London Underground Island Platform Stations

What London Underground stations have an island platform?

Although there are several stations served by London Underground trains that have an island platform (eg South Kenton), just 2 are deep level.

There are only 2 stations on the London Underground network that have island platforms. Both of them are on the Northern Line. These are Clapham North and Clapham Common. The close proximity of the two running railway lines makes them a hazard during peak times, and it can actually feel quite intimidating when trains on both sides are moving.
