    General Info

    Harrow Weald is the northernmost part of the town of Harrow in Greater London, England. It is formed from a leafy 1930s suburban development along with ancient woodland and forms part of the London Borough of Harrow. The 2011 census showed that in the Harrow Weald ward, 53% of the population was white.

    Historically in Middlesex, Harrow was a municipal borough before it became a part of Greater London in 1965. The modern town of Harrow is what was historically called Greenhill, a former hamlet at the foot of the 408 feet Harrow Hill settlement. With the arrival of the Metropolitan Railway in the 19th century, the centre of Harrow moved to Greenhill and it grew as the unofficial “capital” of the Metroland suburbia in the early 20th century.
