At Crystal Palace, hidden from view, is a Victorian vaulted subway which once linked the former High Level Station with the Crystal Palace itself, passing under the Crystal Palace Parade. It has remained closed for many years but attempts are currently being made to reinstate public access.
In September 1983 the Subway was opened for one day only in an event dubbed “Subway Superday” at which I took this dodgy picture.
Recently the “Friends of the Crystal Palace Subway” appealed via Twitter for photo’s relevant to the Subway. In a rash moment I submitted said picture & now find myself asked to be included on the guest list for a test opening to gain Council approval for Public access.
