Introduction

Munmohan Singh Malli February 2003. How has the development of transport in the C19th contributed to the growth of Hayes? Explain your answer.

Middle

There were originally two routes drawn up the southern section, which ran through Watford, Ruislip, Harrow, Southall and Hanwell with linked routes to places such as Uxbridge. The other route would diverge through Watford to go through Rickmansworth, Denham, Uxbridge and Harlington to Southall. The second route was selected and approved in an act of parliament in 1793. Work commenced at once on the Oxford to Brentford section. This section of the canal opened on Monday 3rd November 1794. In the 1800's the Bulls Bridge to Paddington Branch of the canal was started and opened on July 10th 1901.
