The reservoir was built by the Grand Union Canal Company to feed water into the River Colne. Dug in about 1796.

Constructed apparently by French prisoners-of-war!

This looks like the construction of North Western Avenue. Today this route is followed to the south (south west), towards the front of the picture by the M1 which was constructed along a route close to the proposed extension of the Northern Line to Bushey Heath in 1937.... and never completed. Most of the open country has now been built on.

Spot on, Maurice! Bart's Reference Atlas of Greater London (8th Ed. 1948) on page 21, shows this proposed extension to Bushey Heath from Edgware via Brockley Hill and Elstree South. Some earthworks were completed but the scheme was abandoned in 1940.

A rural scene less than three miles from the centre of Watford, with major changes taking place in the road network in the form of the Watford By-Pass/North Western Avenue, completed in 1926. Further changes were due to take place in the 1960s, notably the construction of the M1 Motorway.
