History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Prior to the early 20th century West Harrow was overwhelmingly rural. The construction of the Uxbridge extension to the Metropolitan Line in 1904, and specifically the new West Harrow tube station, triggered a steady growth of homes in the area, spreading out from the location of the new station. The remaining open pockets of West Harrow were filled with small council and retirement estates in the second half of the 20th century.
