A little bit of history
Kingsbury, meaning ‘the kings Manor’ began life as a pre-Saxon settlement. Historically, its position made it popular with both Norman and Anglo-Saxon invaders. Overtime ancient forest gave way to farmland, and by the 20th Century the area was best known for its airfield. But it was the railway, and Kingsbury’s connection to London which really put Kingsbury on the map - Kingsbury has at one time or another been a station on the Metropolitan, Bakerloo and Jubilee lines.
