005/270: #Arsenal – The Gunners

Originally another Leslie Green fronted station, Gillespie Road was upgraded in the 1930s when The Gunners moved to town.

The only station to be named after a football team, Arsenal is now a hybrid of Holdenesque Art Deco on the outside and classic Leslie Green at platform level.

Despite it’s significance, it’s a fairly modest affair and now shares the matchday workload with nearby Holloway Road (004). Look out for the fan segregation barrier that runs the length of the station passageways.
