In this issue of the Tribune, Gillian Hein gives us an update on Walton Heath Golf Club and its newly modified planning applications. You will also find a report by Patricia Brookwick on the completion of the Shelvers Way refurbishment programme. Finally, much time can be – and is - wasted looking for the right person to consult about an issue, eg a pothole or a pavement drain that needs clearing etc. Often these end up on plate of a local Councillor who then has the task of forwarding them to the appropriate person within the Council. As an additional service to our members, we are adding to our website, details of contacts within R&BBC and Surrey CC that you may require in any of these events. Also helpful notes on the role of a

Walton Heath Golf Club In the last edition of the Tribune, we referred to the applications submitted by the Golf Club for a new clubhouse complex (pictured above) on the south east side of the Dorking Road and new dwellings on the site of the existing clubhouse. The Club’s consultants have recently submitted a lengthy document which seeks to justify the proposals and address the Council’s and our own concerns. (Details are available on the Council’s web site ref 19/01513 and 01514.) In our opinion, the submission fails to address any of the major issues relating to the new clubhouse although it does propose a reduction in the number of detached dwellings from 4 to 3 on the existing club house site. This is to be welcomed as the Please mention T R I B U N E when responding to adverts

earlier layout was too cramped, although we still have some concerns on the final form of development once the site has been sold on. We have responded to the Clubs latest submission as we continue to believe that planning should not be given for such a development on the Green Belt, this will also be available on the Councils and the TWRA’s web sites. The Kitlands Site, Junction of Hurst Drive and Chequers Lane, Walton (Reference 19/01488) The applicants have now made some minor changes to the proposal for 4 detached dwellings and 10 flats. Our main concerns relate to the safety of pedestrians and vehicles along this narrow stretch of Chequers Lane where there are no footpaths. Surrey CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

County Council had previously objected but is now accepting the layout subject to conditions. The Residents Association had suggested traffic calming measures along this stretch but it appears that the Highways Authority considers these to be unnecessary. We are still looking into the possibility of a footpath through the woodland on the opposite side of Chequers Lane. 105-125 Ashurst Road, Tadworth (ref 18/02165) Several people have asked what is happening on the Farm Fencing site. Planning permission has been granted for 10 flats in 2 blocks with small car parks at either end, and work has recently started on the development. Other Matters The Carol Singing event in Jubilee Woodland, held on December 14th, was a success despite a wet and squally morning. We thank everyone who came and particularly the choir of the Church of the Good Shepherd and the

The next Litter Pick, as part of the Great British Spring Clean will take place in Tadworth and Walton at the end of March. The date is likely to be Sunday 22nd (or 29th - Rachel to clarify) so please put the date in your diary and look at our web site or the local press for details nearer the time. As ever, our thanks to those who participated in the autumn cleanup when, for once, there was less litter than usual. Hopefully, there will come a time when litter picks are unnecessary! We thank the Emergency Services –the Surrey Highway Authority, the Police and Fire Brigade for their quick responses during the recent wet and windy weather to the road blockages on the A 217 roundabout on December 14th, caused by fallen trees, and the problems on the A217 at Burgh Heath.

WALTON ON THE HILL VILLAGE FORUM

SUPPORT FOR NEW PAVILION

A

s we start not only a new year, but a new decade, I am personally excited by what our Village Forum will be doing in our community during 2020. I’d like to extend a special thank you to my entire committee and to all members involved in helping to keep our village in such good shape during 2019. We are currently preparing to launch a website for the Village Forum which we will use as our primary platform for communicating with our members along with all the other social media platforms. We are hoping to launch this towards the end of February and there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes to make this happen. I’m sure by now many of you have seen the new fingerpost road sign at Gun Corner in the centre of the village. We have received so many positive comments since it was installed, and I’d like to thank Jean Bye for helping to coordinate this and to Marcus Slegg of Heritage Finger Post Signs for returning a little more heritage back to our village. As a committee we feel strongly that as we move forward and things change around us that we continue to give a nod to the past, so that generations to come don’t forget what’s gone before. It’s also worth mentioning that our WaltonIn-Bloom team which Jean Bye does an excellent job in overseeing planted some 500 spring bulbs in early October in various village locations, so keep an eye out for some beautiful sprays of colour as spring comes around. On the same day we had a pond clean up with many families coming out to help. A big thank you to all who took part and to the Spaghetti Tree and Blue Ball for providing much needed sustenance. Many of you may have noticed how full Mere Pond was over the festive season, so

10 FEBRUARY 2020

lovely to see and although it overflowed slightly and did use the correct overflow drains, a blockage or two was spotted and has been reported to the council. The last time Mere Pond saw these levels was in 2013. David Larner and Robert Justice continue to do super work in and around the pond and as a Village Forum, we continue to work with the council to restore our pond and will continue to do so over the next few years with more work planned for this year subject to council approval. The biggest project currently being supported and undertaken by the Village Forum, is the refurbishment of the Sports Pavilion @ Howard Close. Many of you may not be aware of the genesis of this, so allow me to present a little background. The Walton Village Forum (WVF) was approached by the Walton Warriors Football Club in late 2018 as they were concerned about the state of the pavilion that has been there for some years and, although maintained by the council, had fallen into a state of disrepair and is barely useable. Couple this with a lack of ablution facilities and this means that users of the facilities at Howard Close end up using the surrounding woodland for their ablutions. Consequently, it was felt that action needed to be taken. As many of you are aware the Walton Warriors are one of our local community groups who utilise the football pitch at Howard Close and have approximately 120 members ranging in age from 6 to 14 years old. It became clear after speaking to the council that any initiative to make the pavilion fit for purpose would have to fall to the community to fund and so the WVF agreed to front this project.

T R I B U N E To advertise call 01737 222307 or visit www.mylocalpages.co.uk


WALTON ON THE HILL VILLAGE FORUM The project launched in October 2018 and has involved much correspondence with the council. Initial thinking was to replace and reposition the pavilion from its current position adjacent to the playground at Howard Close. A design consisting of two change rooms with shower, toilet, small kitchen and storage facilities was proposed and put to residents at a consultation hosted by the WVF on the 13th February 2019. Two possible positions were considered and after the consultation it became clear that only one of those positions would be supported and so armed with that information work began to obtain cost estimates. It became clear early on in this process that the cost of running utilities to the pavilion in a new position was going to be extortionate and so in late summer 2019 serious consideration was given to refurbishing the current pavilion while also increasing its size. Given it already has running water and electricity it was felt this would be significantly more cost effective. So where are we now; After taking the above into account, a planning application (19/02108/F) was submitted to the council on 24th October 2019 and has been overwhelmingly supported by the community. We are anticipating a planning decision early this year. I would like to extend a huge thank you to Ed Moore who, aside from being the chairman of the Walton Warriors Football Club, has been instrumental in creating the design in conjunction with the WVF committee and consulting with council planners. It goes without saying that without Ed’s involvement we wouldn’t be as far advanced as we are. At present we are obtaining quotes to understand the build cost, however fund raising has already begun in earnest and we have managed to raise approximately £17,000 to date with more events planned this year. In closing, I’d like to thank Pfizer on behalf

of the Walton Village Forum for their annual donation of £3000 which we will put to good use. It’s lovely to have the continued support of such a large corporate who are keen to work with us and make a contribution to the local community. Our first meeting of the year will be the AGM and it will be held on Tuesday 25th February 2020 at 8pm at the Breech Lane Community Centre. All are welcome so please feel free to come along and find out how all our exciting initiatives are progressing. Finally, I’d like to wish you all a happy and prosperous 2020 and I look forward to seeing you in and around the village.

WALTON OAKS, THE HERMITAGE & THE COTTAGE _ó=oçÄÉêí=oìÇÇÉää

efore the arrival of Pfizer in December 2001 there were three large houses occupying the site: Walton Oaks, The Hermitage and The Cottage and their residents played a significant part in the history of Waltonon-the-Hill and Tadworth. In 1750 a community existed near Walton-onthe-Hill named Ninehams, which later became Walton Oaks. On this site existed a public house called “Ye Crown” and some small dwellings and outhouses; ‘Ye Crown’ which became ‘Walton Crown’ about 1801 was later converted into a double cottage. The location of the site of ‘Ye Crown’ was discovered on Little Heath where Buckland Lane joins what is now the Dorking Road. This was probably at the top of Buckland Lane and was used by travellers when Buckland Lane was the main route south before the Turnpike road was built down Pebble Hill. The Pilgrims way crosses Buckland Lane.

An Act of Parliament in 1755 gave monarchical and parliamentary approval for the construction of a turnpike – ‘a road leading from the twelve-mile stone in the Town of Sutton in the County of Surrey to and through the Borough of Reigate to Povey Cross in the Parish of Charlwood…. and also the road leading from Tadworth upon Walton Heath, by the Windmill, to the bottom of Pebble Hill, leading to Betchworth, Leigh and Charlwood’.

He drew up an indenture between himself and the Reverend Thomas Clare and his daughter-in-law Miss Bishop. This stated that he had granted a lease “ to Reverend T Clare for 70 years or death upon a condition of building a substantial residence on the said land” and that “they will erect within two years at their sole expense a dwelling house with coach house and stable costing £1,000.” Therefore it can be assumed that Walton Oaks was built in about 1820 and for many years up to the turn of the 20th Century was also known as Clare Park. 1829 – On the death of Reverend Clare, Walton Oaks reverted to Humphrey Hall who then leased it out to several tenants for about £50 per annum until 1848. 1848 – Josiah Squire married Sophia Farran the sister in law of Rev. Ambrose Hall and purchased the property. 1860 – John Phillip Fischer became the next owner at Michaelmas of that year. 1865 – Fischer aged 64 died on 25 May and Walton Oaks then passed to his son Thomas Halhead Fischer. There are plaques in St Peter’s Church in memory of both John Phillip Fischer and his wife Jane and other family members. 1884 – On 8 August Thomas Fischer borrowed from a Miss AN Hill and others £3,500 with interest. 1889 – Thomas failed to pay back the loan and on 10 July Miss Hill and others foreclosed and became the owners of Walton Oaks. Hampton and Sons then sold the property to James William Benson, a Bond Street, jeweller and he made many alterations to the gardens and outbuildings. The Gardener’s Cottage referred to in the sale particulars remains to this day and is now Bothy Cottage in Buckland Lane. 1899 – The next owners were the Reids who also bought Bushfield Farm and the Hermitage

Farm and were very much involved in the village life of Walton-on-the-Hill. In 1904, 6 members of the Reid Family were original members of Walton Heath GC. 1920 – After Herbert E Reid died his widow sold the property to Frederick William Bellamy. The architects Mewes and Davis extended the original house in 1920, and in 1924 the architect Percy Morley Horder designed the formal gardens, pond and temple. 1928 – Bushfield Farm and the Hermitage Farm became Walton Oaks Farm. 1929 – On 22 November, BF de Boulers Lloyd, an English born naturalised American oil millionaire bought the Walton Oaks Estate for £57,000. Many alterations were made to the house, lodge and estate at an estimated cost of c. £150,000. A resident house staff of about eighteen were employed and two ‘daisy diggers’ to maintain the lawns. 1934 – Errett Lobban Cord [1894-1974] an American car manufacturer and The Lloyds swapped residences during the summer months. The Cords had a fabulous mansion and estate in Beverly Hills, California. 1936 – BF de Boulers Lloyd disappears in New York never to be found and Mrs. G Lloyd returns to America to live in New York. Lloyd was still a Walton Heath GC member in 1937-8 and his addresses in the member’s book were 136, Liberty Street, New York and Walton Oaks, Walton-on-the-Hill. The house was then

The Guinness family rented it and The Duke of Windsor stayed there. 1939 – Simon Marks the Chairman of Marks and Spencer from 1916 until 1964 lived there. 1940 – During WWII in the latter part of 1940, Walton Oaks became part of the Canadian 1st Infantry Division Headquarters. 1944 - Lloyd was declared legally dead. 1945 – Mrs. Genevieve Lloyd his wife died intestate and as there were no children the Alliance Assurance Co foreclosed on the mortgage. 1948 – The estate was then sold to Vitamins Ltd for £42,500 and developed as a Research Centre and Experimental Farm. The company altered the inside of the house, turning plush bedrooms and up to date kitchens into laboratories and offices. 1968 - Beechams Pharmaceuticals acquired the Vitamins business and Walton Oaks was used for Human Veterinary R&D. 1977 to 1989 – The site became purely veterinary – Beecham Pharmaceuticals Animal Health Research Centre. After the merger with SK it continued as an animal health site housing Smith Kline Beecham Animal Health UK R&D and Marketing. 1995 – Pfizer took over the animal health division of Smith Kline Beecham and acquired Walton Oaks, an Edwardian country house set in 39 acres of parkland. 1999 – Planning was agreed with the stipulation that the new office complex should not exceed the aggregate area of the existing buildings, which, once the various outhouses and ancillary buildings were taken into account, gave Pfizer a floor area of 23,353 square metres. The new headquarters designed by Sheppard Robson is based on the Panopfican plan form developed in the 18th century under the philosophy of controllable activity, for prisons and asylums. 2001 – Pfizer opened in the December at a cost of £75 million wins an RIBA design award in June

Pfizer donated for a token payment of £1, part of its land, a site of Special Scientific Interest covering 70 acres and known as Dawcombe Nature Reserve, to the Surrey Wildlife Trust. Going back in time the owners of both Walton Oaks and The Hermitage, who claimed in its respect the right to graze 100 cattle and 25 sheep with the right to estovers and the right of turbary and the right to take gravel sand and loam over the whole of the land. In 1983, two of the three properties for which grazing rights had been registered still existed: Walton Oaks and The Hermitage, both by then in the ownership of Beechams Pharmaceuticals. The golf club then sold Little Heath, south of the motorway, to Beechams in 1984 and part of the deal was that their rights-of-common would be extinguished.

NORTH LODGE AT ENTRANCE TO WALTON OAKS In 1929 Gerald Warren F.R.I.B.A carried out alterations to a Victorian house, The Lodge at the entrance to Walton Oaks [Dorking Road]. R Randal Phillips in ‘The House Improved’ published by Country Life in 1931 illustrated the house, which remains to this day at the entrance to Pfizer. Eric French born in Ireland c. 1915, moved with his parents to England before he was one year old. The family settled in Tadworth and he lived in The Lodge. French was a motorcycle speedway rider who rode for the Wimbledon Dons and New Cross Rangers in the 1930s and 40s and represented England in test matches. In the next edition of the Tribune, Robert Ruddell looks at the many residents who occupied Walton Oaks, The Hermitage and The Cottage after Ambrose Hall’s arrival in Walton-onthe-Hill in 1792.

GARDEN VIEW

A GAME OF TWO HALVES

F

or me February is where the gardening year begins...twice!

First - Reaping last year’s rewards: If you were industrious in the autumn, you could now be benefiting from a lovely display of snowdrops (Gallanthus) and Irises. My favourite snowdrops are G ‘Atkinsii’, which are tall with long, graceful flowers and G. nivalis ‘Viridapicis’ with sweet, green tipped flowers. It’s said they’re best planted ‘in the green’ in Spring but I’ve had lots of success with packaged bulbs planted in the autumn so they’re definitely worth trying. As for irises, the deep blue Iris ‘Joyce’ is hard to beat especially on my poor, free draining soil. I planted a witch hazel as soon as we moved into our present house; Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Pallida’. I can’t live without fragrance in my garden and at this bare, drab time of year the wonderfully scented pale-yellow flowers lift my spirits. I discovered we’d inherited an evergreen Clematis (C. armandii). I’d never grown it before but it’s worth seeking out. It needs a warm wall or fence and well-drained soil then rewards you by being frost-hardy and producing lovely creamy, scented flowers at this time of year. Second - Planning this year’s display Perhaps you didn’t manage to plan ahead last year. But don’t panic; the beauty of gardening is that the seasons keep rolling round so make sure you use February to ensure your summer display is top notch. February is

18 FEBRUARY 2020

definitely the month to start sowing seeds. Fill pots or seed trays with seed compost then firm and level the surface. Sprinkle seeds on to the surface of the compost then cover with a layer of fine grit. Water well with a fine spray. Cover with clear plastic (a polythene bag will do nicely) and remove it once the seeds germinate. Learn from my mistake one year and don’t forget to label the pots! Potting up summer bulbs is generally left until late spring, but I always pot up one or two pots in February. It allows them to get established and provides a nice early display for my patio. Happy gardening. By Rachael Leverton
