Stanmore Station.  10th December 1932. Terminus of Jubilee Line Station from Canon’s Park. Built on the Metropolitan Line as the Terminus of line from Baker Street. It was however half a mile from the village and went No further because of the expensive of tunnels but it was planned to allow for a through station.  It is on the summit of the line and scooped out of the side of the hill.  The station would not have looked out of place on a country gentleman's state with four chimneys and Dormer windows, tiles, clock.  The building in multi coloured red brick and the interior hall of khaki toned tiles with plaster friezes and features framed in hardwood.  It was designed by Charles Clark in neo Georgian with an Awning and white cast iron pillars, shops, 1930s globe lights and LT brackets, Isabella coloured tiles, moulded plaster frieze, and dark hardwood woodwork.  There is an Island platform with waiting room. In 1939 it became a Bakerloo Line station and in 1979 part of the Jubilee Line. Station park and ride since 1975.   It is the end of the Jubilee Line and at the end of the footpath from the station to the car park are the trains lined up ready to go out.
