Brent Tube station features on English Heritage map
A Tube station in the borough has had its listing status bumped up by the Heritage Minister.
Sudbury Town is now a Grade II* building meaning it holds more than a special interest.
The building, which was designed by the distinguished modernist architect Charles Holden for the Piccadilly Line extension in the 1930s, was previously of Grade II status.
Acting on advice from English Heritage, John Penrose listed 16 Underground Stations.
He said: “Millions of people pass through London’s Underground system every day, with little thought for the historic design and architectural features that are right under their nose as they hurry underground to catch their trains.

Tube stations are great examples of the capital’s hidden heritage. It’s testament to the forward thinking and creativity of the design of Leslie Green and Charles Tyson Yerkes who created the original Underground Electric Railways that the brand and image of the red facades remain iconic.
“Although listing does not mean these stations will remain unchanged for all time, it does mean that any redevelopment plans will have to take the sites’ heritage value into account, which seems entirely right and will ensure the best of design is preserved for the future.”
