Additional Notes:

»

After some twenty years the junction has been changed, with roads widened and crossings improved; there is also a new roundabout for the industrial estate just beyond this one to the south.

Other nearby locations:

Springwell Lock (The Three Doctors). Road: Head west along the A412, through Rickmansworth and on towards Maple Cross and Denham (it becomes Uxbridge Road). Springwell Lane is on the left, a little before the Maple Cross roundabout leading to the M25 (jn 17), and the Lock is a little way along the lane. Parking: free car park beside lock.

Trivia:

»

The ambulance station is just beyond the roundabout where the ambulance is seen passing by - so it seems the ambulance is going in the wrong direction!
