The "Chandos" and "Masons Arms"
The 900 year old "Chandos Arms" at Edgware, which had been associated with Dick Turpin, the Duke of Chandos, and the old coaching days, is to go and it will reappear as a modern house at Colindale. Its neighbour the "Masons Arms" is to be pulled down and rebuilt when the corner of Whitchurch lane is widened. At the annual licensing meeting for the Gore Division of Middlesex were heard.
The Justices gtanted Mr George Cheshire the transfer of his licence from the old "Chandos Arms" to a proposed new building in Colindale avenue, to be known as "The New Chandos" and they approved of the proposed rebuilding of the "Masons Arms" Edgware. The application in respect of the Wembley Stadium, which is now a greyhound racing course, was adjourned until March 16th. The New Chandos was at the corner of Colindale avenue and Annesley avenue. It was on the main road from Edgware road in the London Aerodrome and to Colindale station. In Colindale there were many factories and it was impossible at the present moment for the employees to obtain the lunches and refreshment which they required. It was to be a modern, first class public house where people could go for good meals and refreshemnt without having to travel a condierable distance. There was no full licence within a distance of about a mile. Major Savage, the famous sky-writing pilot said he carried on business as an aeronautical engineer at Colindale and employed upwards of 50 men. Mr George Cheshire said he and his brother had held the licence of the Chandos for 38 years. Transfer granted.

The Old and the New.
The oldest tavern in England, with the exception of one at Chester, has been turned into a booking office for motor coach travellers. It is the Chandos Arms, Edgware, one of the old coaching houses, which, it is said, dates back to the days of William the Conqueror. Tradition has it that a back room was used by Dick Turpin.
In the next room is an imposing marble fireplace, which used to have a home at Canons, a large house at Edgware, built by the first Duke of Chandos. Handel, who lived for two years at Canons, was a frequent visitor at the old tavern.
