RAYNER'S LANE (west side) Rayner's Lane LRT Underground Station, including shops and platforms (including Rayner's Lane Station, Alexandra Avenue)

GV II London Underground Station with integrated shops and platforms. 1938 by Charles Holden and Reginald Uren.

Reinforced concrete post and lintel construction exposed at platform level; red brick infill, some load-bearing. Flat concrete roof slabs exposed as broad cornice band under deep eaves. Symmetrical composition on bridge over tracks. Single storey frontage to Alexandra Avenue features corner kiosks with original curved shopfronts; entrances to side lead through square double-height ticket hall to single storey rear bridge, whence stairs under stepped enclosures descend to platforms. Platform structures are integral with the hall, bridge and stairs, set back from the tracks under a deep concrete canopy on two levels divided by clerestory and with waiting area between metal screens at foot of stairs. Enclosed waiting rooms with curved ends.

All glazing save shop fronts metal with strong horizontal emphasis in glazing bars. Ticket hall has two two-light full height strip windows at front, four-light windows asymmetrically spaced at sides, seven-light full-height window at rear. Ticket hall lined in brick, with collector's booth and sign 'To the Trains.' Over the entrance shops two roundels impaled on poles bear the legends 'Underground' and 'Rayners Lane'. At platform level survive the original 'platform' signs and roundels fully lined out in black. On open part of platform, 22 original standard lamps; the platforms are bounded by the original concrete fence punctuated by eight slabs bearing roundels and poster boards. Included as a more complex variant on the Sudbury Town prototype, with greater maturity in the composition of its curved frontage layout. It is unusually rich in the survival of its signage and fixtures.
