Stanmore is a place in the London Borough of Harrow, England. It is a suburban development situated 11 miles (18 km) north west of Charing Cross and located in postal district HA7. The area was recorded in the Domesday Book as Stanmere, the name deriving from the Old English stan, ‘stony’ and mere, ‘a pool’. There are outcrops of gravel on the clay soil here and the mere may have been one of the ponds which still exist. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Stanmore area.
By 1574 the area had become known as Stanmore the Great to distinguish it from Little Stanmore. Stanmore Village railway station was open for train services between 1890 and 1952. Stanmore tube station opened in 1932. Stanmore had an outstation from the Bletchley Park codebreaking establishment, where some of the Bombes used to decode German Enigma messages in World War Two were housed.
Stanmore is also home to RAF Bentley Priory from where the Battle of Britain was controlled, also formerly to RAF Stanmore Park, HQ of Balloon Command. The latter closed in 1997 and is now a housing estate.
The suburb is characterised by numerous small restaurants and cafés, several public houses, and a handful of boutique-style clothing stores. The centre of Stanmore is dominated by the presence of a large Sainsbury’s supermarket. Stanmore’s extensive residential areas are leafy and predominantly affluent, with many residents commuting daily to jobs in central London and the City.
Stanmore is home to Stanmore College (a government further education establishment) and a local library. The suburb also hosts the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital – known as RNOH – which is famed for its spinal unit.
