Harrow: Trackbed of the dismantled railway, Belmont
Dismantled railway lines are normally associated with rural locations, but this one is in London. This branch line ran from Harrow and Wealdstone railway station to Stanmore with one intermediate station, at Belmont, and was originally financed by a wealthy landowner who owned Stanmore Golf Club and other land in the area. The railway was closed in 1964, a victim of Dr. Beeching's cuts. One of the possible factors in its downfall was the geometry of the connection at Harrow and Wealdstone where trains from Stanmore ended up facing northwards away from London. This view was taken looking southwards at the point where the railway crossed the east end of Vernon Drive.
