It's on Union St, the Borough High St end just past Redcross Way and it backs onto the Crossbones graveyard. The vault-like building bristles with cameras. I think it may be something to do with London Transport, but I could be a long way from the truth. It is sinister.

I've often wondered about that. Its seems to be compeltely unmarked with the name of a company or anything, I've never seen anyone go in or out and its absolutely covered in cameras and fences and things. I wondered if it was some kind of secure storage, or maybe something a bit more exciting!

I'm pretty sure it's an electrical substation for the Jubilee Line Extension.

The giveway on these buildings is the the lettering on the safety information panels near the door - you'll find it's in the London Underground house style and typeface (New Johnston).

good point James, but would they use the MI5 house style if it was a super secret sinister thingummy? And just what typeface does MI5 use anyway - Comic Sans, or encrypted in to Wingdings? or....?
