The 23rd December 2015 is a 150 years to the day since the subway first opened to the public.
To mark this anniversary, and also to start the works to re-open the subway for community use, Helen Hayes MP removed the first brick from the infill wall where a pedestrian gate will be reinstated.
Friends of CP Subway and their supporters will continue to fundraise in order to ensure that as many of the required H&S measures can be put in place to maximise the number of people who will be able to enter the subway.

Open House weekend also marks another important anniversary for Crystal Palace. On 19 September 1954, the very last train left Crystal Palace High Level Station and both the station and its subway were closed on 20 September; sixty years ago to the day of Open House 2014.
To mark the occasion The Southwark Model Railway Club have a model of the steam engine that pulled the last train and they will be running that on their impressive 32ft model of the station and tracks.
A must see for local historians, train enthusiasts and young people of all ages. The concert platform building has full disabled access.
