 Blake Hall tube station - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Blake Hall tube station is a closed London Underground station in Essex, between North Weald and Ongar.
The station subsequently became known as the least used on the entire Underground (not surprisingly, as it was located a considerable distance from any settlement).
The station building still exists (it has since been converted into a private home), as does the now very rusty line passing it, but its platforms were demolished some years ago.

Blake simply left no instructions--to himself or to posterity--for their arrangement (we do not even know what order they were in when he gave the ms to John Linnell).
Blake's eloquent use of different colors in his hand-lettering of the Proverbs of Hell in copy H has been interpreted by differences in spacing the groups of proverbs.
Readers and students of Blake, with this text before them, confront an accurate and well-nigh complete collection--some erasures continue to defy transcription--of the writings of one of the greatest of English poets, and certainly one of the most original, and most relevant to us now.
