In the northernmost reaches of the county of Middlesex lies the picturesque village of Pinner and its close-by hamlet of Hatch End. When the railways began linking up towns and villages there was an almost universal cry from landowners that they didn’t want steam trains anywhere near their homes and town centres. Pinner’s railway had to pass Hatch End and for some years the station there was called Pinner until the Metropolitan Line cut through the centre of Pinner in May 1885. This new book is a detailed pictorial record of the development of the area where the author grew up, noting the changes around him as the developers of the 1930s systematically substituted trees and fields with bricks and mortar. His account tells of the many changes and the wanton destruction the post-war years wrought in the name of progress. The book includes many rare images that have not been seen before, including some photographs taken many years ago by the author himself.
