    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.

    - Helen Williams – May 2021

    Early Days

    The first written evidence of Aldershot was its inclusion in the Domesday Book in 1086, at this time it was a small community in what was mostly wasteland and wasn’t considered suitable for agriculture.

    Over's Removals

    Aldershot largely remained of little importance across the medieval period, throughout the Anarchy or during the English Civil War. The next time there was much to write home about was the arrival of the turnpike (a more well-kept and reliable road travellers could pay to use) that ran from Bagshot to Farnham in the 17th century. The road brought travellers, the travellers brought trade, the trade brought wealth and the wealth brought highwaymen!

    Yes, the sparse vegetation, stretches of road with long open sight lines, areas of woodland and forest, plus carriages laden with rich pickings made it the perfect hunting ground for all kinds of thieves and ne’er-do-wells (“Its daylight bleedin’ robbery!”). A litany of colourful characters made newspaper headlines across the country. The stories of the crimes and daring getaways sold like hotcakes and the most prolific and feared robbers became celebrities, The Golden Farmer, Mol Cutpurse, William Plunket, Claude Duval, Mary Bryant to name but a rather dodgy few. The most famous highwaymen of all, Dick Turpin, almost certainly travelled through the countryside around Aldershot on his horse Black Bess.

    19th Century

    It was the arrival of the first army training camp in 1854 during the Crimean War that put Aldershot most firmly on the map. In 1851 Aldershot’s population was recorded at 875, within just 10 years the population had grown to over 16,000. Along with the army personnel and their families came tradesmen, shopkeepers, tailors, brewers, builders, growers, ‘ladies of ill-repute’… Aldershot was a boom town.

    20th Century

    By 1914 Aldershot had become the biggest military camp in the UK, with 20% of the British army being stationed in or around the town. During WWII 330,000 Canadian troops alone passed through the town that today takes great pride in its role as ‘The Home of the British Army’.
