LONDON UNDERGROUND HISTORY
Take a closer look
St.John’s Wood is one of four stations on the Underground network to feature tiles designed by artist Harold Stabler. These decorative tiles are interspersed with plain tiles throughout the station - see how many of them you can spot!
Ten of Stabler’s tile designs represent the coats of arms of the Home counties. The eagle pictured at far right is a representation of Bedfordshire. At top is the crown and three Saxon weapons representing Essex. The stag, pictured at centre, is an interpretation of the coat of arms of Hertfordshire, while the five martlets at bottom represent Sussex.
