Croxley Rail Link (13): Site of the former Watford West Station
Croxley Rail Link (13): Site of the former Watford West Station
This is the former Watford West station, dating from 1912 and the opening of the L&NWR's Croxley Branch. The new Croxley Rail Link, now known as the Metropolitan Line Extension, would utilize the trackbed through here, but it is not planned to re-open the old station. The trackside vegetation has been cleared in preparation for the link and the extents of the old station can be seen from the Tolpits Lane bridge for the first time in many years. Little other than the platform, steps and lamp posts remain and the litter is a real eyesore.
