100 years old? Really? Growing up on Oxhey Estate I remember the station being built in the 1950's. It replaced a small wooded structure which was situated a little further along the line.

I think they mean the original sandy lane golf course halt was opened in 1914 when they opened up the new suburban lines between Queens Park and Watford Junction. To celebrate the centenary a 100 school children are actually going to buy a ticket next Monday.
