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

The Subway was designed by Charles Barry Junior and opened in 1865. It provided a direct link from his High Level Station (demolished 1961) into the Crystal Palace via a ticketing hall. The hall is now roofless, and the spectacular diaper brickwork of the subway vaulting is suffering from long-term water ingress. Historic England funded a condition survey in 2014 and is providing grant aid for a full repair project, funded primarily by the London government's Strategic Investment Pot, with support from the Friends of Crystal Palace Subway. Repairs are due to commence later in 2021.
