To get to Hawksmoor, we got the train from Essex Road to Moorgate. This is far more pleasant than the bus – it’s only two stops and there was loads of room on the train. My husband did make the point, however, that there were so few people getting on and off at Essex Road, it made having it seem rather pointless. I disagree – it’s marvellous to find a station that isn’t totally rammed at rush hour – but I do see his point.
A lot of people were getting on the train at Moorgate to go back the other way so perhaps the line isn’t totally pointless after all.
