Deanery Close
Deanery Close
Another 1980's housing development. The estate is built on an area of open land that sat between the railway line and a footpath leading down to East Finchley station. Approximately where I am standing, the footpath was carried over a siding in a cutting by a small bridge. It was constructed in the 1920's and I believe it was used to supply a builders merchant (Gray's?) at a time when the area was rapidly growing. The remains of the siding with one decomposing wagon were still there in the early 1970's. The main railway goods sidings were closer to the station and are now a car park.
