|Staines Rural District|
Staines Rural District within Middlesex in 1911
|Government||Staines Rural District Council|
It was created in 1894 based on the former Staines rural sanitary district. It included the following parishes
- East Bedfont
It was named after Staines, which bordered it to the west, and surrounded Sunbury on Thames on two sides. Feltham became an independent urban district in 1904 and the parish of Hanworth constituted an exclave.
The district was abolished in 1930. The parishes of Ashford, Laleham and Stanwell became part of an expanded Staines Urban District, and the parishes of Littleton and Shepperton became part of Sunbury-on-Thames Urban District. East Bedfont and Hanworth became part of the Feltham Urban District. Cranford and Harlington became part of a Hayes and Harlington Urban District, and Harmondsworth joined the Yiewsley and West Drayton Urban District.
The area now forms part of the Surrey borough of Spelthorne (Sunbury and Staines etc.), and in Greater London the London Borough of Hounslow (Feltham, Cranford, Bedfont, Hanworth etc.), the London Borough of Hillingdon (Harlington and Harmondsworth), with a small area in the borough of Slough in Berkshire (Colnbrook with Poyle).
