Toponomy[edit] Wembley
Wembley
is derived from the Old English
Old English
proper name "Wemba" and the Old English
Old English
"Lea" for meadow or clearing. The name was first mentioned in the charter of 825 of Selvin. A further instance may be seen in the Plea Rolls of the Common Pleas, as Wambeleye.[2] Development[edit] The village of Wembley
Wembley
grew up on the hill by the clearing with the Harrow Road
Harrow Road
south of it. Much of the surrounding area remained wooded. In 1547 there were but six houses in Wembley. Though small, it was one of the wealthiest parts of Harrow. At the dissolution of the monasteries in 1543, the manor of Wembley
Wembley
fell to Richard Andrews and Leonard Chamberlayne, who sold it to Richard Page, Esq., of Harrow on the Hill, the same year. The Page family continued as lords of the manor of Wembley
Wembley
for several centuries and eventually commissioned Humphry Repton
Humphry Repton
(1752-1818) the landscape gardener to design what is now Wembley
Wembley
Park.[3][4] Wembley Park thus derived its name from Repton's habit of referring to the areas he designed as "parks". There was a mill on Wembley
Wembley
Hill by 1673. In 1837, the London
London
and Birmingham Railway (now part of the West Coast Main Line) was opened from London
London
Euston through Wembley
Wembley
to Hemel Hempstead, and completed to Birmingham Curzon Street the following year. The changing names of the local station demonstrated the increasing importance of the 'Wembley' name. 'Sudbury' station opened in 1845, renamed as 'Sudbury and Wembley' in 1882, renamed as ' Wembley
Wembley
for Sudbury' in 1910, renamed as ' Wembley
Wembley
Central' in 1948, at the time of the Olympic Games. To modernise the service, a new Watford DC Line
Watford DC Line
was built alongside the main lines and Bakerloo line
Bakerloo line
trains, and electric trains to Broad Street started in 1917. Electric trains to London
London
Euston began running in 1922. Since 1917, there have been six platforms at what is now Wembley
Wembley
Central station. In 1880, the Metropolitan Railway
Metropolitan Railway
opened its line from Baker Street through the eastern side of Wembley, but only built a station, Wembley
Wembley
Park, in 1894. There are now three physically separate services, the London
London
to Aylesbury Line, the Metropolitan line, and the Jubilee line. Only the latter two services have platforms at Wembley Park
Wembley Park
station. In November 1905, the Great Central Railway
Great Central Railway
(now, in this section, part of the Chiltern Main Line) opened a new route for fast expresses that by-passed the congested Metropolitan Railway
Metropolitan Railway
tracks. It ran between Neasden
Neasden
Junction, south of Wembley, and Northolt
Northolt
Junction, west of London, where a new joint main line with the Great Western Railway began. Local passenger services from London
London
Marylebone
Marylebone
were added from March 1906, when new stations were opened, including ' Wembley
Wembley
Hill', next to what later became the site of Wembley
Wembley
Stadium - the national stadium of English sport - which opened for the FA Cup Final of April 1923, remaining open for 77 years until it closed for reconstruction in October 2000.[5] After a long planning and redevelopment process dogged by a series of funding problems and construction delays, the new stadium finally opened its doors in March 2007.[6] Wembley
Wembley
Hill station was renamed ' Wembley
Wembley
Complex' in May 1978, before getting its present name of ' Wembley
Wembley
Stadium' in May 1987.[7]

British Empire Exhibition
British Empire Exhibition

The area around the current Wembley Stadium
Wembley Stadium
was the location of the British Empire Exhibition[8][9][10] of 1924-1925.[11][12][13][14] Until the 2000s, remnants of the many reinforced concrete buildings, including the original Wembley
Wembley
Stadium, remained, but nearly all have now been removed, to make way for redevelopment. Wembley, in common with much of northwest London, had an extensive manufacturing industry, but much of it closed in the 1980s. Factories in the area included Glacier Metals (bearings), Wolf Power Tools, Sunbeam Electrical Appliances, Griffin & George (laboratory equipment) and GEC (whose research laboratories, opened in 1923, were one of the first of their type in the United Kingdom.[15]). The retail centre of Wembley
Wembley
(the High Road and Ealing
Ealing
Road) has suffered from chronic traffic congestion and from the opening of neighbouring purpose-built shopping centres, first Brent Cross
Brent Cross
in the early 1970s and later the Harrow and Ealing Broadway
Ealing Broadway
Shopping Centres. During the 1960s, rebuilding of Wembley
Wembley
Central station, a block of flats, an open-plan shopping plaza, and a car park were constructed on a concrete raft over the railway. The shopping plaza suffered a slow decline and was therefore poorly maintained, but it is being redeveloped. The first phase, including construction of eighty-five homes and reconstruction of the plaza, has been completed.[16] Most of the rest of Wembley's housing consists of inter-war semi-detached houses and terraces and of modern apartment blocks, with a significant minority of detached housing. Extensive redevelopment has occurred in the Wembley Park
Wembley Park
area, about a mile northeast from Wembley
Wembley
town centre. Incidents[edit] On 16 May 1990, the Provisional Irish Republican Army
Provisional Irish Republican Army
planted a bomb under a minibus at the Army Recruiting Centre in Harrow Road, killing 34-year-old soldier Sergeant Charles Chapman and injuring four others including his colleague.[17][18] The bomb was believed to have been 2 lb of Semtex. The attack occurred near the Stadium intersection and caused shattered windows in nearby buildings.[19][20] No one was ever convicted of Chapman's murder. Ethnic diversity[edit]

A pie chart showing the ethnic makeup of central Wembley
Wembley
in 2001

Wembley
Wembley
has a high degree of ethnic diversity, as illustrated by the accompanying pie chart for Wembley
Wembley
Central (ward). According to the 1991 census, 49.2% of the Wembley
Wembley
Cental ward was Asian, with 39% being Indian. The ward along with neighbouring Tokyngton
Tokyngton
(eastern Wembley) and Alperton
Alperton
were in the top 10 most diverse in London. The white population dropped further to 21.3% by the 2001 census, with 78.6% being of black or minority ethnic (BME) groups.[21][22] The White British population of Wembley
Wembley
Central (population 14,727) decreased to only 792 people (5.3% of the population) in the 2011 census. This makes it the sixth least White British ward in London (seventh in the country).[23] Other ethnicities include 7.0% Other White, 66.2% Asian (46.2% Indian), and 13.9% Black.[23] Surrounding districts are notably more white and less Asian. Wembley
Wembley
Central only covers Wembley
Wembley
town centre and the whole town is represented by five other wards. Governance[edit]

Wembley
and its stadium

Wembley
Wembley
formed part of the large ancient parish of Harrow on the Hill in the Gore hundred of Middlesex. In 1894 Wembley
Wembley
was split from Harrow, creating a new parish and urban district. It included Alperton, Preston, North Wembley, South Kenton, Tokyngton, Sudbury, Wembley Park
Wembley Park
and Northwick Park. The urban district included the neighbouring parish of Kingsbury
Kingsbury
until 1901 and again from 1934. In 1937 it was incorporated as the Municipal Borough of Wembley. The fire brigade headquarters of Middlesex
Middlesex
County Council were located on Harrow Road
Harrow Road
and is now a fire station of the London
London
Fire Brigade. Wembley
Wembley
Town Hall on Forty Lane, built in 1938, became Brent Town Hall when the municipal boroughs of Wembley
Wembley
and Willesden
Willesden
were amalgamated in 1965 to form the London Borough of Brent
London Borough of Brent
and transferred to Greater London. Since the 2010 elections, Brent Council
Brent Council
has been controlled by the Labour Party. Wembley
Wembley
falls within the UK Parliament constituency of Brent North and the London
London
Assembly constituency of Brent and Harrow. Geography[edit] Until the nineteenth century, Wembley
Wembley
was rural and the sector retains a number of green spaces. These include Barham Park
Barham Park
(10.5 hectares) in Sudbury Town, King Edward VII Park, established in 1914 behind the High Road (10.5 hectares), and Sudbury Green. Less managed spaces include Fryent Country Park, Barn Hill (19.87 hectares), and Vale Farm sports ground (30 hectares). Brent River Park / Tokyngton
Tokyngton
Recreation Ground (20.26 hectares) has recently been restored, returning the river to a more natural course. Nearby Sudbury Golf Course backs onto the Grand Union Canal, with its towpath running into central London. Sudbury Squash and Tennis Club has outdoor tennis courts, an indoor squash court, and a clubhouse. Wembley
Wembley
is a short distance away from the Welsh Harp reservoir and open space, created in the early 19th century by damming the River Brent to provide water for the Grand Union Canal. The area is identified in the Mayor of London's London
London
Plan as one of thirty-five major centres in Greater London.[24] Wembley
Wembley
is made up of six wards: Wembley
Wembley
Central, Alperton, Tokyngton, Barnhill, Preston and Sudbury. The town takes up the south-western quarter of the borough of Brent, being west of Kilburn and south of Kenton.[25] It is also east of Northolt
Northolt
in the neighbouring London Borough of Ealing.

Wembley
is part of both HA0 and HA9 post codes, and has its own post code. It includes Alperton, Preston, North Wembley, South Kenton, Tokyngton, Wembley Park
Wembley Park
and partly of Sudbury and Northwick Park. Economy[edit] The main shopping area used to be centred on Wembley
Wembley
High Road, Central Square (which is undergoing redevelopment) and Ealing
Ealing
Road. In 1971 the High Road was seen as being the 11th best place to shop in London. However, it had fallen to 24th place by 1987.[26] Ealing
Ealing
Road remains important as a centre of South Asian jewellery and gold shops,[27] attracting people from as far afield as Leicester, but otherwise the focus of shopping has shifted north and east to London Designer Outlet[28] in Wembley
Wembley
Park. The Air France-KLM
Air France-KLM
European Sales and Service Centre, which is a sales channel for 15 European countries, is located in Brent Civic Centre in Wembley

The area's regeneration is one of the major development projects in London
London
in the early 21st century, as specified in the London
London
Plan published by the Mayor of London
London
Ken Livingstone

in 2004. The regeneration project is focused on the site first developed by Sir Edward Watkin
Edward Watkin
as a pleasure ground in the 1890s, and then used for the Empire Exhibition of 1924-5. This area includes Wembley Stadium
Wembley Stadium
and Wembley
Wembley
Arena. The 1923 Wembley Stadium
Wembley Stadium
closed in October 2000 and was demolished in 2003.[30] The new Wembley
Wembley
stadium was designed by a consortium including engineering consultant Mott MacDonald and built by the Australian firm Multiplex. It cost £798 million and opened in 2007.[31] Grade II-listed Wembley
Wembley
Arena, now the SSE Arena, has been sensitively refurbished in keeping with its Art Deco

style.[32] In 2004 Brent Council
Brent Council
approved a mixed use plan by Buro Happold
Buro Happold
for the development of 55 acres (223,000 m²) adjacent to the stadium, which was presented by Quintain Limited. It is envisaged that the whole of the former British Empire Exhibition

site will be redeveloped. At the same time Brent Council
Brent Council
is seeking to encourage redevelopment of the neighbouring Wembley

town centre area around the High Road. Sport and leisure[edit] Wembley
Wembley
has two local non-League football clubs, Wembley F.C.
Wembley F.C.
and South Kilburn F.C., that both play at Vale Farm stadium in nearby Sudbury. There once were two golf clubs in Wembley. Wembley
Wembley
Golf Club, founded in 1896, was situated north of the Metropolitan Railway
Metropolitan Railway
line in what is now the Fryent Country Park. The club closed in the late 1920s.[33] Wembley Park
Wembley Park
Golf Club was founded in 1912 in Sir Edward Watkin's Wembley Park

The prime landmark is Wembley
Wembley
Stadium, rebuilt 2003-2007 at a cost of £827 million,[35] which is approached via the White Horse Bridge designed by the London
London
Eye architects. Nearby is the SSE Arena, a Grade II-listed concert venue built in 1934 as the Empire Pool, a multi-use facility built for the 2nd Empire Games. The former Wembley (later Brent) Town Hall is a Grade II-listed building located on Barn Hill facing Wembley
Wembley
Stadium; it has now been refurbished as a French school, the Lycée International de Londres Winston Churchill.[36] The London
London
Borough of Brent's council chamber and administration have moved to the new Brent Civic Centre in Engineers Way, Wembley
Wembley
Park. St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Ealing
Ealing
Road, Wembley, was built in 1904, designed by Thomas Collcutt and Stanley Hemp. Construction was of brick and the design was influenced by the Arts and Crafts Movement. It was listed as a Grade II building in 1993.[37] The church was converted into the Central Mosque Wembley
