Wharf House, Hunton Bridge

Beside the Grand Union Canal, at Hunton Bridge (or Hunton Bridge), near Watford, Hertfordshire.

Home of Arthur F.V. Gibbon and family.
Think the Gibbons were there by 1917. There as at 1918-22. See 1921 address.
They left by 1926.
Wharf House is now gone.

Wharf House must be the house just above "Huntonbridge Wharf".
The front porch, front garden, side building and side gate all match the photo below.
The entire area is now apartments and houses.
See satellite view. See street view of entrance.

There are some attractive little houses at the end. But, like everything else, they are new. See photo and closer.
