Sir Arthur Noel Mobbs (1878–1959) was the founder of Slough Estates, one of the United Kingdom's largest property businesses.
Brought up in Northampton, Mobbs was educated at Bedford Modern School. Together with his brother, Herbert, he founded the Pytchley Autocar Company in 1903 to sell private vehicles: the business was later bought by Mercantile Credit. Another of Noel's brothers, Edgar, was a well-known Rugby player and Captain of the England team in 1910.
In 1920, Noel Mobbs and Sir Percival Perry acquired Slough Depot, a vehicle park where thousands of disused military vehicles had been abandoned. They sold the vehicles and converted the factories and let them out for industrial use, so establishing the Slough Trading Estate.
Mobbs was also keen to establish sporting and social facilities for the people of Slough and in 1928 he bought Stoke Park Golf Club for £30,000 and reformed it. He also established the Stoke Poges Memo
