Welcome to a Tour of five of London's abandoned (or Ghost) Tube Stations, out of (at least) 40 Overground and Underground stations which are still in existence but no longer used for travel. York Road station (above) has a cache GC6KC9Z.
Some station buildings are still standing, converted into other uses or abandoned, while others have been demolished and their sites redeveloped. Stations were closed for a variety of reasons from low passenger numbers to re-routing but many have interesting histories.
Many stations were used during WWII as public shelters, underground offices for government staff, and storage of cultural treasures (in WWI the National Gallery collection and in WWII British Museum artefacts were stored in Aldwych Station, which has a cache GC8VHGE).
The stages are spread out but all are fairly close to Tube Stations and can be done in any order. Suggested route: KWS to Mark Lane to Down Street to Marlborough Road to British Museum Station. There is a Bonus cache (GC9HY8A).
