History~
Highgate station opened in 1867 as part of the Great Northern Railway's line between Finsbury Park and Edgware, in the north of the capital. Because of the hilly terrain, the station was built in a deep cutting excavated from Highgate Hill adjacent to Archway Road.

Tunnels penetrated the hillside at each end of the station, leading towards East Finchley to the north and Crouch End to the south. In the 1880s the station was rebuilt to have two tracks at either side of an island platform.
Highgate Underground station remains in use but the passenger service ceased to use the surface station in the early 1950s, although freight traffic continued until 1964

My deepest apologies for the dark gloomy photos.. Unfortunately it’s hard to get good photos at midnight on an iphone.

haha thats the old railway track, im talking about the platform to wait for trains
yeah that’s what the second photo is.. It’s not the main platform bit, it’s like when you walk right down to the end of the platform!
