Thorpe Road Subway c.1905

The Thorpe Road entrance to the subway that was built by the Great Northern Railway after local protests at the death of a local who had been killed on the notoriously dangerous level crossing which was just out of view to the right. No doubt the smartly dressed gents were heading out for a stroll in Thorpe Park.

Today, this part of Thorpe Road has been renamed River Lane with the modern Thorpe Road crossing Crescent Bridge.
