Sister stations

Edwin Henry Horne was responsible for the house style of the North London Railway’s revamped stations in the 1860s-70s. In all he designed seven stations, along with numerous other buildings on NLR land, including several in the vicinity of Highbury and Islington.

Sadly very few survive – notably Camden Road station, Hackney Central station – where the main station building has now been converted into a nightclub. They give a good sense of the grandeur of Horne’s architecture. Also worth a look is the stationmaster’s house, which still stands next to Canonbury station.
