|Notes / History|| Morden station was opened on 13 September 1926. Morden was then a rural area and the station was built on open farmland giving its designer, Charles Holden, more space than had been available for the majority of the stations on the Northern Line.
Unlike other stations on the southern branch of the Northern Line, Morden station is not in a tunnel but is in a wide cutting with the tunnel entrance a short distance to the north.
The Northern Line tunnel from Morden Station, running via the Bank branch to East Finchley, is one of the longest tunnels in the world ( 17.25 miles - about 28 km ).
