Brixton


Brixton is recorded as brixges stane in 1062, and as Brixistan in the Domesday Book. The name is derived from the personal name of the Saxon Beorhtric and the Old English stane, 'stone'. Stones were often used as meeting points. The name changed to Brixton in the course of time.


The station was opened as BRIXTON on 23 July 1971.


Brixton

Brixton before the First World War. The site of the present day Underground station is on the right, but Brixton would have to wait another half century for the Victoria Line to arrive.
