Inside a Dream -

Another from the Ghost Station that is Aldwych Underground Station. To my surprise this year compared to last years tour, the tour guide said there was new bits of the station they could show us, never seen by the public before! As mentioned in previous Aldwych Station uploads of mine, Aldwych was heavily over engineered and was built a lot bigger than intended as it did have long term plans but sadly this never happened. When the station designers and architects that passenger numbers would not reflect the size of the station, they stopped building parts of the station and bricked it up. What your seeing here is an example of that, it was meant to be a passage way to one of the platforms but work just stopped and was left like this. I really like this type of architecture, very bare and genuine, some would say its sad in a way as it was never ever used by a passenger. Its great to see behind the tidy, clean shiny tiles you often see in tube stations and see the skeleton. This station is a testament to Victorian Engineering.
