North Harrow is a residential area of North West Outer London. Despite its name, it is actually to the north-west of central Harrow. It has grown outwards from the North Harrow tube station which is on the Metropolitan Line which runs from Aldgate to Watford. It is one stop away from Harrow town centre. Before the station was opened and the suburb developed, the area was originally known as Hooking Green. It has a large non-English population which consists largely of ethnic groups from the Indian subcontinent especially Tamil and Gujarati and some Eastern Europeans. There is a Muslim community centre there, a popular place of meeting for the many Muslims of Harrow. North Harrow is also one of the better areas of Harrow, in terms of safety and quality of education of its schools.[citation needed]

It is a part of the Harrow West parliamentary constituency with Labour Party (UK) MP Gareth Thomas.

There is a 14th century moated manor house, Headstone Manor, as well as Harrow Museum and Heritage Centre which is based in Headstone Manor Recreation Ground.


North West London Talks

North Harrow is also the home of North West London (NWL) Talks which are held at The North Harrow Assembly Hall. The talks take place weekly on Friday evenings however, the timing of the talks varies throughout the year. In winter the start time is at 20:30 whereas in summer it is at a slightly earlier 20:00. Naturally, due to the wide range of speakers the academic talks cover a broad spectrum of disciplines - though they do tend to be more focused on current and historic political affairs. In the spirit of community, all are welcome and admission is free.

Headstone Manor & Pinner Albion youth football clubs

Other than its predominant use as a meeting ground for underage drinkers, the recreation ground is also sometimes used for training for the Headstone Manor Youth football club for age groups ranging from Under 8's to the Senior team. The most successful Headstone Manor team to date was managed by Nigel 'Trout Pout' Trout, between 2000 and 2005, who enjoyed an incredible amount of success guiding his son's team, with great support from the likes of Kevin Duffy, Lino Perdoni and the UEFA B standard coaching of John Parsons. The team won the Middlesex Cup an unprecedented three years in a row (2001/02, 2002/03 and 2003/04) and became the first team to appear in four consecutive finals, losing the 2000/01 final. The team also won the Harrow Youth League Cup three times (2000/01, 2001/02 and 2003/04) and the Harrow Youth League Premier Division twice (2000/01 and 2001/02) therefore achieving the 'treble' in their 2001/02 season. Furthermore the team also finished runners up in the Harrow League Cup twice (2002/03 and 2004/05) and the Harrow Youth League Premier Division twice (2002/03 and 2003/04), thus making the team one of the most successful teams in Harrow and Middlesex ever. In addition Graham Marr's team were one other highly successful team to represent the club. Pinner Albion also had a very successful season in 2006 when Dave Webbers team won the league and LNER tournament with a runner-ups medal in the sup cup. Chris Gunn managed a staggering 72 goals in 23 games in the one season, It was the highest tally of goals in Pinner Albion History,
