- Redbridge tube station
The station was opened on
December 14, 1947. Construction had begun in the 1930s but was delayed by the onset of World War 2. During the war, the completed train tunnels at Redbridge were used by the Plesseycompany as an aircraftparts factory. The station building was designed by renowned Tube architect, Charles Holden, who also designed other stations on the same branch. Originally, the station was to have been named "West Ilford", then this changed to "Red House", before the final decision was made on "Redbridge" (also given in the plans as "Red Bridge".)
Redbridge is the shallowest deep level (as opposed to
cut and cover) station on the network; it is only 7.9m (26ft) beneath the surface.
The station is located at gbmapping|TQ418883.
It was also mentioned in the
Department Sepisode The Last Train To Redbridge.
