Stanmore has an extensive history dating back from 793 AD when Offa of Mercia granted lands, including those in Stanmore, to the Abbey of St. Albans. Today, Stanmore is now a residential district in the London Borough of Harrow in Greater London. Some of its main attractions include Bernays Memorial Institute, St. John the Evangelist’s Church, Stanmore Obelisk, Bentley Priory Nature Reserve, Bernays Gardens, Spring Ponds, Bentley Priory Museum, Stanmore Park, and Stanmore Common.
The Stanmore Obelisk, standing almost six metres high, was erected in 1750. On this site, many British tribes united under the leadership of King Cassivellaunus and defeated Julius Caesar’s Roman Legions in 54 BC.
The Bentley Priory Museum in Stanmore highlights how the Battle of Britain was won during World War II. It tells stories of soldiers’ sacrifices to defend Britain from the Nazis, including how Commander-in-Chief Dowding led Britain to its victory, the hundreds of aircrew killed in action, and the long hours spent in the Filter Room and Operations Room.
