Wealdstone is an area in the
London Borough of Harrow, north-west Middlesex.
History and Name
Wealdstone is named for a locally famous stone, which is said to have existed in the area since ancient times. In
1996, a local public house, known then as The Red Lion, and now renamed The Weald Stone Inn, claimed to have found the mythical stone (formerly the 'marker' of the town's limits) in its cellar. This is probably apocryphal as the stone was known to be located in its current position as early as 1960. It was set into the concrete pavement outside the pub, at the intersection of Long Elmes, High Street and College Road. The Weald itself is a wooded area nearby.
The Harrow Leisure Centre [http://www.leisureconnection.co.uk/centre/2/21/harrow-leisure-centre.html] is located in Wealdstone and facilities include
swimming, Badminton, Snooker, Martial Artsand a gym. Wealdstone F.C.have had a long association with Wealdstone. Now based in Ruislipin the London Borough of Hillingdon, they were hoping to move to a new ground at Prince EdwardFields, Canons Park.
