A dramatic and controversial plan for a steeped roof for the new Old Street tube station has been scrapped following feedback from Islington Council.
GTR is also upgrading and replacing all the way-finding and station name signs, a lot of which were installed in either British Rail Network South East days or earlier franchises and were grubby.
Plenty of people pass it by, thinking little of this tall column that stands near the junction with Old Street, but it's an impressive Victorian drinking fountain.
Just to the south of Old Street can be found one of London's oldest and greatest burial grounds, and one with a most unusual history.
Plans to revamp the tired Old Street roundabout have taken a small step forward, with a call for a design proposal to be set in to Islington council.
The weather forecast is good, so what could be a better way to spend a Tuesday evening than sipping a cup of Pimms while watching a demonstration of military prowess on a cricket ground?
