TQ2191 : Abandoned Motorway Junction

taken 15 years ago, near to Mill Hill, Barnet, Great Britain

Abandoned Motorway Junction
Abandoned Motorway Junction
This abandoned motorway junction appears as an off-slip of the M1 between junctions 2 and 4. It's not the missing junction 3 - that never existed. Instead, this is the original end of the M1, which was briefly re-used in the early 1990s (hence the new features) when Brent Cross was bombed by the IRA. It has an eerie post apocalyptic look with grass and vegetation growing over it.
