Spelthorne is a local government district with the status of a borough in the county of Surrey in England, on the east by Greater London. Administrative center is the city of Staines, where lives more than half the population; significant sights are Ashford, Laleham, Shepperton, Stanwell and Sunbury-on -Thames. It is twinned with Melun in France.
The district is named after the medieval administrative unit Spelthorne Hundred, which also included villages that today are in the London Borough of Hounslow. The Borough of Spelthorne was formed on 1 April 1974 and evolved from the merger of the Staines Urban District and the Sunbury Urban District. These districts belonged until 1965 to Middlesex, Surrey but were slammed after Middlesex had gone up almost entirely in Greater London. Another border cleanup took place in 1995, when the village came to the city Poyle Slough in the county of Berkshire.
