Former Elstree South Underground Station (Never Used)


Barnet, United Kingdom (GB)
Elstree South was a planned tube station in London on the planned extension of the Northern line from Edgware (open) to Bushey Heath (never opened).

The stations and extension were planned and construction did start. However, WWII broke out and the plans were stopped and since then have been abandoned.

If the station had been built it would have had 2 platforms.

What's today:
As WWII broke out before the construction of Elstree South, nothing was ever built. The planned location of the station has now been occupied by an Esso petrol station.

An interesting video explaning the whole thing in more detail:
