In modern times, the 52 bus route plies from Victoria station as far as Willesden Bus Garage.


Slightly longer ago, the 52 did not finish its jounrney in Willesden - oh no....

Northwards it went through the delights of Neasden, the semis of Kingsbury, the new estates of Burnt Oak and ended up at Mill Hill Broadway.

Still older folk will remember its far north terminus - Borehamwood (Rossington Avenue).

Here we bring you a street-by-street guide to bus route 52 from Victoria station to the byways of south Hertfordshire.

The children were constantly told off by the playground keepers for touching the plants or kicking the ball out of the permitted area, there was hopscotch as well, all these play items were brick apart from the slide. Pollock was the centre of my universe and I felt sorry and still do for anyone not being born there. To this day I miss it and constantly look for images of the streets around there, my sister and me often go back to take a clumped of our beloved L
