Hendon Central tube station

Hendon Central tube station is a London Underground station in north London on the A41.

The station is on the Edgware branch of the Northern Line, between Colindale and Brent Cross stations, and is on the boundary between Travelcard Zone 3 and Zone 4.

The station was design by architect Stanley Heaps and opened on the 19 November 1923 as the second station on the Edgware extension of the Hampstead Line from Golders Green. The station served as the temporary terminus of the line until 18 August 1924 when the second section of the extension to Edgware was opened. Hendon Central, like all stations north from Golders Green, is a surface station although the tracks enter twin tunnels a short distance to the north of the station on the way to Colindale.
