Inspired by the Subway project


Researching, recording and sharing the heritage of Crystal Palace subway

Do you have memories of Crystal Palace subway? Perhaps as part of the High Level station or when it was used as an air raid shelter. Maybe you played there as a child, attended Subway Superdays or went to parties there. Or some other use we haven’t even thought of yet…


Volunteers at the ‘Inspired by the Subway’ project would love to hear from you if you have any memories that you would like to share. We are trained in oral history interviewing and recording. We are collecting memories for an exhibition in September 2014 and all materials will professionally archived.


The project is also collecting photographs, film or video clips, plans, drawings, paintings and other materials relating to the subway. Originals can be placed in the London Metropolitan Archive where they will be protected for future researchers or materials could be scanned or copied to create a record that can be shared with other people.
