“It really made the day. It’s something the other stations will not be able to boast about.”

The performance was put on by the Wimbledon-based Greensleeves Morris Men, who claim the title of London’s longest established Morris dancing club and will also be celebrating their ninetieth anniversary this year.

Leader of Greensleeves Morris Men, Dave Legg, said: “As Wimbledon’s local Morris side it was great to celebrate our ninetieth anniversary with Morden station.

“We could see people enjoyed our dancing on their way home from work.”

Morden station opened for the first time on September 13, 1926, along with South Wimbledon, Colliers Wood, Tooting Broadway, Tooting Bec, Clapham South and Clapham Common. Balham station opened a month later.

The station was designed by Charles Holden, and was one of the first to be built in the distinctive classic Deco Style.
