Barbican Station

Barbican Undreground roundalI”m loving my trips to Barbican Station when visiting the library. The Hammersmith And City trains seem never-ending. I’m sure I could walk along it from station to station without it moving. Here at Barbican, the Underground is Overground, Well you can see daylight anyway if nothing else. Opening in 1865 as Aldersgate Street, its name has changed several times, through Aldersgate, Aldersgate and Barbican to the now familiar Barbican in 1968 I’m a little worried now. In 1866, three passengers were killed,a guard seriously injured and a passenger suffered severe shock after a girder fell on a train at the station. Perhaps I’ll walk a little faster
