Wembley Park covered sidings. The building was demolished a few years ago and the sidings reinstated in the open. Now too short to stable Metropolitan S8 stock they are used, rather incongruously, to stable the shorter S7 stock of the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines.

This looks like the Ascension church hall, already built. The adjacent church building itself was not built until well after the war and was consecrated in 1957.

Lyon's Farm This farm near the top of Preston Hill was once the farm of John Lyon (1534-92), yeoman farmer of Preston who founded Harrow School. He bequeathed the farm and other lands to the school for its continuing upkeep. Much of the farm land had, by this time, already been sold off for development, but the farmhouse existed until 1960 when it was demolished.

Aha! I've always wondered and now I know... On google map images of this area there is a 'Barn Hill Lawn Tennis Clubhouse' marked but it's in the middle of a small wooded area. Here you can clearly see three tennis courts laid out to the middle right of the picture. Can't find any info on the tennis club though.
