021/270: #HounslowWest – The Heptagonal

Back to Holden ways, Hounslow West was the original terminus of the line until the extension to Hatton Cross (022) opened in 1975. It features this uniquely heptagonal shaped ticket hall, and yes there are roundels stained into the glass on each of the seven corners (with the obvious exception of the street facing one which instead caries a 3D roundel on a flag pole).

As you can see, it’s rather popular with the local pigeons.
