16 Tube Stations Get Listed Status

English Heritage has confirmed that 16 London Underground stations have been given Grade II listed status, marking them as 'particularly important buildings of more than special interest'.

The selection features many glazed tile stations, such as Belsize Park, Chalk Farm and Covent Garden, with their familiar 'ox-blood' colour scheme devised by Leslie Green.

As a point of accuracy, the list comprises 15 Tube stops, with two separate Oxford Street entrances taking the total to 16 buildings.

The list in full: Aldwych, Belsize Park, Brent Cross, Caledonian Road, Chalk Farm, Chesham, Covent Garden, Hendon Central, Oxford Circus (two separate buildings), Perivale, Redbridge, Russell Square, St John's Wood, West Acton and Wood Green.

In addition, Arnos Grove, Oakwood, and Sudbury Town, modernist works by Charles Holden, have been upgraded from Grade II to Grade II*.
