Stockley Park was built upon a tip that was used by Londoners who would load barges on the canal and come to tip the industrial and private waste from West London. Top soil was added to the site to cover the waste and the modern offices were built on top. Before that it was site of the Dawley Wall farm and gravel pit, and before that it was seat of John Bennet, 1st Baron Ossulston.
The estate was developed by Stanhope plc and designed by Arup Group from 1985.
The park is well served by public transport, by three local buses: routes A10 (Uxbridge and Heathrow Central), 350 (Heathrow Airport and Hayes, Asda) and U5 (Uxbridge and Hayes & Harlington). It is also shown on the platform signage at West Drayton railway station.
