like the design of this platform as it has a beautiful half open waiting room full of wood seats, old sign of platform and few other.
The main building looks like an entrance to some underground laboratories where scientist performs some experiment on radioactive zombies that will someday escape.
When I left this station, I discover I am in Japantown of some sort. I saw a Japanese shop, Japanese restaurant, Japanese property management and place offer Japanese services. There is no coffee shop or pub. There are no any walks, but it is worth walk around as this area is full of beautiful houses that reminds me, Chester.
Any interesting historical events and Trivia:
- It was served by District line in the past.
- The station is a Grade II listed building.
Is any Good restaurant nearby?
I haven’t been there yet, but I saw excellent reviews of this place. It was very busy when I passed.
