The 'top end' of Aycliffe Road, Borehamwood (1960s)

While the hilly ground here remains still largely undeveloped, a noticeable feature now and a trend throughout the London area is the expansion of the tree cover since the Second World War.

None of this open land can now be seen on Google Maps. From all angles, trees are in the way.
