Denmark Hill sign

Denmark Hill station is on the Overground line towards Clapham Junction, among other lines. The modern frontage on Champion Park is not very exciting:

The modern entrance on Champion Park to the south of the station:

Denmark Hill entrance

The entrance is at street level, but the platforms are in a cutting, and in fact the old station building still exists as a bridge over the line just west of the modern entrance. It's now used as a pub and coffee bar but it's still there and in good condition. A long view of the station building:

The modern entrance (top) connects to a ramp (top left), steps down to platform 1 (bottom left), and a covered footbridge (top right) running along the rear of the old station building:
