History

The site of Stanmore Recreation Ground was probablly once part of the estate of Stanmore Hall. The original house was built in the 18th century by the Duke of Chandos who owned the Canons estate. Stanmore Hall was added to by later owners, and in 1847 it was re-sited, when the present house near Little Common was built by J M Derick for John Rhodes. The recreation ground was laid out in the 1930s.
