Another London-bound view reveals the obvious economising of the footbridge over the "fast" lines, and the television screens installed in 1992 during the "Networker" programme. The younger tunnel portal, disguised by shrubbery, can be seen in the background. © David Glasspool

Despite the reductions and demolitions of canopies on the platforms, the approach road elevation of the main building manages to retain an attractive entrance canopy. The brickwork here is very reminiscent of the later LC&DR rebuilds at Chatham, Bickley, Bromley South, and Faversham, despite the building residing on an ex-SER line. © David Glasspool

Back on the station itself, this view shows the only two platform faces which see regular use, flanked either side by copious amounts of greenery. The eldest of the tunnel portals can just be seen. © David Glasspool

A general London-bound view across the platforms reveals a neat row of mature bushes on the island, which replaced the flowers seen in the 1990 photograph. The platforms here have been concrete in constitution from the outset. © David Glasspool
