Cricklewood Studios were British film studios located in Cricklewood, London which operated from 1920 to 1938. The studios were formerly a Handley Page aeroplane factory until they were bought by Sir Oswald Stoll as the principal base for his newly formed Stoll Pictures, which also operated Surbiton Studios.[1] At the time the studio was the largest in the British Isles. It was later used for the production of quota quickies. In 1938 the studios were sold off for non-film use. It is also sometimes known as the Stoll Film Studios.

In 2012 Peter Capaldi presented a documentary on BBC Television called "The Cricklewood Greats" reviewing the stars, and the history of the studios.
