Edgware (ZED)

Edgware is the terminus of the Edgware branch of the Northern Line in Barnet, North London.

Type: Transport for London
(Northern Line)
Station code: ZED
Opened: 1924
Platforms: 3
The station was opened in 1924 as the terminus of the Charing Cross, Euston & Hampstead Railway which was extended from Golders Green. Edgware did already have a mainline railway station, a LNER station which closed in 1939.

In the 1930s as part of the New Works Programme it was planned to continue the Northern Line (as it then was) as far as Bushey Heath and the line from Mill Hill East would have continued to Edgware. The Second World War and the shortage of funds afterwards, plus new Green Belt protection laws put paid to these planned extensions though they remained shown on tube maps until 1949 [1].

So Edgware has remained a terminus. It has three platforms, one open air and the other two under a shed roof. There are also stabling sidings for the Northern Line's 1995 Tube Stock when not in service [2][3]. The main station building was designed by Stanley Heaps and has retained it's Art Deco touches.
