This fine image is an oblique aerial photograph of part of Oxhey in the late 1920s, during a period of rapid change. In the foreground, the new road of Woodwaye (1925) has been laid out. In the middle distance, trees and large, well-spaced detached houses line both sides of Green Lane, which eventually leads to Oxhey Place, less than a mile to the south of the camera position. More continuous housing development is observed on Oxhey Road, from which Kingsfield Road and Cedar Road extend in a north-easterly direction towards the London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMSR) line. Just visible on the extreme right-hand edge is one of the two reservoirs which served the railway troughs at Bushey until the mid-1960s. On the left of picture, woods occupy Deacon’s Hill and the western part of Oxhey Park, beyond which is the 1912 viaduct over the river Colne and the LMSR Bushey Curve. Almost obscured by trees in the middle of the photo is the distinctive spire of St. Matthew’s Parish Church (1880), on the western side of Bushey Station. Beyond the railway viaduct are the familiar gasholders on Watford’s Lower High Street. In the background, on the right-hand side, is the tall clock tower of the Royal Masonic School, by which umpires officiating at Bushey Cricket Club (Moat Field) used to call time for more than half a century from 1927. The writer played seven seasons for the Club between 1958 and 1965.

Train Picking-Up Water through Bushey Troughs I recall working on the railway back in the late 1970s and we put cabling in these troughs for Signalling and Telecomms. It never occurred to me that these troughs really were their namesake, we used them as ducting.

Bushey and Oxhey Station 'Oxhey' as a place seems to have been dropped, except by those in the terraces in and around Villier's Road, where it's now Oxhey 'village' If ever Oxhey was a village, when you have to make the point it no longer is.

Oxhey Church St Matthew's - Eastbury Road: Not sure why almost every other Postcard of Oxhey consists of this viewpoint on Eastbury Rd. There's 4-5 versions of this view to my knowledge. So much so, that the other cards showing anything else are a real rarity.

A pic as fine as this one could gain inclusion in several groups which have already been formed, but it well worth adding this image to the growing collection on the Watford and SW Herts site.
