Farringdon

Farringdon

Farringdon. This part of central London takes its name from Farringdon Street. In 1279 the City merchant William de Farindon of the Goldsmiths' Company purchased the 'ward' of this area and became an Alderman of it two years later; the street was named in his honour. The street was built in 1738 upon arches, above the old River Fleet which is now a sewer.

The station was opened on 10 January 1863 as Farringdon Street; re-named Farringdon & High Holborn 26 January 1922; became Farringdon on 21 April 1936.


Farringdon

Farringdon & High Holborn is proclaimed along the top of the building in the style used by the Metropolitan Railway on many of its stations. This picture was taken after London Transport had reduced the name to Farringdon, there no longer being the need to make the claim of serving High Holborn when the Central Line stations were closer.
