Site of proposed Brockley Hill Station on the
grassland north of the roundabout. The station was to have been on a
twelve-arch brick viaduct, with two side platforms capable of handling 9 car
trains. A service road would have run under the platforms bridged with a 55ft
steel span. The booking office would have been alongside the road under the
bridge with ladies toilet, waiting room and station masters office on the
northbound platform and a porter’s office, gents toilet and waiting room on the
south-bound platform. Under the arches would have been stores, a shop and stall,
a left luggage office and telephones. It was planned to have a short service
road leading off the Watford By-Pass to a row of shops. This would have included lock up garages and
a car park. There would have been bus stops on the by-pass.
