Sudbury Hill Station. 28th June 1903. Between South Harrow and Sudbury Town on the Piccadilly Line.  Built on the  Metropolitan District Railway. Originally called 'Sudbury Hill for Greenford Green' it was in a corrugated iron hut. In  1931 the original station building was demolished and replaced by a new station in preparation for the handover to the Piccadilly Line. The new station designed was by  Holden in a modern style using brick, and glass. It featured a tall block-like ticket hall rising above a low horizontal structure that contains station facilities and shops. The brick walls of the ticket hall are punctuated with panels of  windows and the structure is capped with a flat concrete slab roof
