Lost Tramways of England: London North-West is one of four books in the Lost Tramways of England series which focus on London’s tramways. In this volume the author, Peter Waller, covers the history of tram operations in the north and north-west of the city.

London was once the largest tramway network in the British Isles. Originally, London's tramways had belonged to a range of different operators, but in April 1933 the London Passenger Transport Act 1933 was passed and the London Passenger Transport Board was created, resulting in a great variety of tramcars being operated in the Metropolis. In the north-west of the city the tram operations of the Metropolitan Electric Tramways, London United Tramways and the London County Council were taken over by the LPTB in July 1933. This area had been dominated by the Metropolitan Electric Tramways and the LPTB planned to replace the routes with trolleybus operation, resulting in a network which was largely converted to trolleybus operation during the 1930s.
