SHEPHERDS BUSH (CENTRAL) STATION

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  CENTRAL LINE
DESCRIPTION + /

Shepherds Bush opened on 30th July 1900 as the western terminus of the Central London Railway's line to Bank. The station was designed by Harry Bell Measures and had a pinkish-brown unglazed terracotta facade. In the 1980s a scheme was undertaken to improve the appearance of the stations on the Central line. The Shepherd's Bush scheme, which was completed in 1985, was carried out by Chapman Lisle Associates and was based on a countryside theme. Julia King provided a mural entitled 'Town and Country' for the ticket hall, in which urban images are hidden in the shadows on the landscape. The ceiling was painted to suggest a blue sky.
