Goodge Street 175 / 270

Goodge Street is one of eight London Underground stations that have a World War II deep-level air-raid shelter underneath them. The shelter was used as a base by the Allied Forces, and it was from here that General Eisenhower broadcast the announcement of the invasion of France in 1944.

Much of the BBC’s Doctor Who serial was set in this former shelter during the 1960s.

Nearby is the British Museum, the world’s oldest museum (founded in 1753) and London’s most visited attraction, with exhibits spanning two million years of history.

Visit Pollock’s Toy Museum, featuring six floors of toys from all over the world and different periods of time.

Munro bagging is a popular pursuit in Scotland as thousands have registered their ascent of all 282 mountains above 3,000 ft.
Does London have its Wallinger baggers? Photographing, finger walking the 270 labyrinths or simply being intent on viewing each of them whenever possible would each be a legitimate subterranean pursuit worthy of self recognition.

My first Labyrinth! I found 11 last Saturday on the Northern Line, but now know I missed some. I wish I’d looked on the website beforehand. Thank you Mark for giving me a challenge to photograph them all.
