Canons Park

Canons Park - a suburban area named after a long-gone stately home.

Canons Park is named after an early eighteenth century Alexander Blackwell-landscaped park laid out the first Duke of Chandos. The suburb called Canons Park is south of the original park and was open countryside until the 1930s.

Canons Drive follows the original path of the entrance to the Cannons estate, retaining the two large pillars which acted as gateposts where it met the Edgware Road. The remains of a second, raised, carriageway running from Cannons can be traced through Canons Park in the direction of Whitchurch Lane. A 7-acre lake and separate duck pond also formed part of the original Cannons Estate and survive within the boundaries of the Canons Drive residential area.

In December 1932, the Metropolitan railway (later part of the Bakerloo Line and now the Jubilee line) opened a branch from Wembley Park to Stanmore via Kingsbury, Queensbury and Canons Park (then called Canons Park (Edgware). Suburban development slowly followed - the area is now covered with typical 1930s/1940s detached and semi-detached villas.
