Canons Park
 (голосов: 0)
Canons ParkCanons Park. Six acres of this area were granted to the Prior of the St Augustinian canons of St Bartholomew's, Smithfield, in 1331 and were recorded as Canons during the 16th century. Canons Park later became the property of the Duke of Chandos and on the estate was built the Duke's magnificent mansion (also named 'Canons') which was demolished after its sale by the Duke's heir in 1747, being broken up and sold by lots at auction.

The station was opened on 10 December 1932 as CANONS PARK (EDGWARE), becoming just CANONS PARK during 1933.
