Stockley Park is a business estate in the parish of Harlington, located between Hayes and West Drayton in the London Borough of Hillingdon.

It is home to companies such as Apple Inc., Gilead Sciences, Canon Inc., Sharp Corporation, Marks and Spencer and GlaxoSmithKline.

History[edit]

Stockley Park was built upon a tip that was used by Londoners who would load barges on the canal and come to tip the industrial and private waste from West London. Top soil was added to the site to cover the waste and the modern offices were built on top.[1] Before that it was site of the Dawley Wall farm and gravel pit, and before that it was seat of John Bennet, 1st Baron Ossulston.

Transport[edit]

The park is well served by public transport, by three local buses: routes A10 (Uxbridge and Heathrow Central), 350 (Heathrow Airport and Hayes & Harlington railway station) and U5 (Uxbridge and Hayes & Harlington).[2] It is also shown on the platform signage at West Drayton railway station.
