“Simple park with a lovely garden and some history”
Review of Canons Park

Canons Park
Ranked #1 of 13 things to do in Edgware
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 December 2017

I visited the ruin of the old church in the centre of Stanmore early on a misty December Sunday morning. Afterwards, I walked southeast through Canon's Park to attend a service at the beautiful St. Lawrence Whit Church in Little Stanmore, on the southern edge of Canons Park.

Canons Park originated as land owned by the priory of St. Bartholomew in Smithfield, London (St. Bart's Hospital and the adjacent Smithfield Market survive there today.) After Henry V dissolved the monasteries, the land eventually ended up in the hands of the Duke of Chandos, who built an estate house here.

This is a flat, simple park. On the north end, the King George V Memorial Garden is a lovely walled space (see photo.) To the south is a long expanse of lawn leading down to the high road in Little Stanmore. It's not an overwhelming attraction but I'm glad I wandered through it.
