Warren Street station history

Warren Street station opened in 1907 as part of the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway - now the Northern line.

The station was originally known as Euston Road until its name was changed to Warren Street the year after it opened.

Warren Street was similar to other deep tube stations designed by architect Leslie Green, featuring his trademark oxblood terracotta faience exterior. It was entirely rebuilt in the early 1930s to accommodate the installation of escalators.
Designed by the architects Charles Holden and Stanley Heaps, the curved brick exterior of the station is reminiscent of the geometric forms stations to be found on Holden’s Piccadilly line extension of the 1930s.

In 1968, the ticket hall was rebuilt when the Victoria line was routed through the station. At platform level, the seating alcoves feature a maze tile motif by the design partnership of Crosby Fletcher Forbes, inspired by the ’warren’ of the station’s name.

In a typical year, more than 18 million journeys start or end at Warren Street station.

Comments:
A venture of the City of London, Transport For London, and the London’s Transport Museum. In this project, which is usually located in the subway stations, a sign is displayed on each platform with the history of the current train station, or a page in the history of the London Underground. The signs are next to the other signs with train line maps or advertisements.

The current sign is at Warren Station with a historical description of the station.

The station where the sign was located was photographed that day Click for a larger image

The number that appears on the sign frame is probably the serial number of the sign.
