Preston Road

Preston Road was mentioned as Preston in 1194 and the name comes from the Old English preast, 'priest' and tun 'farm' - and means the farm belonging to the priest(s)'. A priest is mentioned in the Domesday Book as holding land in the parish of Harrow, possibly at this location. The road was added to the name as the district grew in the course of time.

The station was opened as PRESTON ROAD halt on 21 May 1908; new station (resited) 22 November 1931.
