    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

    In 1767 the Reverend Gilbert White wrote The Natural History Of Selborne in which he described Sunbury as, “one of those pleasant villages lying on the Thames, near Hampton Court”. And in some respects little has changed. Yes, the roads are a little busier and there are a few more coffee shops, but it remains a truly charming spot that feels more like a village than a commuter friendly hub on the outskirts of the one of the world’s most vibrant cities. It is of course both.

    Over's Removals

    If you’re thinking of moving to Sunbury you won’t be the first, the earliest signs of settlement in the area are funerary urns, dating back to the Bronze Age (around 3300 – 1200 BC). There is also evidence of a bowl barrow (burial site) known as Cloven Barrow.

    900s

    The location was mentioned in the Sunbury Charter of 962AD, where it appears as Sunnanbyrg. King Eadgar awarded much of the land to the Bishop of Winchester (one of the richest men in Britain at the time). The name derives from Sunna (a chieftain) and burgh, which was a fortified town, created by Alfred the Great to help deter Viking invasions. By 1086 Sunbury was sizeable enough to have been included in the Domesday Book where is appears as Sunneberie.

    1700s

    Sunbury remained unspoilt, it avoided getting dragged into the English Civil War, in the 1700s it was bypassed by major coaching roads or canals. Perhaps the most notable event came in 1889 when a group of music hall stars met in the Magpie Hotel to create a group to raise money for good causes. The named themselves the Grand Order of Water Rats and are still going strong today. Over the years members have included some of the biggest names in entertainment; Charlie Chaplin, Oliver Hardy, Stan Laurel, Tommy Cooper, Sir Bruce Forsyth, Bob Hope, Sir Norman Wisdom and many more.

    20th Century

    A major shake-up in 1965, saw most of Middlesex absorbed into Greater London. Small pockets such as Sunbury-on-Thames were welcomed as parts of Surrey. Not everyone was quite so understanding, in fact, despite it being made official, the Royal Mail didn’t accept the change until as late as 1996 and continued to class it Middlesex. Many letter writers and locals also refused to accept the ending of Middlesex and stubbornly clung on to the old county address.

    Sunbury has fine sporting credentials, it’s been home to London Irish RFC since 1932. Every July the town also hosts the Sunbury Amateur Regatta, a colourful and lively event set around Rivermead Island.
