  • Lothbury was an authorised but unbuilt underground railway station planned by the Great Northern & City Railway in Lothbury in the City of London. In November 1901, the GN&CR published a notice of its intention to present a private bill to parliament seeking permission for an extension of the company's tunnels then under construction between Finsbury Park and Moorgate. The bill proposed a short, 270 yd, southward continuation of the line to Lothbury which would become the southern terminus in place of Moorgate as originally planned. The bill received Royal Assent on 8 August 1902 as the Great Northern and City Railway Act, 1902. The station was to have been entirely below ground with access to the surface by lift and pedestrian subways to the corners of the junction of Lothbury, Gresham Street, Moorgate and Princes Street. One peculiarity of the scheme was that the running tunnels between Moorgate and Lothbury stations were to have been shorter than the platform tunnels at the two stations; meaning that the front of a full length train would have arrived at Lothbury before the rear would have left Moorgate.
