The figure shows how the village Chorleywood was developed between 1868 and 1994. As illustrated, there are four main periods. The first period lasted for 15 years and began in 1868. During that time, there was just a very small group of people living along the main road near Chorleywood Park. In the second period starting from 1883 to 1922, more people started spreading around Chorleywood station with twice the size of the population in the first period. The population was even bigger in the third period which happened after that and continued until 1970. Instead of living around the station, they went to live along the railway opposite to the side of Chorleywood Park. Finally, between 1970 and 1994, the population had reached 10 times larger than it was in the first period. During this 24-year period, there were a huge number of buildings located along the two sides of motorway.
