Why use Over's Halsmere removals…

5 Quickfire Haslemere Facts

  1. Play It Again Sam
    Arnold Dolmetsch settled in Haslemere, in 1917 having moved from France. He had previously studied music at the Royal College of Music and how did he thank the nation? He built an instrument shop and popularized the squeaky, ear shattering, wind-instrument-of-torture commonly known as the recorder! School music teachers and parents have been forced to suffer nerve-jangling renditions of London’s Burning ever since!
  2. Gibbet Hill
    Just outside the town is Gibbet Hill. Today it offers stunning views, but from the Middle Ages it held more gruesome sights and was a place of execution. In the 1700-1800’s the hill was used to display the swinging bodies of highwaymen displayed in metal cages called ‘gibbets’. This area of Surrey had become a happy hunting ground for Dick Turpin and others and the gibbets were hung to deter similarly minded rogues and robbers.
  3. Bit Rude!
    The poet Alfred Lord Tennyson lived in Haslemere. He was poet Laureate during much of Queen Victoria’s range who described him as, “…very peculiar looking, tall, dark, with a fine head, long black flowing hair and a beard, oddly dressed.” Bit harsh your majesty!
  4. Brass Neck
    The unscrupulous Queen Vic was also at the foremost thoughts of Haslemere’s brass band. Having formed in 1837, their very first public performance was about as high-profile as it gets when in 1838 they ordered to play at the Queen’s coronation. So, absolutely no pressure there then!?!
  5. Who You Gonna Call?
    The Georgian House Hotel has had some lively guests over the years including ‘The man in the pin-striped suit’. Reports from guests and staff tell of a ‘well-dressed man’ who has been seen knocking books from shelves, slamming doors and generally being a right pain in the afterlife. Activity is said to be most prevalent in rooms 11 and 12, in case you’re thinking of dropping by.

Thank You Over’s

See what Over’s customers are saying…

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

Over's Removals

The first indication of a settlement in Haslemere dates to 1180 and the building of a chapel. The first written record came in 1221 when the village was granted a market and the original well from this time can still be seen at the creatively titled Well Lane.

It was Richard II who put the town on the map, granting license for a fair. Although it had died out, the fair was revived in 1984 and continues to this day. Taking place on the early May Bank Holiday in the High Street, it includes a town criers competition where the winner receives the Tennyson Trophy in honour of former resident the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson.

Haslemere remained fairly unremarkable for hundreds of years, it was the arrival of stagecoaches that brought the first trouble. Much of this area of Surrey was plagued by highwaymen and Haslemere was no different. highwaymen would be hung on nearby Gibbets Hill to deter others. But it didn’t work, in fact, one highwaymen was supposedly a local preacher (highway robbery was certainly a more unusual ‘second job’ for the clergy). Another colourful account is of a ‘genteel villain’ who according to one newspaper (the newspapers of the day lapped up tales of highwaymen and their daring deeds!) proclaimed “Pray ladies, don’t be frightened. I am in distress and money I must have”.

19th Century

All was peaceful again until the railroads advanced. Hundreds of navvies arrived in the area, laying tracks, clearing woodland and drinking, well, like navvies. In July 1855 PC James Freestone and Inspector William Donaldson arrived at the King’s Arms public house to help enforce the strict curfew. According to contemporary accounts, the Inspector was polite and even allowed the remaining drinkers to finish their drinks then escorted Thomas Woods and his three companions out the door. The men waited outside where Woods shouted, “There is the Crusher that had the impudence to put his hands on my shoulder.” A fight broke out during which time PC Freestone escalated matters by breaking his truncheon on Woods’ head! Undeterred, Woods attacked Inspector Donaldson with an iron bar. The inspector was fatally wounded in what came to be known as the Haslemere Riot. A blue plaque commemorates the event.

Other notable names to have left their mark in Haslemere include Arnold Dolmetsch and his family who arrived in the town in the 1800s and introduced his invention, the descant recorder to a forever ungrateful nation. Yes, anyone who has sat through a school recorder recital has Arnold Dolmetsch to thank!

​Sir Arthur Conan Doyle also lived in the town at Undershaw between 1897 to 1907. It was here that he wrote The Hound of the Baskervilles having come to Haslmere after his wife was diagnosed with tuberculosis. He’d been told the air in Haslemere would be beneficial for her health and it must have worked, despite being given mere months to live, Louisa lived another 14 years.

So there you go, the inventor of ‘the world’s greatest mind’ would attest that Haslemere is good for you health! There are excellent commuter links and some superb eateries and pubs, friendly locals but if you are asked to leave at closing time, please don’t start a riot.
