This is the third and final post on Cockfosters station, at the eastern end of the Piccadilly Line, following the series that took us from Finsbury Park through Arnos Grove for the actual anniversary of opening on 19th September 2017, and then further instalments covering Southgate, Oakwood and finally Cockfosters. Here we take a look at the latter station’s main environs including the mini bus station, entrances, roundels, and briefly the depot and its sidings.

This is the second part of the Cockfosters article. The first briefly looked at the station’s design and Holden’s intentions with regards to how the station was actually going to be designed.
Despite being the butt of many a joke, ‘Cock Fosters’ as it once was, is a real place and noted for being the northern terminus of the Piccadilly Line. The location itself prior to the opening of the tube was not even a major settlement of any sort, just a small school and a vicarage. This was both in deepest Middlesex and Hertfordshire.
