Clapham High Street

378 220 to Highbury & Islington arriving at Clapham High Street station on 9th December 2012, the first day of London Overground services at this station. This replaced the South London Metro service from London Bridge to Victoria so that any passengers from this station to Victoria thenceforth had to change at Clapham Junction. But with the long walks there between platforms, it is much quicker and easier to get from Clapham to Victoria by using the nearby Northern Line station at Clapham North and changing to the Victoria Line at Stockwell where same-level interchange and the minimum of walking is available. But Clapham residents still protested at the loss of their direct service to Victoria - and to London Bridge too.
