Stairway to Heaven

The worst disaster on the London Underground happened just over 70 years ago, when 173 people died in the crush of a panic in the blackout, during the war. This memorial has taken this long to put up. The monument is covered with snippets of the memories of people of the event, to which individual recollections and tributes have been added. It is very moving, I recommend you make the effort to visit, sit and consider. Read more on Diamond Geezer who was there on the opening day.
