DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This is a T-shaped passage with the leg running west from the Station Place entrance, past the steps to/from the Underground platforms. The cross passage runs north from the Seven Sisters Road entrance, across the west end of the leg before veering left (northwest) past the north concourse, to Wells Terrace.

The passage from the Station Place entrance has a metal rail along the middle of the section between the concourse and the steps to platforms 3 - 4, which are at the bottom of the slope. The passage slopes up again, the steps to/from platforms 1 - 2 are just beyond the top of the slope, the passage from the right is before (east of) that on the left (south).

The passage continues west, to a T-junction. Right, (north) is signed "to Wells Terrace, buses to Crouch End, Muswell Hill and Alexandra Palace." The left, (south) is signed "way out to Seven Sisters Road; buses to Camden Town, Clapton, Hackney and Haringey."

Turning right, (north) at the T-junction, the passage slopes upwards and has a metal rail along the middle. The passage veers left (northwest) before you pass the north concourse which is on your right, (northeast). Note, this passage is about 50 metres long.
