Britain's secret homes

Post by BossHogg on 28/6/2013, 22:10

I've been watching this with interest, tonight's programme was talking about a couple of houses - 23+24 Leinster Gardens in Paddington, London that have never been lived in. 

This is the row of houses the houses are on.



They look very grand indeed.


Fancy ornate homes.


and the reason they've never been lived in?


It's a railway tunnel!!!

Spent 10 years driving tube trains through there. Very Happy Very Happy 

Its a Metropoliton line which also takes Hammersmith & City trains on their last trips to Wembley Park depot for the night.

It did have real curtains in the window until they cut back on staff looking after it.
