    5 Quickfire Caterham Facts

    1. On Guard!
      In 1877 a guard’s depot was established at Caterham. This was the recruiting depot for the Grenadier, Coldstream, Scots, Irish, and Welsh Guards. It later became Caterham Barracks and among the many officers to have trained there was Sir Archibald David Sterling, the founder of the SAS.
    2. Caterham School
      Caterham School was originally based in Lewisham, London, the abolitionist and philanthropist William Wilberforce one of its founding governors. One of England’s most elite schools, it moved to Caterham in 1884.
    3. Bill Actually
      One of Britain’s most accomplished and best loved actors Bill Nighy is a local Caterham boy. “I was born in Caterham and I was just an ordinary kid brought up in an ordinary family so there were no high expectations, which is just as well really. I liked where we lived though.” His films include, Love Actually, Shaun of the Dead, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Another famous Caterham son is broadcaster Angus Deyton, former presenter of Have I Got News For You.
    4. Fast Car
      No quiz points for guessing Caterham Cars were founded in the town. The company began in 1973 when Lotus owner Colin Chapman took the much-loved Lotus 7 and decided to create a kit car, that car enthusiasts could build at home. The Caterham 7 was born and it’s still one of the most iconic British cars of all time.
    5. Ancient
      An ancient hillfort known as Cardinal’s Cap stands above Caterham Valley. In 1813 the signs of a Roman villa were found at the base of the camp which some believe may date back to the Neolithic period.

    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

    Iron Age

    The earliest signs of life at Caterham stand at War Coppice, also known as the Cardinal’s Cap. Now a Scheduled Monument, it is believed to have been an Iron Age hillfort. The next settlers to leave a mark on the area were the Romans (“What did they ever do for us?”). Around 100AD they created a road stretching from London to Brighton, whether they were there just for the fish and chips is largely debated by historians (or we might have made that bit up).


    Over's Removals

    Remaining fairly small, Caterham got along relatively peacefully through the tumultuous Anglo-Saxon period, it was the Normans who built the next lasting monument, St Lawrence Church, which was built not long after William the Conqueror gave King Harold one in the eye. By the time King John held the throne, Roger son of Everard de Gaist and grandson of Roger of Caterham gave the church and its lands to a monastery at Waltham Holy Cross. The abbots held a grant of ‘free warren, allowing them to hold the land for hunting (they would have employed local men to catch food for them) and collect taxes.

    Things continued untroubled, Caterham was untouched by the English Civil War, the various kings and queens who used much of Surrey as a playground left Caterham in peace, even highwaymen, who prowled much of the area didn’t seem to pick on the town,

    19th Century

    The next big thing was the arrival of Caterham Railway Station in 1856, which was built principally to help transport stone from Godstone village. The train also brought visitors to the area and allowed Londoners to set up home and commute into the city. Among those that came to the town was London Jeweller Charles Asprey who donated the Asprey Fountain to the people of Caterham in 1890, having been relocated several times, it still stands in the town.

    Other new arrivals included the Army. In 1877 a Guards Depot was built as a recruiting centre for Grenadier, Coldstream, Scots Irish, and Welsh Guards, with barracks holding 500 men. In 1938, with the threat of war, Caterham was to become home to another army installation, with 6 acres of land bought by the War Office, “Three groups of huts for incoming militiamen were erected at the east end of the sports ground – 17 barrack rooms and ablutions for 340 men.”

    Modern Day

    Today the town’s most recent and perhaps famous claim to fame is as the birthplace of Caterham Cars in 1973. Caterhams can still be seen driving along the leafy lanes of Surrey, a great symbol of life in this affluent and charming piece of England’s green and pleasant land.
