I was the first HEAD GIRL of Bishop Simpson in 1956. Maureen Clarke. We did not have a piano in the early days and I would play assembly hymns on my violin. I still have my PRIZE book, THE COMPLETE WORKS OF SHAKESPEARE, which has traveled the world with me. I remember the school with fondness .

Wonham Manor. 1906.

Comment 1

Sandra Arthurs (nee Wonham) from Kamloops, BC Canada posted this comment on Wednesday 06 January 2010 04:16:00.

This was in my Dad's family at some point in time - not sure of when but was there in Aug 2008 but only at the gate. Unfortunately, we could not get into the grounds. Would have been fab if we could have!!

Gemma knight from Bexley posted this comment on Friday 14 October 2011 14:21:00.

My father in father - law's mother grew up here as daughter of the housekeeper and gardener and he often visited in his childhood in the 1930's. I would love to be able to take him back to visit so if anyone knows how that would be great!


Comment 3

Peter Tucker from Reigate posted this comment on Wednesday 19 October 2011 16:06:00.

@ Sandra Arthurs: if this British history website (www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=42950) is reliable, the Wonham family appear to have owned Wonham Manor only until 1646.


Comment 4

Ashley Wonham from Camden, NSW, Australia posted this comment on Monday 06 February 2012 00:31:00.

I am also a Wonham. we dont know much about our history but I would love to know more... Rumor through the family is that the Wonhams lost the Manor due to gambling debts?

I have always wanted to go and see Wonham Manor... Maybe one day :-)

My maternal grandmother was a Wonham and I am doing history into the family and wondered if anyone can give me any details of the history of the Manor, Mill and Lane


Comment 15

Ken Dason from Burton on Trent posted this comment on Friday 11 August 2017 10:57:56.

After reading the comments posted. Comment 8 Lesley makes reference to my uncle Arthur Busby, the gardener. As a small boy, our family spent time during one summer (late 60's?)at the gate house for our holiday. From a northern industrial town (Scunthorpe) days spent in the country, exploring the woods and riding in the grass box on the tractor was heavenly. If business takes me in that direction, I would love to have a look at the place again after all these years.


Comment 16

Georgia Fitzgerald from reigate posted this comment on Sunday 26 November 2017 15:56:10.

Hello Comment 9 - Jason Hughes, are you still living there? If so I am a photographer and I am doing a project on ancient places of beauty would you let me know if your interested in letting me come visit one day. I live in reigate :) Georgia


Comment 17

jacqueline skinner from weymouth posted this comment on Friday 20 April 2018 21:22:05.

My grandparents lived in the gate house in the late 70s. Grandma being the housekeeper and grandad the gardener. As mentioned previously, i too swam in the pool, road my pony which was kept in the paddock next to the walled garden and walked across the stepping stones on the lake. I would wake up in the bedroom at the back of the bungalow with the horses looking threw the window. Does anyone remember the tortoise who used to pop up all around the garden? I believe my grandparents move when the De-Lazlo's moved on. I also remember 'wilkie' and Mr Mac but more by name than face as i was very young and enjoying the freedom of being an imaginary princess that the De-Lazlo's and this beautiful property allowed me to be. Such memories are priceless!!!

Alexandra Wolfenden from Manchester posted this comment on Saturday 16 June 2018 08:54:57.

Thatch Cottage, Linkfield Lane, Redhill. Unknown date. F. Frith & Co. Ltd.

Comment 1

Serge Boon from Goedereede Netherlands posted this comment on Sunday 25 August 2013 00:55:00.

I lived in Redhill in the late sixties and early seventies (Regent Crescent).I remember passing the cottage on my way to school(Woodside)

I was looking for a picture of the school when i came across this picture.I remember it very well it was much more in dissrepare than on the photo (which must be late 40's or 50's)because I do not recall the roof in the background.I remember the old man that lived in the house.He lived alone and judging by his looks he d?dn't have a housekeeper or anyone else to look after him.He sometimes gave a barly sweet.I never knew his name,but after he passed away the cottage became a ruin.The letter box sparks some memories.My mother asked me to deliver christmas cards to the neighbours.Instead of posting them directly. I put them in the letter box,when I told her they were in the red post office box she was not amused.There were no adresses or stamps on the envelopes.She had to wait in the cold until the postman came to empty the letter box.Later I went to Springvale school across to the road.I moved back to the Netherlands in 1975 and visited in 1986 and was supprised to see how Redhill center had changed.If you have any info or foto's of Woodside school it would be welcome.I only have vivid memories of the old school on Linkfield lane.It was an old Victorian or Edwardian house which was demollised in the seventies to make room for a new estate,


Comment 2

Alan Cross from Newbury posted this comment on Friday 30 August 2013 12:03:00.

My comments are similar to Serge Boom exept I remember it from 1950/-/60 period. My uncle lived and was caretaker of Water Research Offices next door which was Ashmead, 18, Linkfield Road. The cottage did look as above in the early 1950's, sitting on the courner of the then un-madeup Park Road. I remember my uncle talking to the old man who lived there and still have a letter that would have been posted in the mail box shown. By the early 1960's the thatch was preety run down, I heard thst the occupant had died. I seem to remember returning briefly in 1968 by which time the rof had collapsed and 20 years on i think it is now built over with flats. If Serge is still looking, I can help him with photos of what became the school he attended. I am looking for history of that house.


Comment 3

Jill Goulder from Lewes posted this comment on Tuesday 12 June 2018 17:28:01.

I'm responding about Woodside School. My great-aunt Sylvia Lloyd ran the school - I never went there but remember her well; my aunt on the other side of my family, Sylvia Goulder, taught there too. I have a photo of my parents' wedding reception in the grounds of Woodside, but I don't know how to upload a photo within this Comments section. Sylvia Lloyd's sister Violet Lloyd (whom I often stayed with in the 60s-70s) lived at 12 Oxford Rd, backing onto Linkfield Lane, and I think the cottage in the photo was opposite the end of her back garden.

I was born at Chilmead Farm in 1949 and Fred Arnold (above) was my grandfather. I remember being given pushed down the lane in my pram by Mable Bassett and I remember the milking she'd and the bull in the yard. I also spent many happy hours on the back of the tractor and riding the cows back from the field for milking. We used to visit the Stevens family who lived in the cottage on the bend of the lane. I have a photograph of the farmhouse and photograph of my grandfather that was in the national news when he found the body of gentleman who had committed suicide.

Somebody must remember the stately house close to Chilmead Farm. Owned by the Reeves family. They most likely owned the farm at one time. The house was not on Cormongers Lane but on the road heading across the marsh.

Entrance to Capenor, Nutfield. Unknown date. Allen Stores.

Comment 1

Bruce Richardson from Heswall posted this comment on Monday 21 January 2013 21:39:00.

Capenor was originally the name of what is now Robert Denholm House. This is the old entrance by the Lodge. Coopers Hill Road is on the right of the frame, the roof on the right still exists.

When the estate was broken up in the mid 1960's the name of Capenor was taken by the buildings that where the stables, behind the lodge in Coopers Hill Road.


Comment 2

Stella Granville (ex Skelton) from Redhill posted this comment on Sunday 13 May 2018 10:40:21.

Hello Bruce. I stayed with my aunt, Christiane Hughes, who bought the one corner of Capenor that was the old stables. She did massive conversions on it. I remember your mother. Also the Tophams who lived next door.

This includes The Great Doods Pigeon Loft of 18 Doods Road, which was commandeered for the war effort and kept under armed guard. 6 of the Pigeons got the Dickens Medal from the PDSA. By brother now lives there and I would love to be able to get a copy of this photo, if possible. Regards Beth Howell.

Hi Beth, oddly enough I live in the next road, and dug up a WW1 medal belonging to a Clement Cecil Clay who lived at 20 Doods Road until his death in 1973 - but he was originally from Chilvers Coton, Nuneaton - your neck of the woods! Regards John Griffiths-Colby
