Between the M1 and A1 (Watford Way) at Mill Hill stands this abandoned slip road, unused since the early 90s. The view in this painting faces northwest towards the M1 on a grey late afternoon. It felt eery standing there seeing the crash barriers and roadside lighting still in place albeit dilapidated with encroaching nature. Still it was reassuring to hear the distant traffic of the motorway beyond.
