Map of Stanwell Moor, Staines, UK
Distributaries of the complex River Colne run past Stanwell Moor where it forms a broad part of the Colne Valley regional park. Stanwell Moor is buffered from all other settlements. Its south is covered by the King George VI Reservoir after which is Staines upon Thames. South-west is the Wraysbury Reservoir.
History and geography
The locality gained its main barrier from what had always been its village in the early 1960s, a dual carriageway and it hived off shortly after with the building of a community hall and establishment of its own residents' association. It is however, ecclesiastically, still strongly tied with Stanwell in the Church of England, its parish. Fewer than six of the original medieval buildings stand in the hamlet.
It sits on the part of the parish on strongly fertile, partly densely wooded, alluvial soil, whereas most of Stanwell was associated with the stony ground which makes up gravel deposits near to the surface of the soil, as throughout the area south of Heathrow Airport to the River Thames.
The community is in the Stanwell North ward, as used by Spelthorne and for certain statistical purposes. Stanwell Moor is represented by Labour's Robert Evans, on Surrey County Council.
A parade of shops is here, followed at one end by a pub. A further pub is by the Colne itself.
