Afternoon teaser

Close yet far

Someone's just left a message on the board for my main site asking for the names of two tube stations that are less than a kilometre apart but would take over an hour to reach by tube.

The most well known are two that come up in Bill Bryson's book Notes From a Small Island. Bank and Mansion House. If you didn't know better you'd go to Bank, take the Central Line train to Liverpool Street, transfer to the Circle Line and continue for another five stops to Mansion House and emerge 200 yards down the street from where you started. But I'm not sure that would take over an hour. Or maybe it would.

The handy
walkways tube map has lots of these little routes where it's quicker to walk than use the tube, so I suppose it's bound to be one of the ones one here.
