Aldwych November 2003

In November 2003 members of CHTL were fortunate enough to visit the disused station at Aldwych. Lightly used since opening the station retains many original features. For a detailed history of the station and an excellent collection of photographs a visit to the London Underground History site is recommeded.

Since closure in 1994 the station has been used as a film location on many occasions. The Cravens unit visited the branch in the summer of 2002 during the making of a drama for Carlton TV.

Looking up in one of the lift shafts.

Aldwych station was never completed; the public never used some sections of the station. Some tunnels remained un-tiled

Filming had been taking place on the day of our visit.

A train of '72 TS has been stored on the branch for several years. When not in use for filming it is stabled in the crossover tunnel just south of Holborn.

Recently some sections of the station have been repainted for filming.
