This month’s historical photo shows a drawn aerial view of a part of Rickmansworth, looking much sparser than it does today.
The Cedars Estate, located near to the town’s train station and near to Moneyhill and Mill End, has filled up a lot more since this picture was made, all the way back in 1926.
The name most likely comes from the Cedars house in nearby Chorleywood, built as a 19th century country house, with it now existing as part of a retirement village.
In the suburb, the houses are afforded large gardens and grounds, with tennis courts, fountains and trees some of the many items that can be see next to the houses, which all have ample space between them as well.
Today, the area is much more compact, but the gardens in the area remain considerably larger than some of the ones in the nearby suburbs.
Do you have any photographic memories of Rickmansworth that you would like to share? If so, please feel free to send them to us at email@example.com and they could end up featuring in the future.
