London Underground ghost stations

[nerd]
Having gone through Down Street and British Museum stations no end of times without stopping (they're disused stations between Hyde Park Corner and Green Park and between Tottenham Court Road and Holborn), and knowing that Aldwych is no more as a functioning station, I was intrigued by a link published in The Independent last week.

http://www.howtobearetronaut.com/201...ion-tube-maps/

This shows disused and abandoned stations on the Piccadilly, Central, District, Metropolitan and Northern lines and tells why they aren't used any more. I have used some of them: Aldwych, Ongar and North Weald, the latter pair just before LT stopped service beyond Epping - OK, the reason for that journey was because it was the last chance for a Tube trip through the countryside.

It doesn't stop there. Looking at the comments, I saw this link:

Oh, dear. I had other plans for today ...
