Bushey & Oxhey Station (1912) was the fifth station to be built for the expanding suburbs of both settlements. Previous stations were known from 1841 as simply Bushey and the name reverted back in 1974 to "Bushey".

Hi everyone,



Isn't there a story about bathing in a pool (or maybe the river?) near/under the arches of the Bushey curve? Before my time, but remembered I think by an elderly neighbour of my parents.



Yours, Katy

Can't see water being under the arches in a pool. Has to be the river. They were hardier types then....

A rare glimpse of the impact the railway had on the expanding suburbs of Oxhey to the west (left) and New Bushey to the east (right) of the London Midland & Scottish main line between London, Birmingham & Glasgow, to the south of Watford, a relatively prosperous market town and industrial centre in South West Herts.
