048/270: #Oval – The Cricket

The outside of Oval has suffered from yet another uninspiring millennial refresh, so let’s instead dwell on what’s going on on the inside – which is a lot. This is another “garden” station with pleasing pot plants lining the perimetre walls of the ticket hall – perhaps the staff on this part of the Northern Line are all trying to out do their green-fingered neighbours. Other features include posters of Frank Pick, a mini library and it’s also been suggested that Oval was one of the original stations to post a “thought of the day” on their service update boards.

Yes. There’s certainly a lot going on…
