BOUNDS GREEN Piccadilly line
some Tube history from 

Although this is a perfectly pleasant area, with lots of small semi-detached Victorian houses, I would say that it is only worth visiting if you are interested in Tube history. The station is classic 1930’s Charles Holden modernist style with a hexagonal ticket hall that is unique on the Underground network. There are also some glorious large deco floor lamps.  It had to be partially rebuilt after a bomb penetrated the tunnel in October 1940 wrecking a platform and killing a number of people. A plaque at the north  end of the west bound platform records this dreadful event. Details here.
This is just one walk from the many to be found at London Tube Rambles. There are architectural gems, beautiful country views, historic places and quirky buildings even in the most unpromising areas covered by outer London Underground stations. Usually the discoveries are within a mile of the Tube - often only five minutes walk away.
