Clapham North

Exterior of Clapham North station, LUL Northern Line, on 13th April 2013. It was opened by the City & South London Railway on 3rd June 1900 as Clapham Road and was renamed Clapham North on 13th September 1926 when the line was extended from Clapham Common to its ultimate southern terminus at Morden. The line then became known as the Morden-Edgware Line until renamed Northern Line in 1937, notwithstanding that it has this lengthy section in south London! This station is one of only two surviving with a narrow island platform in a single tunnel, the other being Clapham Common, one stop south. The others, also on the Northern Line, at Euston (Bank branch) disappeared during the construction of the Victoria Line in the 1960s while that at Angel was completely rebuilt in 1992 which saw the replacement of the lifts with escalators and the closure of the original 1901 entrance on City Road, replaced by a modern and much more spacious ticket hall on Islington High Street.
