RESIDENTS of the celebrated Sudbury Court Estate are throwing a party for its 85th anniversary.

The area, formerly the Manor of Harrow, was developed for housing by Captain Edward George Spencer-Churchill, first cousin of Winston Churchill, in 1926 and is known for its mock-Tudor design.

The estate covers a network of streets around Watford Road, East Lane and Sudbury Court Drive and residents are invited to the free event, starting at 12.15pm in Northwick Park Playing Fields, on Sunday, June 19.

There will be a dog show, go-karting, magic shows, face-painting, a bouncy castle, music and food, as well as emergency services exhibits.

Organsier Jo Blaylock said: “We are not making any money out of this, we are doing it for fun. There's going to be bouncy castles, a dog show and a marching band.”

The estate is now a conservation area. For more on its history click here.
