Mill Hill East to Highbury & Islington, Northern Line and Overground, TfL Run Project   1 comment

 

Saturday morning brought a desire to do some damage to the remaining bits of the TfL Run Project.  The Northern Line and the Overground have lingered long in this effort and I left the house before sunrise on a bus to Mill Hill Broadway to start.

 

 

From beneath the bleak M1 Motorway flyover where the bus terminated, I ran.

 

 

Several things made me laugh about this:

 

 

Shortly, Mill Hill East emerged and the first segment of the day began.

This railway bridge is fairly impressive:

 

 

Finchley Central, East Finchley, and Highgate Stations soaked in the sunrise:

and, a second, more impressive bridge presented itself:

 

 

Archway was a bit hard to find (I stood with an advert display between me and the station looking everywhere except where it sits).  Tufnell Park was a little more obvious:

I wasn’t sure this place actually existed, but there it was (and is): the Ladies & Gents Bar house in a former public toilet (definitely on the short list, now):

 

 

Kentish Town and Camden Town were the last of the Northern Line for the day:

From there, I looped back up to Gospel Oak to fill in a little of the Overground:

 

 

On the way to Gospel Oak, this old public bath, pool, and sauna looked awesome in the early-morning, mid-winter light:

Kentish Town West, Camden Road, and Caledonian Road & Barnesbury stood between me and the finish:

The Henry Hicks memorial outside the prison was perplexing:

 

 

Finally, I made it to Highbury and Islington Station for the ride home.

Watched over by the ghost of Henry Hicks on the walls of the station:

 

 

The rest can be done in as few as 2 or 3 runs, now:
