    5 Quickfire Walton-on-Thames Facts

    1. Flying Circus
      If you’re walking around WoT with a sense of déjà vu, convinced you’ve seen some sights before, there’s a chance you have. Monty Python’s Flying Circus used Walton as one of their primary filming locations. The town even features in the video for Always Look on the Bright Side of Life (and yes, you’ve now got that whistling bit in your head, you’re welcome!).
    2. Fast Car
      Hersham and Walton Motors (HWM) were a motor racing team that once competed in Formula 1. British racing legend Sir Stirling Moss’s first ever grand prix was in an HWM car. The company also opened the world’s first Aston Martin dealership which is still going to this day.
    3. High Court
      One notable resident who lived just outside the town was John Bradshaw, the chief judge at the trial of King Charles I. Bradshaw was a surprise, and some argued, bumbling choice, he missed the first three days of the trial!! because he was “Out of London” (no biggie John, it’s just the small trial of the King of England after a 6 year war!). During the trial he took to wearing a bullet proof hat and armour under his clothes. After finding the King guilty and sentencing him to death, he refused to allow him any last words, as a condemned man was legally no longer alive and therefore had no right to speak.
    4. Meet the Neighbours
      Other famous Walton residents have included; Dame Julie Andrews (actor, The Sound of Music), Madeline Albright (former US Secretary of State), Nick Lowe (musician, producer), Fay Ripley (actor, Cold Feet) and Herbert Hoover (31st US president).
    5. A Fine Romance
      In 1909 American romantic songwriter Jerome Kern stopped off in Walton during a boat trip down the river and popped into The Swan public house for a drink. He chatted to the barmaid/landlord’s daughter and within a year the two were married. Kern’s heartfelt hits included; The Way You Look Tonight, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes and Ol’ Man River.

    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

    Walton dates back to an early Celtic settlement, pre-dating the Anglo-Saxons or Romans. One ancient historian cited it as the spot where Julius Caesar crossed the Thames but evidence is ‘sketchy’ at best, however it certainly would have been a crossing point around the time.

    It remained little more than a hamlet but in 1086 it was sizeable enough to be included in the Domesday Book as ‘Waletona’ when the land was owned jointly by Edward de Sarisber (Salisbury) and Richard de Tonbrige.

    12th Century

    St. Mary’s Parish Church was most likely in place at this time although it was rebuilt in the 12th century. One strange relic inside the church is a scold’s bridle (an ancient device designed to punish gossips and liars) which was mentioned in Jerome K. Jerome’s classic Three Men in a Boat.

    18th Century

    The beginnings of the modern town lay with the construction of a wooden bridge by Mr Samuel Dicker in 1750. It was the first of many bridges over the Thames at Walton, two of which were captured by the painters Canaletto and Turner. The current bridge was built as recently as 2013.

    During the Edwardian period, boating and swimming had become the height of fashion and Walton was one of a number of riverside towns to host a regatta which attracted wealthy Londoners out of the city. The arrival of the railways brought both visitors and house hunters, looking to escape the smoke of London and set up home in leafy Surrey, just a short train journey from their businesses in the capital.

    The town was bombed heavily in WWII due to its proximity to the aircraft factory at Brooklands. After the war, Hersham & Walton Motors were building cars for new drivers as well as a racing car in which Stirling Moss competed in his first Formula One World Championship.
