The Victorian Roof At Farringdon Station

Farringdon Station is Grade II Listed and has a Victorian roof dating from 1865. The roof is not a grand but a very practical affair.

As the pictures show, it won a Railway Heritage Board Award in 2015.

I wonder if Barbican station had a similar roof, as you can still see the remains of crudely cut off trusses, not unlike the those remaining at Farringdon station.

If the Barbican station roof should ever be recreated, perhaps something like the one, I wrote about in The New Roof At Crystal Palace Station could be used.

The two stations could be a tribute to Ancient and Modern
