Rizla factory to the left. Triangular building 1930s style.

Twyford Abbey. The Brent used to wind its way through these grounds. Then it was more or less straightened like a concrete trough from the Harrow Road to the Piccadilly line bridges. This aligned it with the new North Circular Road in 1934. The Abbey gave its name to the hotel, a housing estate, an industrial estate, and the first road on the housing estate.

To the right is a single set of steel railway buffers. The buffers faced Heather Park Drive, so the rails would presumably have linked with the single line which ran behind the factories.

This is the only instance of a collection of garages for the Heather Park Estate. Perhaps 10 or 12 of them. I wonder if they were built over the experimental tank shown in other images?

There are some interesting shapes depicted in the various ground markings to the right of this tag. They could be previous buildings.
