Chronoyster - 1 March 1880

On 1 March 1880, the District Railway extended from West Brompton to Putney Bridge

Fulham Broadway

then Walham Green

The original station building is now "Market Hall", containing bars and restaurants.

The main entrance to Fulham Broadway station is now part of a shopping centre.
The control room overlooks the ticket gateline.
I visited during the recent World Cup (the day after England beat Sweden) - note the flags of competing nations hung on the wall.

A walkway between the shopping centre and its car park allows you to look down into the station.

Home of the fifth best football team in England.

Parsons Green

The well-hidden side entrance

Putney Bridge

Open stations: 57
