Railings by the railway in Rayners Lane


Largely built in the 1930s as “Harrow Garden Village”, there isn’t much garden left in Rayners Lane today. Part of the “Metro-land” building projects between the two world wars, the area was built up around the Metropolitan Railway – which now forms the Metropolitan Line on the London Underground.

Many of the houses in Rayners Lane have been divided into flats and most have paved over their front gardens to make car parking and wheelie-bin spaces. It’s a useful place to be able to visit should you need a greengrocer’s or butcher’s shop to be open at 9pm , but perhaps is a place to travel to, rather than live in, these days.
