The farmhouse at Vale Farm, around 1900.

Vale Farm was probably a mixed farm, growing crops and raising livestock for meat, run by a succession of tenant farmers..

Vale Farm existed, on the north-east edge of Sudbury Common, by at least the 18th century, when it was owned by the Lake family, and later by Richard Page of Wembley Park.

By 1875, the farm was owned by the biscuit magnate, Samuel Palmer, and before he died in 1898 it had changed to a dairy farm, with a herd of cows grazing its pastured fields to produce milk. The buildings put up at the time of this change included a new farmhouse.

By the early 20th century, much of Sudbury was still farmland, but the area was starting to be developed for housing, particularly after new railway lines opened (at Sudbury Town in 1903, and to Sudbury and Harrow Road station in 1906). A map given by Wembley’s first estate agent, George H. Ward, ‘for information of intending purchasers’ at this time, shows Vale Farm and some of the new roads for housing nearby.

In the early 1900s, the tenants of Vale Farm were the Panes family.

By 1910, the Vale Farm Dairy business had a shop on Wembley High Road (near what is now Wembley Central Station) and was making milk deliveries to local homes. The milkman pushed a hand-cart, and would ladle milk out of a large churn into metal cans, depending on how much milk each customer wanted to buy.

Housing development in Sudbury finally caught up with the farm in the 1920s. Wembley Urban District Council saw the need for public recreation, as well as homes, and bought 33 acres of Vale Farm land in 1928, for use as a Sports Ground. It built a large open-air swimming pool there, which opened in 1932, and the former farmhouse was used as the home for the Sports Ground’s superintendent. The farmhouse is no longer there, and may have been demolished as part of the redevelopment of the Vale Farm Sports Centre in the late-1970’s, when the present indoor swimming pools were built, so that only the farm’s name now survives.

John Rocque Map of Wembley, Kingsbury, Willesden and Harlesden (1762)
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers an area from Harrow in the northwest to Harlesden in the southeast.
