Oakwood, Southgate and Arnos Grove stations are three of the finest examples of Charles Holden’s innovative architectural style and the products of a seminal partnership Holden had with Frank Pick.

Learn how Pick’s idea of ‘fitness for purpose’ was applied consistently to the stations’ construction and compare these 1930s designs to the contemporary developments in the suburbs around them.
