088/270: #FinchleyRoad – The Glacier

I’ve been struggling for weeks to come up with a title for Finchley Road. I mean sure there’s history here, we’re still of course in the realms of Metropolitan Railway grandeur. And yes, though grubby, the station frontage is interesting in its own right but there is to an extent only so much I can bang on about Victorian Railway mania or oh look how lovely is that facade’…

So instead here’s a fact for you:

According to earth analysis as part of a recent BBC documentary, Finchley Road station marked the southern most point of a glacier that once covered most of the country in Ice Age Britain. Huh!

Any comparison to the speed of a glacier and the Jubilee Line are purely coincidental.
