    6 Quickfire Redhill Facts

    1. Named & Tamed
      Until the arrival of industrial transport (around the 1800s) Redhill was little more than a collection of cottages in an area of marshy scrubland that had mostly been known as “Reygate Foreign” and seen as an outlying post of Reigate. The tiny hamlet got its name from its elevated position and the rich, red clay soil.
    2. Train Trouble
      On the 12th July, 1841, the London and Brighton Railway company opened their line and station at Hooley Lane. Then on the 26th May, 1842, South Eastern Railway opened their station a mile down the same lane. But the competing companies didn’t make things easy on the passengers. Any passengers needing connecting trains at both stations had a mile walk between the two.
    3. Boom Town Facts
      The railways brought a large workforce, hundreds of navvies helped build the two railway lines and three breweries quickly sprung up to keep them all well-watered. These were boom years and in just 10 years between 1851 and 1861 the town doubled in size, from 5,000 to over 10,000.
    4. Biggs Bad Ron
      Another weird train fact, Great Train Robber Ronnie Biggs lived at Alpine Road, Redhill on the day of his arrest.
    5. ‘er Nextdoor
      Other famous folk to have been born in Redhill or made it their home include; Nick Hornby (author), Sophie Raworth (newsreader), Chris Robshaw (rugby player), Edwina Curry (politician) and Aleister Crowley (occultist).
    6. Big Bang
      In 1868 Alfred Noble demonstrated his new invention, dynamite for the first time at Merstham quarry, just north of Redhill. Yes, the famous peace prize is named after the inventor of a deadly explosive.

    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

    While many towns can point to a landmark and proudly proclaim “That building’s older than America!”, Redhill is a comparatively ‘young pup’ by British historical standards.

    1800s

    Over's Removals

    Dig out a map of Surrey circa 1800 and you won’t find a trace of Redhill. Instead, a small scattering of farms and houses went under the title of “Reigate Foreign” in what was inhospitable marsh ground and certainly not deemed fit for building a town. The area was “intersected by meandering streams, the haunt of snipe and duck” and other than a few remote homesteads, that was pretty much it.

    It was the arrival of the railway line in 1841 that literally put Redhill on the map. New train lines made towns like Reigate a new idyll for those wanting to work in London but enjoy the charms of country living. These new middle-class commuters weren’t too keen on having a mainline station in their perfect town (they already had a small station) and so a new station was built away from the quite streets thanks to the convenient Redhill Gap that cut through the Downs. The new station sat in the area of Station Road and Redstone Hill. This was given the name Warwick Town. It was the re-siting of a post office from Red Hill Common that finally caused a name change and Redhill became official. However the two stations caused some difficulty, passengers getting off in Reigate would often have to walk a mile to Redhill for connecting services.

    The building of the train lines meant thirty navvies and before long the new township had not one but three breweries to keep these men well-watered.

    Having finally been put on the map, Redhill got off to life with a bang when Alfred Noble (whose name is honoured by the prestigious prizes) demonstrated his new invention, dynamite, in a quarry just outside the town in 1868. Prince Albert had also visited in 1853, laying the first stone of a new psychiatric hospital in Redhill. During the 1940s Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother’s two cousins would both live at the renamed Royal Earlswood Hospital.

    Over's Truck

    The arrival of the motorway, faster trains, the need for new housing have all seen Redhill grow which now includes Redhill Common, an area that has a number of listed buildings, some of which are older than America.
