Sherrardspark Road is typical of streets in Welwyn Garden City. Most of the houses are part of the original plan for the 'new town', built towards the end of the 1920s and strongly reminiscent of designs by the English Arts and Crafs Movement. The trees are what is left of of part of an oak forrest thinned to make way for housing. The forrest was not destroyed, just reduced. At the far end of Sherrardspark Road is Sherrardspark Wood where the tall oaks still thrive.
