Harrow on the Hill was the site of the original hamlet in the early seventh century. The hill rises to 408 feet above sea level and was crowned by St Mary’s Church from the 11th century. A market was estab­lished in 1226 and Harrow School founded in 1572, under a charter granted by Elizabeth I to John Lyons. Properties in the village were taken over as boarding houses for the pupils from the late 17th century. The school doubled its capacity in 1821, a chapel was added in 1839 and numerous other buildings and purpose-​​built boarding houses followed.

With its little shops, tearooms and pubs, the village has changed little since that time, and the school’s extensive grounds have been partly preserved.
