This is the Bakerloo line terminus, the 25th and last station. The station has two entrances/exits. The main one leads to Wealdstone High Street whilst the other takes you in the direction of Harrow.
It is a large station building with a clock tower, establishing itself as a building of note.

The police station built in 1908 is probably the most attractive building on Wealdstone High Street but it has been sold off to developers. With the approval of Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, a number of police stations have been sold. No doubt this beautiful building will be demolished and blocks of flats built on the land.
A feature of the town is the War Memorial built in the 1920s in memory of all those men from the local area who lost their lives in the first World War. It was damaged during WW2 but repaired and then restored in 1970.
This is a modern war memorial outside the Civic Centre. It was erected in 2005 and the inscription reads: In grateful memory of all the citizens of the Borough and from around the world who gave their lives so that others might live in freedom. Let those who come after ensure they are not forgotten.
Harrow Central Mosque, one of the largest in the UK was opened in 2011.
The Jaspar Foundation, based in Stanmore, planned to turn the former Harrow Magistrates Court, in Rosslyn Crescent, Wealdstone, into a day care centre and flats but after a visit by councillors and council officers last year it was discovered that it had made unauthorised alterations to the interior of the building, leaving some historical features destroyed altogether.

Harrow shopping centre has the usual chain shops, coffee bars and pubs.
This statue caught my attention as something different. Unveiled in 1987, it is called Katie by James Butler. He was inspired by watching his daughter playing in the garden.
I feel a great sense of satisfaction at finally completing one out of 11 of the underground lines. Although the DLR and the Overground lines are on the iconic underground map, I have excluded them from my challenge as they mainly travel above ground. Of the 265 separate stations on the Underground system I am left with just 240 to visit! So off I go to start on the Central line with its 49 stations!
