Crystal Palace Subway

£7,110 of £7,000 goal

Raised by 239 people in 39 months
The Crystal Palace Subway is a stunning underground heritage site in London SE19.

It was 150 years old in December of 2015 and it is holding up a 4 lane road between the Arqiva transmitter and the local bus station.

The subway has a lively history from being built in 1865 as a subway from the high level station to the Crystal Palace to becoming an air raid shelter, a venue for ‘Subway Superdays’, illegal raves and filming for movies and TV. Please see our website  for lots of info and some great stories from the subway.

We have, with your help and other generous funders, completed reinstating safe pedestrian access on the Southwark side of the subway and we have now opened this side for two open house weekends with 3500+ visitors each year.

Further donations will be used for other minor works and information for visitors. More importantly funds will be used as seed funds for activities or to pay for support for diverse members of the community to attend activities.

What we need most now is help so if you would like to volunteer or have PR, finance, social media skills you can share with us please contact us via our website.

I forgot to say that as this isn't a public opening the site won't be signposted. The new gate is just past the bus stop on crystal palace parade heading towards the transmitter - on the opposite side from the bus station.

Just watched the subway documentary - thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for the preview. I managed to finally see the subway during the 2015 Open House, and hope to do so again in 2016.

Today I was at the train station, which in itself is a beautiful piece of architecture. I have not so far been able to visit the subway on Ooen House weekend but I wish the campaign every success.
