From 1940 until 1960 I lived at Emlyn Gardens Shepherds Bush - these were Council flats and hence I wondered what on earth these were
Emlyn Leisure Gardens Association
when it came up in a Google alert
Behind the flats there used to be a railway on an embankment. It closed in 1965 and the land is now allotments.
Click to see map it ran between Emlyn Rd and Abinger
and a lovely web on these old railways Hammersmith & Chiswick
Really great to see what would have been a derelict turned into something useful for the community
