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 the paving to one terrace have been carried out, and repairs to flank walls are currently in progress. Discussions are ongoing to secure full repair as part of the park's wider regeneration plan.
