the secret station

This summer I was lucky enough to be given a ticket for the tour of one of London Underground's abandoned stations - The strand at Aldwych. It really was quite an extraordinary experience;  familiar yet utterly strange, we wandered down the tunnels, stood on closed platforms and learnt of the short but rich history of the debunked tube station. Awesome and slightly eerie, I have to say. Despite the low light and slight underexposures, I rather like what I took down there. Although most of us take it for granted today, the network's architecture and iconic design really is timelessly beautiful.
