Mr Monkey in London, 30th April

"Well, that's reassuring, isn't it?"

Mr Monkey looking at the lodges outside London Euston Mr Monkey reading the destinations carved on an old lodge of London Euston

When he arrived at London Euston Mr Monkey paused to look at the old lodges outside the station. These are all that's left of the magnificent arch and portico, built in 1838 to celebrate the completion of the London and Birmingham Railway and demolished in 1961 as part of British Rail's rebuilding of the station. Mr Monkey was interested to see the list of destinations from Euston carved into the walls of the lodge included his own destination, Stockport.

You can read about the arch at the Euston Arch Trust website.
