Rose Croft Gardens is a cul-de-sac off of Dollis Hill Lane.

In the 1920s and 30s new housing estates sprang up in Neasden and Oxgate, which brought thousands of people into the area. In the early 20s the North Circular Road was cut through the middle of the parish, and towards the end of that decade the Nicol Estate was built on its north side, and the Brentwater Estate on its other side. Braintcroft School was opened in 1928, and Wykeham School in 1930.

Neasden Golf Course began to be eaten away in 1926, and in 1929 the contents of the clubhouse were auctioned off. Within a year the golf course was covered by the houses of the “Dollis Park” estate to its eastern boundary at Vincent Gardens. The last country landmark in Neasden Lane, Jackman’s Forge, disappeared to make room for the new shopping parade. A new church hall for St Catherine’s Church was opened in 1928, and the old parish room which had been built in 1907 was demolished.

At the turn of the decade Neasden Recreation Ground was formed, then Neasden Library was built on the corner of Aboyne Road and the North Circular Road, opening in 1931. In 1930 the rear part of Neasden House was demolished to make way for Cairnfield Avenue, and the front part was converted into flats. In the early 1930s Neasden Shopping Centre was completed after Elmsted park estate, which lay between Neasden Lane, Dog Lane and the North Circular Road, was built on. At the junction of Neasden Lane and Dudden Hill Lane, Neasden Green, which had been getting smaller and smaller as the roads were widened, disappeared when Neasden Lane was bent back to meet Dudden Hill Lane at right angles opposite the new Tanfield Avenue. The playing fields south of Dollis Hill Lane was sold in the early 1930s to builders, including one called Lennox after whose family at least one and possibly three of the roads were named.

A new vicarage was built for St Catherine’s Church in Tanfield Avenue when it became the parish church of Neasden-cum-Kingsbury in 1932 in place of Old St Andrew’s, Kingsbury. The land north of West Way, Aboyne Road and the North Circular Road was incorporated in the new parish. The Ritz Cinema was built on the site of Neasden Cricket Club, opening in 1935. The cricket club moved to new land in Kingsbury. In 1938 the remainder of Neasden House was demolished and replaced by four blocks of flats named Clifford Court.

At the beginning of the Second World War an Emergency War Headquarters was set up at the General Post Office’s research station at Dollis Hill, where the War Cabinet could meet. And a citadel was built for the Admiralty on the corner of Oxgate Lane and the Edgware Road. The nearby block of flats called Neville Court was requisitioned to provide accommodation for Admiralty staff and Government officials. Two flats in it were knocked together for the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill and his secretaries.

My mum worked as a Clippie out from Middle Row Bus Garage and was conductress to George Marsh Driver. They travel the City and out to Ruislip and Acton duiring the 1950’s and 1960’s. We moved to Langley and she joined Windsor Bus Garage and was on the Greenline buses after that. It was a real family of workers from Middle Row and it formed a part of my early years in London. I now live in New Zealand, but have happy memories of the early years of London Transport and Middle Row Garage.
Still have mum’s bus badge.

Happy times they were.

Post by John Dye: Cool Oak Lane, NW9

I lived at Queensbury Road, Kingsbury during World War II and used to play regularly along the edge of the Welsh Harp. About halfway along Cool Oak Lane on the south side was a pond we used to call Froggy Pond. It was the only place I ever saw a water scorpion, Nepa cinerea.
At the end of the war, all the street air raid shelters were knocked down and the rubble was piled up on the ground south of the Cool Oak Lane bridge, on the Hendon side. I remember that this heap of rubble became infested with rats and I used to watch them from the bridge. I was told that an old house on the south side of Cool Oak Lane (Woodfield House?) was once owned by the wife of Horatio Nelson. I think it later became the nurseries for plants grown for the Hendon parks.

Dollis Hill

Dollis Hill tube station lies on the Jubilee Line, between Willesden Green and Neasden. Metropolitan Line trains pass though the station, but do not stop.

The Dollis Hill Estate was formed in the early 19th century, when the Finch family bought up a number of farms in the area to form a single estate. Dollis Hill House itself was built in the 1820s.

William Ewart Gladstone, the UK Prime Minister, was a frequent visitor to Dollis Hill House in the late 19th century. The year after his death, 1899, Willesden Council acquired much of the Dollis Hill Estate for use as a public park, which was named Gladstone Park.

Mark Twain stayed in Dollis Hill House in the summer of 1900. He wrote that ’Dollis Hill comes nearer to being a paradise than any other home I ever occupied’.

The code-breaking Colossus computer, used at Bletchley Park during the Second World War, was built at the Post Office Research Station in Dollis Hill by a team lead by Tommy Flowers. The station was relocated to Martlesham Heath at the end of the 1970s.

A World War II bunker for Winston Churchill called Paddock is located here.

The fictional Dollis Hill Football Club features occasionally in the British satirical magazine Private Eye, and Dollis Hill tube station, although real, is frequently played in the radio panel game Mornington Crescent.
