054/270: #WalthamstowCentral – The Backup

Walthamstow Central is one of my backup stations. When the Central Line is broken, this or Blackhorse Road (014) is where I’ll be headed. We’re 27 days into the year and I’ve used both…

A station existed here for nearly 100 years before the Victoria Line showed up. If the signs didn’t tell you where it was, you’d be forgiven for completely missing the ticket hall which hides beneath the Overground tracks to Chingford.

Long before the concept of Zone 3 existed, this area would have once been surrounded by fields and open countryside. It’s a far cry from the shiny new flats and developments that now surround and dwarf the quaint Victorian era station building.
