    5 Quickfire Addlestone Facts

    1. Out Of This World
      Addlestone appears in H.G. Wells novel War of the Worlds. H.G made Addlestone the sight of the second alien landing when an army of inter-planetary visitors decide to invade. The aliens emerge with weapons drawn and instantly start vaporising the town. Which, frankly, won’t get them invited back for Christmas!
    2. Running Scared
      When the War of the Worlds was first aired on the radio, director Orson Welles presented the play as a real newscast. In America, some people were so convinced it was genuine and that aliens really were attacking Addlestone, that they fled their homes and literally headed for the hills!
    3. Name Game
      The name ‘Addlestone’ is thought to derive from ”Attel’s Denu”, the valley belonging to Attel. Records of 1241 show the name as ‘Attlesdene’, and the first record of ‘Addlestone’ dates to 1614.
    4. Love Potion No 9
      Addlestone’s Crouch Oak in the centre of the town is believed to be one of Britain’s oldest trees. in 1810 a fence was erected by Capt. de Visme, to protect the hollow tree from local women stripping the bark to make love potions.
    5. Location Location Location
      The Enclosures Act of 1808 brought keen (and often wealthy) land hunters to Addlestone, looking for a place to build new homes. The Act ensured that some land should be set aside for ”the poor and dispossessed”, this section known as “The Poor’s Allotment” was in the Row Town area.

    Thank You Over’s

    Darryn and Kyle, the two removal men were just brilliant in carrying out their duties. Nothing was too much trouble. They are an asset to your company and great Ambassadors for your business. My wife and I felt on occasions they went above and beyond the normal service and went out of their way to help ease the process and stress of moving.

    - Andy Cookson – June 2021

    The two crew movers that moved me are exceptional. Polite, hardworking, and professional. Nothing was too much, no problems or complaints. They packed, moved me out, and moved me in. Constantly ensuring everything was where I wanted it and fine tune placement of my items. I could not have moved in without their, and the team at Armishaws efforts. Thank you for getting (injured) me, and my family in our new home safe and complete.

    - Alan Edmunds - June 2021

    Excellent removals experience on a two day local move in Somerset. Despite hail, the removals men did a fantastic job, and kept a sense of humour throughout. Nothing was too much trouble putting things where we wanted them in various sheds when we arrived. Toby and Ben made the experience SO much more fun, and less stressful. Cannot recommend them too highly.

    13th Century

    The valley belonging to a Saxon named Attel was listed as Attelsdene (Attel’s vale) in 1241. Not much more than a cluster of cottages and homesteads, it stayed that way for hundreds of years. The hamlet eventually became under the auspice of the parish of Chertsey until 1838. Chertsey’s poor law union’s workhouse was built in Addlestone in 1836.

    16th Century

    Over's Removals

    Those that have dreamed of a rural idyl might be interested to know that around the 16th century it did at least get its own pub, The George (which still stands and serves delicious food and cooling beer on a summer’s afternoon) has been pouring pints since at least 1775.

    14th Century

    Another long-standing local is Wycliffe’s Oak. This ancient tree is claimed to be England’s oldest oak tree, dating back between 500 – 800 years. The tree’s name comes from John Wycliffe, a 14th century theologian, philosopher and church reformer who preached under the tree, railing against the wealth of the church and state. Educated at Oxford University (which at the time only taught religion and theology), he even went as far as decrying the Pope as the ‘Antichrist’. Many of Wycliffe’s views were carried on as the founding stone of the Lollard movement.

    The tree is also still standing and sits within an unassuming collection of modern houses. 100 years ago in Byways of Surrey the historian Eric Parker wrote “…up to years not long gone by, love-lorn young women gathered its bark to boil down into philtres to ensnare the hearts of unwilling swains.” Indeed, the tree had to be fenced off to protect it from women stripping its bark for their love potions. It’s also claimed that Queen Elizabeth picnicked beneath the oak’s branches.

    Having finally become a town in its own right, Addlestone was the sight of an aircraft factory owned by Bleriot, the first man to fly across the Channel. During the First World War the factory chiefly produced propellors. During the Second World War, several hundred aeroplanes were produced there before being taken by road to Brooklands for final assembly and test flying.

    1900s

    By 1911, Addlestone’s population had reached 6,969. Today the town continues to grow but retains its small-town charm with the added bonus of fantastic commuter links. There is easy access to London and days out like Windsor and Wimbledon, good cycle routes, access to stunning countryside and it’s within a short drive of two of the UK’s most famous courses, Sunningdale and Wentworth.
