SITE DETAILS

Uxbridge Golf Course Hillingdon

Summary

In 1934 127.86 acres of former parkland of Harefield Place Estate was purchased by Middlesex County Council; the house was later refurbished as offices in 1983-5. The grounds were partly developed for housing and partly laid out as Uxbridge Golf Course, which opened in the 1940s. The landscape has one or two big standard oak trees remaining, now much altered by typical linear golf course planting of birch and other trees.

Fuller information

This is former parkland of Harefield Place (q.v.), which was built in 1786 as Harefield Lodge by Henry Couchman for Sir Roger Newdigate of Harefield, to replace the old manor house near Harefield Church of St Mary (q.v.). There are remains of a walled garden, stables and the thatched North Lodge on Harvil Road.
