    5 Quickfire Leatherhead Facts

    1. No Panico!
      Leatherhead was once the seat of the County Court until it moved to Guildford. Records show that one session included discussions on what the county should do if the Spanish Armada landed.
    2. Rock On
      Built in the former village hall, Surrey Recording Studio went on to work with some big name British stars such as Joan Armatrading, The Police, Godley & Crème, Rick Astley, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Bros and The Wombles!
    3. Oops!
      Perhaps local man H.G. Wells had a bit of a grudge with Leatherhead when he wrote War of the Worlds? On day ten of the Martian invasion, Leatherhead is completely obliterated! What makes it even worse is the story’s unnamed narrator had just sent his wife to Leatherhead for safety. “Oops! My bad!”
    4. Don’t Panic!
      The town gets another sci-fi namecheck in Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy as the hometown of main protagonist Arthur Dent before he heads on his adventure.
    5. Famous As Folk
      Comedian and presenter Mel Giedroyc and her movie/TV director sister Coky Giedroyc grew up in Leatherhead, as did Tom Felton, aka Draco in the Harry Potter movies. Marc Bolan joined his first band (John’s People) in Leatherhead. Land speed record breaker Donald Campbell also made Leatherhead home, as has acting legend and movie icon Sir Michael Caine. Yes. Alfie, Scrooge, Charlie Croker, Lieutenant Bromhead, Alfred the Butler and all-round nice guy, Sir Michael is a keen supporter of local events.
    6. Good Times
      The Edmund Tyler pub was named after the man responsible for providing entertainment for Queen Elizabeth I who had the excellent title of the ‘Master of Revels’. Every pub should have one of those!

    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

    Early Days

    Iron Age flints have been found in the area and hint at the earliest settlers in Leatherhead. The original village was mentioned in the will of none other than Alfred the Great, arguably Britain’s greatest ruler (the name’s a bit of a giveaway!).

    Over's Removals

    Leatherhead was an important town, it was where the court would meet, disputes would be settled and judgments handed out. But King Henry III downgraded the town’s fortunes when he awarded the county court to Guildford instead.

    Local dignitaries and the important folk of the day did convene in Leatherhead in 1588 to devise a plan of defence. The impending Spanish Armada was so feared that across the South East town leaders where getting together to discuss what should be done if the King of Spain’s men breached British shores.

    17th Century

    In the 1600 and 1700s a number of turnpike roads were built connecting Leatherhead with Arundel, Bognor Regis and Littlehampton. A time when newspapers celebrated the daring exploits of dandy highwaymen, Leatherhead’s roads remained mostly untouched by the villainous robbers who prowled much of Surrey.One visitor to the town was Austen who came number of times to visit family at Bookham. Some Leatherhead residents point to the fictitious town of Highbury in Emma, first published in 1815, which they believe was based on Leatherhead.

    John Wesley also stopped by, the founder of the Methodist movement and strong anti-drinking campaigner gave his last sermon at Kingston House. It was said he gave over 42,000 sermons in his lifetime, but he died a week after his visit to Leatherhead.

    Over's Truck

    Leatherhead became a training ground in the First World War and a garrison town in the Second World War. Canadian troops in particular were stationed here and are celebrated in some of the street names.

    Modern Day

    Today it’s a vibrant and charming town with excellent transport links and quick access to the stunning Surrey countryside.
