Designed by TP Figgis in 1900, Clapham North is one of two remaining stations that has an island platform, serving both the northbound and southbound lines.
Have you seen this artwork? What makes this station or area unique? Please add your comments and recommendations below.
the Labyrinth at Clapham North was almost completely hidden by a large plant making interaction with the artwork impossible. Surely somebody could have spoken to the station master who is clearly a keen gardener and arranged to have the artwork installed in a place that does not interfere with his/her horticultural interests. Also the Labyrinths at Aldgate and Oval stations were completely hidden by mobile notice boards on my visits; I get the feeling that LU station staff don’t fully understand (or care) about the concept of Labyrinth. At Elephant and Castle a member of station staff asked me what I was doing photographing the Labyrinth, when I tried to explain he just looked bewildered. On the up side I have now completed all of zone 1 with the exceptions of Cannon Street and Euston Square which don’t have Labyrinths yet
Artworks are currently installed at the following stations
