GLC[edit]

I remember Ken Livingstone in his GLC days floating a proposal to use the works as a manufacturing plant after the demise of AEC because of dissatisfaction with the Leyland alternatives (needless to say squashed by Mrs T), but can't find any good references.

I brought this paragraph here from Bushey Heath in case it helps.

During the war, the depot buildings were used for the construction of Halifax bombers and the land owned by London Underground at Bushey was used for farming. After the abandonment of the extension plans, the depot buildings became Aldenham bus overhaul works. As a result of the breakup of London Transport Buses and the devolving of maintenance functions to the depots of individual bus companies, the overhaul works ceased operation in 1986. They stood derelict until 1997 when they were demolished and replaced with the Millennium Business Park. Footage of the overhaul works in operation can be seen in the film Summer Holiday.
