The Wheatsheaf Public House was built in 1931 to replace an earlier version, which had stood on the Lower High Street for well over 200 years, to facilitate a road widening scheme. This attractive 1930s pub was, in turn, demolished in 1995 to make way for a massive retail park.

An excellent view of the area between Oxhey, Bushey and south Watford, with an interesting mix of land uses in the period immediately prior to World war II.

This image could justifiably gain inclusion in the "Railways" group selection, but suffice for the time being for it to be included in the "Watford & District" group, as it displays a pleasing mix of urban land uses at the south-east end of the town. I can still smell the distinctive aromas of this part of SW Herts in the 1950s: the sweet airs from Benskin's, mingling with the gasworks and the sulphur-laden pollution from the nearby railways.

An impressive shot of the 1913 viaduct leading off from the main LMSR line on the north side of Bushey Station, which carried the electric railway on a sweeping curve towards Watford High Street Station and the branch line to West Watford and Croxley Green.
