This Surrey town, population just over 11,000, lies on the right bank of the Mole river, with outer London just at its edge. Its existence has been documented since the time of Anglo Saxon England, approximately 880 AD. After a period of gradual pedestrianisation in the second half of the 1900s, its reputation grew and today its joint cinema/theatre is among its many features. The yearly London-Surrey cycle classic passes through the town, during which time many of the streets leading to the town centre close to traffic.
