Cranley Gardens station looking east in July 1965. The station site is getting more overgrown and the surviving up platform building more dilapidated. Note the new fencing constructed across the track. The site was divided into two plots; that in front of the fence would be used for a school in the latter half of the 1960s.The far side of the fence would survive a little longer with a care home being built there in the early 1970s.

Looking east from the end of the platforms at Cranley Gardens station in November 1966. The street-level building on Muswell Hill Road is now in very poor condition and would soon be demolished along with the footbridge in front of the road bridge.

The condition of the up platform building deteriorated rapidly in the latter half of the 1960s. Contractors have started working in the goods yard behind the building. This view is from 1967.

Looking west at Cranley Gardens station in April 1968. The up platform building has been demolished and the trackbed has been filled in on the far side of the fence as St James' Primary School is under construction. The remaining east end of the platforms would survive for a further two years. The school caretaker's house and adjacent brick tower, seen in the distance, are also visible in
the 2007 photo below.

Recent aerial view showing the site of Cranley Gardens station. The bridge on Muswell Green Road is seen on the right. The surviving bridge parapet can be seen between the trees. The large brick building to the left of the bridge is the now-closed Cranwood Care Home which stands on the east end of the station side. To the left of that is the St James' Primary School. The playground and caretaker's house stands on the west side of the station site while the school building is on the west end of the goods yard.
