Palace Gates Wood Green

These steps alongside a short surviving (but derelict) section of trackbed of the former Palace Gates branch (on right) in north London, were provided to allow passengers quick access to the trains from the residential area centred on Park Avenue. After the line closed, the steps were retained to continue to provide a more convenient pedestrian route between the Park Avenue area and the new residential estate built on and around the former Palace Gates Wood Green terminus, as well as to the nearby GNR's Wood Green (now Alexandra Palace) station and which is still open. This view is looking towards Park Avenue on 8th May 2021. The line crossed Park Avenue by bridge, just to the right of the bottom of the steps, but which has long since been demolished, only the abutments remaining (see one of my previous pics for a view of those).
