Pedestrian subway under Crystal Palace Parade, Crystal Palace SE19 - Bromley

Pedestrian subway, circa 1854, that once provided access from the now-demolished Crystal Palace High Level Station directly into the Palace. It has a fan-vaulted roof, with roundels between fans in red and cream brick with diaper patterning. A condition survey and investigative works have been carried out, grant-aided by Historic England. Repairs to one terrace are planned imminently. Discussions are ongoing to secure full repair as part of the park's wider regeneration plan.
