II

London Underground station. Designed in 1936 by Charles Holden but not opened until 1939. Reinforced concrete post and lintel construction, exposed at platform level, red and grey brick diaper infil, much of it loadbearing. Flat concrete roof slabs treated as broad cornice band under deep eaves. Symmetrical composition on bridge. Double entrance between single-storey shops with curved frontages leads into square double-height ticket hall. Single-storey passage at rear, whence stairs under stepped enclosures with clerestorey glazing descend to integral platforms. The platform buildings set back under deep canopies with clerestorey glazing; at their ends curved waiting rooms. Original bronzed glazing and curved door to 'The Bakery', kiosk west of entrance. Fenestration of other shop altered. Above both impaled open roundels with original signage 'UndergrounD'. Rest of glazing to station metal with horizontal emphasis. Ticket hall with full-height clad tripartite glazing to front and back, and circular top-light in exposed concrete ceiling. It is clad in black tiles at ground floor level. Piers on platforms have small, square, brown tiles. Original clocks on both platforms, with Roman numerals in faces. Doors to waiting rooms also original, as is the glazing, though the horizontal bars have been removed. Included as a complete and unique example of Holden's later evolution of the Sudbury Town style of station, lighter and more Scandinavian in feel than the earlier versions.
