    5 Quickfire Bordon Facts

    1. Doomed
      When the 1851 census was taken Bordon had more pubs than teachers. In total there were 30 farmers, 19 bricklayers, 8 blacksmiths, 8 pubs, 7 broom makers, 4 teachers, 3 shepherds, 2 policemen and 1 chimney sweep.
    2. Going Green
      Bordon sits in a ‘Green Grid’ which has been created to encourage vital wildlife to protect the eco system. The area now has over 60 miles of paths for cycling and dog walking for those that enjoy the great outdoors. The old Quebec Barracks (the former home of the Green Jackets) has also been bought as part of a wider scheme to create one of the country’s first ‘eco-towns’.
    3. Big Bang
      Bordon has historic links with the army and has also been home to the Highland Light Infantry, Somersetshire Light Infantry and Devonshire Regiment. There is still the Longmore Army Ranges firing range in forest land just to the south of the town and there was once a special military railway.
    4. Canadian Protection
      The Canadian Army were stationed in Bordon during both world wars. If you’re out and about you might see the concrete slabs that once held tanks and armoured vehicles and the town continues to celebrate its links with Canada.
    5. A Bit Special
      There are several Sites of Special Scientific Interest in the area, as well as Special Protection Areas and the Weald which is within the South Downs National Park. All this protected land is ideal for twitchers and nature lovers as there are a number of rare species and a really diverse spectrum of wildlife and plants.

    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 settlers moving to Bordon arrived during the Iron Age and built a hill fort at Walldown. The next people to really leave their mark were the Romans, as well as evidence of a few villas in the area, the big event of the Roman Era was a battle at Woolmer between Emperor Constantius Chlorus and Allectus, both fighting to take control of Britain. Subsequently a few collections of coins dating to the era have been unearthed throughout the area and they may well be connected to the battle (some historians claim they may have been buried by fleeing soldiers).

    13th Century

    Over's Removals

    The introduction of the name Bordon begins in 1230, when it was actually ‘Burdunesdene’ bur (burgh) = fortified settlement, dun = hill, den = valley, which suggests it was a hill fort above a valley. Like many old English place names, it became simplified over the centuries.

    Close to where Blackmoor Golf Course now lies was a ‘Warren’ a Norman invention, it was an area kept to breed rabbits which were a luxury for both meat and their fur. Henry III also gave Blackmoor land to the Knights Templar who maintained a manor there.

    One surprising name to be linked with the area is Henry VIII. At the time still known as Prince Hal, Henry was made Ranger of Woolmer, a title he held until he became King and went on to develop a love of wedding cake.

    19th Century

    In 1863 the War Department purchased 781 acres for training grounds not far from the Army’s new head quarters at Aldershot. Two camps were built, one of them Bordon Camp which played important roles in numerous conflicts such as the build up to D-Day in the Second World War. The first camp at Bordon was built in 1899 by the Highland Light Infantry, other troops to eventually be stationed there included regiments from Wiltshire, Devonshire, Somerset, Argyll and Sutherland Borderers, Royal Engineers and more. Additional camps were built during WWII, including camps for Canadian troops stationed in the area. The camps even had their own railway network running between them. Army firing ranges have also been in operation in Longmoor Forest just to the south of the town.

    Modern Day

    In 2009 Bordon was unveiled as one of the government’s new Eco Towns, with plans to become carbon neutral. Locals, initially in favour, soon campaigned against the plans which required new roads and infrastructure, a loss of forest, wildlife habitat and protestors claimed the consultation process had been rigged. Funding was cut by half, the scheme waned and today the good green folk of Bordon pursue their own eco targets to make the town a greener place to live.
