Stanmore Through Time


    As long ago as 1720, Daniel Defoe commented on the charm of the Stanmore area and it is not without that charm today. A popular suburb within the London Borough of Harrow, the ancient settlement of Stanmore is unique in many ways. Well-known local historian and author Geoffrey Hewlett reveals the many hidden secrets of the area and illustrates, through previously unpublished photographs and their modern equivalents, how the district has transformed. Stanmore Through Time takes the reader on a journey around the Western, Southern, Eastern, Central and Northern boundaries of Great Stanmore - an area that stretches from Belmont to Bentley Priory, and from Bromefield to Brockley Hill. This detailed tour, along with the familiar names mentioned in the 'Celebrities of Stanmore' section, will provoke readers to discover the area and view the changing face of a village so picturesque and rich in history.
