Post by Scott Hatton: 12 Wansford Park, WD6

We moved to 12 Wansford Park during August 1960, moving out during 1967.

My parents had managed to wangle themselves into a house in London W10 which was due to be demolished by the local council. Thus the council moved them into a much better place (inside toilet!) opposite Tempsford Green in Borehamwood.

Post by John Dye: Cool Oak Lane, NW9

I lived at Queensbury Road, Kingsbury during World War II and used to play regularly along the edge of the Welsh Harp. About halfway along Cool Oak Lane on the south side was a pond we used to call Froggy Pond. It was the only place I ever saw a water scorpion, Nepa cinerea.
At the end of the war, all the street air raid shelters were knocked down and the rubble was piled up on the ground south of the Cool Oak Lane bridge, on the Hendon side. I remember that this heap of rubble became infested with rats and I used to watch them from the bridge. I was told that an old house on the south side of Cool Oak Lane (Woodfield House?) was once owned by the wife of Horatio Nelson. I think it later became the nurseries for plants grown for the Hendon parks.

Canons Park

Canons Park - a suburban area named after a long-gone stately home.

Canons Park is named after an early eighteenth century Alexander Blackwell-landscaped park laid out the first Duke of Chandos. The suburb called Canons Park is south of the original park and was open countryside until the 1930s.

Canons Drive follows the original path of the entrance to the Cannons estate, retaining the two large pillars which acted as gateposts where it met the Edgware Road. The remains of a second, raised, carriageway running from Cannons can be traced through Canons Park in the direction of Whitchurch Lane. A 7-acre lake and separate duck pond also formed part of the original Cannons Estate and survive within the boundaries of the Canons Drive residential area.

In December 1932, the Metropolitan railway (later part of the Bakerloo Line and now the Jubilee line) opened a branch from Wembley Park to Stanmore via Kingsbury, Queensbury and Canons Park (then called Canons Park (Edgware). Suburban development slowly followed - the area is now covered with typical 1930s/1940s detached and semi-detached villas.
