Highgate Disused Tube Station
This station opened in the 1860s and is located directly above the current Highgate Northern Line low level station in North London. It closed to passengers in 1962 and remained in use for freight until 1954. The platform remains and there are are twin tunnel portals at either end of the station, the West tunnels still retaining parts of their tracks. The far ends of all four of the tunnel portals have been grilled to prevent access and allow an area for bats.
