    5 Quickfire Byfleet Facts

    1. 4 Quid
      The first record of Byfleet dates to 727, when the village was owned by Chertsey Abbey. By 1086, according to the Domesday Book, Byfleet consisted of 12 households with 7 villagers, 2 smallholders, 3 slaves, 6 acres of meadow, woodland, 1 mill, 1.5 fisheries, 1 church and was worth 4 pounds.
    2. Manor Born
      Byfleet Manor has had an illustrious past. One owner, Henry de Leybourne, was arrested at the order of Edward I for leaving the King’s service in Scotland and nipping back home for a spot of jousting with his mates. It later became a favoured home of the Black Prince (son of Edward III) who was also a big fan of jousting and bred his horses there. In the 1600s King Charles II gave the manor to his favourite mistress, Barbara Countess of Castlemaine before kicking her out and giving it to his new wife Catherine of Braganza. #Awkward!
    3. Inventive
      Local builder, W G Tarrant, was part of the team that created the world’s first articulated deep sea diving suit, which was tested in Tarrant’s builders’ yard in Byfleet by another local, Jim Jarratt. Mr Tarrant also invented the Tarrant triplane (although it crashed on its maiden flight at Farnborough, oops!). In 1911 Vickers arrived at Brooklands Airfield and carried on Byfleet’s tradition of engineering excellence by designing all kinds of military aircraft.
    4. During The War
      During WWII British and Canadian troops were stationed in Byfleet which also had an internment camp holding German prisoners of war. In the build up to the D-Day landings the village was virtually blocked for two days due to the number of vehicles and troops passing through on route to the coast.
    5. Fast Car
      After the military moved out, Brooklands with its many runways became a hugely popular motor racing circuit and several racing teams set up camp in the area, including a team racing Norton motorcycles and the 1953 Le Mans winners who raced British built C-type Jaguars.

    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.

    - Helen Williams – May 2021

    8th Century

    The first sign of settlement dates Byfleet’s earliest roots back to the Neolithic period with what may have been a small village. The first written record appeared in 727 when the King of Mercia, Alfred III gave the area to Chertsey Abbey. Byfleet was also logged in the Domesday Book when Byfleet was worth a wallet busting £4 (which today would just about buy you a coffee to go in one of the town’s many excellent cafes).

    Over's Removals

    By the time the Normans were stomping around, splitting up much of England and generally making themselves at home, the largely Saxon inhabitants were under the lordship of the Abbot of Westminster. However, as royals tended to do, they soon nabbed it back, William the Conqueror made the entire village and pretty much everything in Windsor Forest his own personal playground for hunting and riding. From then on it remained under royal control. Henry de Leybourne (those Normans again!) had been granted the land but made himself hugely unpopular with King Edward I when he skipped the King’s service in Scotland to attend a jousting tournament back home. Jousting was a big deal and another huge fan of Byfleet (and a champion jouster) was the Black Prince who trained and bred tournament horses there. Edward II did himself no favours when he granted Byfleet to Piers Gaveston who was not the most popular figure at court. He was particularly disliked by Edward’s wife, Isabella of France who refused to visit Byfleet again.

    19th Century

    Byfleet remained a royal manor until 1826, during which time it saw various kings and queens come and go, including a young Henry VIII who spent some of his childhood there. Another visitor was Geoffrey Chaucer in his role as Clerk of the Works. Although the best royal job has to go to Robert Bowyer, Miniaturist to King George III, who’s job entailed building items for dolls houses and he got to live in the Clock House.

    16th-20th Century

    Byfleet’s fortunes then rose and fell with its transport links. When the Wey Navigation Canal arrived in 1653, the good times rolled (or rowed). The next big shake up was the motor car. Brooklands became the world’s first purpose-built race-track in 1907. The need for speed was interrupted by the First World War and Vickers arrived building aircraft with mixed results. A number of new planes were tested taking off from Byfleet. Not all of them made it into the sky with a number of fatalities.

    20th Century

    The largest aircraft of WWI, the Tarrant Bomber, crashed at Farnborough during its first take off. Things hadn’t improved much for test pilots by WWII, on 2 January 1945 a Vickers Warwick GRV crashed at Rectory Lane, thankfully the pilot walked away while the test pilot was sent on another test flight later that same day. The town also saw a large number of Canadian troops passing through in the build-up to the D-Day landings that changed the course of the war.

    Modern Day

    Today this modern town is awash with good food, friendly shops and plenty of local events. Fairway obsessives will be pleased to know there are no fewer than 7 golf clubs within easy driving range. Literally! They’re so close you could almost hit a driver from one to the next (although locals might get a little annoyed with you for cutting through their gardens in order to take your next shot!).
