    Managed to bag some tickets for London's disused station, Aldwych. Not been south for a while, so got a nice early train down and had a good walk round for the day.

    Construction started on 21 October 1905 with demolition of the Royal Strand Theatre which occupied the site, it opened as Strand station on 30 November 1907.

    Both entrances had Piccadilly tube on their facades when the station opened. Not long afterwards, these were changed to Piccadilly RLY as the UERL disliked the word tube. The station was renamed Aldwych on 9 May 1915.

    The Aldwych service was suspended on 22 September 1940 and used as a shelter for the public during air raids. It opened again on 1st July 1946.

    The platforms and tunnels at Aldwych station are 92 feet and 6 inches below street level.

    From June 1958 the line began only in rush hours. It was eventually closed in 1994 when the original 1907 lifts needed urgent replacement and the cost could not be justified.

    Aldwych station and the trains have been used for many films, TV productions, music videos ( some listed below) and emergency services training.

    (Film)
    Superman 4
    Atonement
    V for Vendetta
    The edge of love

    The deep blue sea
    The Krays
    (Tv)
    Sherlock
    Mr selffridge
    (music)
    The Prodigys, firestarter

    A modified and expanded version of the station appears as a level in the video game Tomb Raider III

    The station was the subject of an episode of most haunted in 2002. Im not a fan of of the show, but it starts with history into the station, which is pretty good


    On with the pictures,

    Nice photos. Managed to avoid getting people in them too. I was guiding some of those tours and still didn't get time to walk round with a camera.
