Cool Oak Lane connects West Hendon with Kingsbury.

By the 1820s the Regent’s Canal was not holding sufficient water at its top in Camden Town.

To resolve this issue a reservoir was built in West Hendon by damming the river Brent near its confluence with the Silk Stream. This flooded a large area of low lying farmland to create the Welsh Harp reservoir. Later a bridge was built along Cool Oak Lane.

Vickers Road
The road ’Vickers Road’ is numbered rather differently to other roads in the area as it was originally built as housing for the "Vickers" arms factory in the late 1800’s and early 1900s. Most of the houses still retain the original 19th century tiling and drainage outside of the front doors.
