End of the line again (Watford)

By | June 23, 2013

So today we went off to Watford which is our new big shopping centre since we’ve moved. I quite like Watford, well bits of it anyway. There’s a Tiger Store which is great for stocking up on craft supplies and a John Lewis, need I say more?

Anyway, Watford is also home to a tube station, the Watford branch of the Metropolitan Line in Zone 7 (previously known as zone A). The station opened in 1925 , designed by Charles Walter Clark, and is lovely. The toddler was a bit confused because we drove there and didn’t actually get on a train. Perhaps he’s a bit too young to appreciate the architecture or just thought I was a bit silly to be so excited by the station.

Anyway, here’s the evidence.


In front of the station and taking a look at the trains.


The toddler was worried about why the train was empty, he wasn’t sure where the train driver had gone to have a cup of tea!

    The H12 route also connects Pinner tube station to Hatch End railway station , which was named Pinner & Hatch End between 1911 and 1920 before being renamed Hatch End (for Pinner) and then, in 1956, Hatch End.
