City Road tube station

City Road Tube station on the London Underground is a disused tube station. It was on the line of the original City & South London railway's Euston extension, and was closed in 1922 when the rest of the line was renovated to allow full size tube trains. Always disappointing in terms of traffic, City Road was never reopened, and the island platform was destroyed when the tunnels were re-bored.

City road station is now virtually invisible from both the surface and underground - the only suggestion that a station ever existed is the lift shaft, with a brick surround, now forming a ventilation shaft on City Road itself.

The actual station was located about halfway between Old Street and Angel stations on what is now the Northern Line.
