Art Deco: Arnos Grove to Southgate

Day nine of London’s Inner Circle , a photo-walk roughly following the North and South Circular roads in an anti-clockwise direction from Greenwich, follows part of the Piccadilly line extension. The walk starts at Arnos Grove tube and ends at Southgate. Both stations are wonderful examples of Charles Holden‘s art-deco architecture, and in fact this whole slice of north London suburbia is full of art-deco gems – like the beautifully simple yet stunning houses on Abbotshall Avenue.
