Cemetery – this was the burial ground for Leavesden Hospital. It is totally derelict and overgrown – although there you can see that there were specimen trees planted here. There is also a semi derelict wooden entrance. There were two hospital cemeteries here and one is accessible. The other has been left to become wooded and a condition of the transfer of the land to Three Rivers District Council required it remain in that way.
Gas works. This was present in the 1870s and was later this was joined or replaced by a sewage pumping station. This was at the back of Leavesden asylum and the works served the buildings. There is also said have been a the waterworks here and a square green patch to the northis said to have been a reservoir. The hospital water supply joined the local system in 1980 and this  site was used by various tradesmen.
