The local area guide to living in Stanwell

First mentioned in the Domesday Book commissioned by William the Conqueror, it reached further fame after having the Stanwell Manor given to Thomas Knyvett. A storied figure within the town, Lord Knyvett was granted his peerage upon his capturing of the famous anarchist Guy Fawkes. The Manor was sadly demolished in recent years, despite its somewhat interesting past owners, including the final King of Iraq. some may think the town to be somewhat grubby, due to its proximity to Heathrow Airport, though this is far from accurate.

A contender in the Britain in Bloom competition for several years, it was awarded bronze several years ago, and, in fact, has a subspecies of Rose named after it; the Stanwell Perpetual. The Stanwell Moor has also been kept clear of any development for decades, with much of the surrounding area protected, due both to its unique beauty and its significant indigenous animal and plant life.
