Wembley Central


Wembley Central was recorded as Wemba lea in 825 and the name is derived from the personal name Wemba and the Old English leah, 'forest clearing' - and means 'the clearing where Wemba lived'. This name may be a nickname or could be taken from Wemba, the name of a Gothic King. It has had various spellings until recorded as Wembley in 1535.

A station called SUDBURY was opened by the London & Birmingham Railway in 1842. It was re-named SUDBURY & WEMBLEY on 1 May 1882 and WEMBLEY FOR SUDBURY on 1 November 1910. The present station was first used for Underground trains as WEMBLEY FOR SUDBURY on 16 April 1917; re-named WEMBLEY CENTRAL 5 July 1948.
