London tube, crossrail & accessibility

Another new London site is on the horizon. Well, it is actually not a new site, just a rebuild on something I have been passionate about for a long time. Access for all.

Some years back, I built a site about all of the London transport stations, in London, obviously; and with particular relevance to the accessability to the London tube network. This was about the same time that Channel 4 were running a series of reports on nogobritain, and I initially named the site nogobritain.com

What is also interesting is that I was never contacted by anybody who had the same interests, even though I clearly showed my levels of interest, perhaps I did not do a very good job in this – who knows.

As often happens, I eventually included this site into my pub history site, it’s very easy for me to do this, I have done it many times.

Anyway, back to the present. We now have Crossrail coming sometime in the next 12 months or so, after considerable problems in being ready on time. Exciting times for the London rail network.

I have revisited my accessible rail site, and re-branded it as nogolondon.com; and I am now finally starting to actually visit some of the stations, of which there are a lot, and  linking into my other London sites about street directories (mostly historical) and pub history, etc etc.

The site remains a tribute to Andy. Andy is a family member, and also the Godfather to my eldest child, long past that stage. For this reason, although the site pages need a considerable update, I will make this site as interesting to the entire community who use the London rail network, with particular relevance to those with accessibilty issues.

Enjoy, and feel free to contact me with additional detail, pictures, etc.
