Piccadilly Line in Sudbury (2)
Piccadilly Line in Sudbury (2)
This line to South Harrow was opened in 1903 and extended to Uxbridge in 1910, and was originally operated by the Metropolitan District Railway, responsibility only passing to the Piccadilly Line in 1932. This view was taken from The Rise road bridge looking towards Sudbury Hill station which is just around the corner. The houses on the right are on Maybank Avenue. The housing estates came after the railway was built and an early road map showing the surrounding roads but not the houses shows Maybank Avenue as Rosebank Avenue. Only about 100 metres away from the railway here, and on the far side of Maybank Avenue, is another parallel railway, the former Great Central Railway's line to High Wycombe from Marylebone, now operated by Network Rail.
