End of the Line - Morden


The last station travelling south on the Northern line is Morden.  The station is the terminus for the black tube line which opened in 1926, in what was then the extension of the City and South London Railway.  As a result of the direct route to London (which is 8 miles form London) the population grew quickly and Morden changed from a small rural community to a thriving town.

That's quite the impressive array of crisscrossing tracks.

Often seen the name on the tube map but never been there.

You always think of the tube as being underground but quite a bit is in cutttings like this

I should have ridden to this location when I was there. After all, it was only five stops further than where I was staying. I did however take your advice and go to the end of the line up north to Amersham and I really enjoyed walking around that community. What a picturesque little spot.

That looks like a confusing jumble of tracks but picturesque none the less.
