Frenches Road Schools, Redhill. Circa 1910.

Comment 1

Ella Shilling from Redhill posted this comment on Wednesday 16 January 2013 12:50:00.

I live in the old school now! It's beautiful. I'd really like a copy of the photograph from 1910, anyone know how I can get a copy? Thanks.

I was the last head girl of Frenches road school, before relocating to Bishop Simpson where I was fortunate enough to be 1st head girl. I am still in touch with Mr Eccles who had a holiday with me in Sydney some years ago.We met as adults over here which was quite a change as I was allowed to be in charge ! He is now nearing the end of his life, and I shall miss him terribly.

Godwin Sagay from Benin City, Nigeria. posted this comment on Thursday 18 July 2013 14:19:00.

Red hill town has always fascinated me as an ideal place to raise a child in the Lonon sub-orb. It's my second visit here and I never stop loving the place. I live near the Frenches Pond and every day I make it a point of duty to watch the lovely swans in the pond.


Comment 4

Tom Gammons from Redhill posted this comment on Friday 20 December 2013 17:17:00.

I was the one of the last schoolchildren to attend what was by the known as the Frenches Annexe of St Bede's School, in 1989. It closed after Christmas that year and, bar a brief period as a teacher training centre, was left derelict for the best part of two decades, until 2008 when development finally began on converting the beautiful (and still sound) buildings to residential accommodation. It was apparently touch-and-go for a while, as the downturn at that time clearly caused the developers to down tools while further funds were found. Happily though, after a good four years, the project was finally completed, and from what I understand to a good standard - the development won an award I believe. It's gratifying to see these buildings essentially as they were, albeit with modern additions but retaining core character, functioning in a relevant way for 21st century life. One of Redhill's few success stories in terms of rejuvenating - rather than rejecting - its Victorian heritage.


Comment 5

Stuart Bruce from REDHILL posted this comment on Thursday 24 July 2014 14:29:00.

I have always admired this building and very pleased to see it restored, was very sadto see it in ruins for nearly 20 years.

Hillside School, Reigate. Unknown date.

Comment 1

David Nicholas Ranson from Fort Myers, FL, USA posted this comment on Sunday 14 June 2015 18:06:00.

This the front view facing Reigate Hill Road. The front door was rarely used during my time (1947-51)except for parents at the beginning of term. Date of this photo could be anywhere during the 1940s.


Comment 2

J. D. Krainock from Redding, CA posted this comment on Monday 03 April 2017 08:06:00.

I attended from Dec. 54 to May, 55. Mr. B was Headmaster. I cannot remember which house I was in (Lions, Dragons, Unicorns) Remember Matron? A very good time, long ago. I cannot locate the school on Google earth. JDK


Comment 3

David Nicholas Ranson from Fort Myers, Florida posted this comment on Thursday 17 August 2017 10:54:02.

Mr. Krainock: the school remained vacant following the death of Mr. Bannister and was finally sold off for redevelopment: houses, I think. The matron I remember was Miss Redlich, who I though was Austrian but was apparently French. P.S. I was a Dragon . . . .


Comment 4

Roger Noble from Burnham on Crouch posted this comment on Thursday 16 May 2019 12:31:36.

We have formed an association for the old boys for Hillside School, Godalming to where Hillside was moved in 1940. We have traced 45% of the 380 boys who went to Hillside but would love to hear from the Reigate pupils.

Stone House, Reigate. 1907. F. Frith & Co. Ltd.

Comment 1

Di S. from Reigate posted this comment on Friday 03 May 2019 21:10:59.

Wondering if anyone knows the history of the original owners of Stone House? I have heard that one of them was an eminent horticulturist (perhaps associated with the RHS?) and planted a number of non-native trees and shrubs in his garden at Stone House. We believe that some of the trees in our current garden (which would have originally been part of the wider grounds of Stone House) were perhaps part of his garden. We have two huge Redwoods which are some of the tallest trees in the area.

"Hethersett", Reigate. 1920. Unknown publisher.

Comment 1

Patricia Aubrey from Ascot, Berkshire posted this comment on Saturday 18 June 2011 12:15:00.

Hethersett belonged to my great-uncle - Julius Auerbach and lived there with his wife, Helena Auerbach from 1894 to 1956. It is our family home.

However,unfortunately, because my father, Harold Auerbach, his nephew, did not continue the family busines - Dreyfus & Co - Julius's wife, Helena, left the house to the secretary who in turn left it to the RNIB in 1952 to set up a Residential home for the blind. We have several photos of the house and some original etchings. The house should have gone back to the family but we did not claim it. I went to visit it myself in 1991. If you would like further information about the house or its owner, Julius Auerbach - please contact me via my e-mail address: - Patricia Aubrey (formerly Auerbach)- great-niece of Julius Auerbach.


Comment 2

Charlotte Copus-Hayes from Clapton, London posted this comment on Friday 27 April 2012 00:29:00.

I'm interested to know about a gallery called Hethersett Galleries on Philanthropic Rd. Was it based in this house? I bought a pencil illustration in a charity shop which has the gallery's sticker on the back. The frame looks 1970s ish style. In particular does anyone know of a link to E H Shepard as the drawong is of one of his Winnie the Pooh illustrations but probably a copy by someone else ( no visible signature). Fascinating to read about the house, though I've. no local connection.

Comment 3

rue from London posted this comment on Monday 14 January 2013 16:49:00.

This looks very Gothic, almost worthy of Horace Walpole.

As a matter of interest, can anyone tell me what was on the land in Gatton Park road, where the modern Parkside Court now is?

It must have been a substantial house, or hospital perhaps.


Comment 4

David Harrington from Reigate posted this comment on Thursday 13 June 2013 10:58:00.

I would love to see any other photographs of Hethersett House. My late father was associated to the RNIB for some years.


Comment 5

David Rogers from Kemsing, Kent posted this comment on Monday 02 November 2015 19:16:00.

I went there with my school in 1975 to play cricket. The blind school had a team that played using a large ball filled with lead shot so that they could hear where the ball was. I have very fond memories of a lovely summer's evening. My form master at Purley Boys also worked at Hetherset.


Comment 6

Peter Steward from Hethersett posted this comment on Monday 11 April 2016 21:52:00.

I run a web site and electronic magazine for Hethersett which is a village about six miles from Norwich on the London Road and just off the main A11. I have been told that the original owner came from Hethersett in Norfolk. I come from Hethersett and ironically my niece lives in Reigate but has never mentioned Hethersett House


Comment 7

Anne McLaughlin from Limpsfield Surrey posted this comment on Monday 17 October 2016 13:45:00.

I have been researching my family tree and found that my great great uncle was Head Gardener and lived at Hethersett Lodge, Wray Lane in 1901. I wonder if he worked for the Auerbach family at Hethersett. He later had a nursery and florist shop in Wray Lane which his son took over. If anyone can confirm this or has any photos I would love to hear from you. Anne


Comment 8

Patricia Auerbach from London posted this comment on Monday 17 October 2016 15:42:00.

Yes your great great uncle worked for my great uncle Julius Auerbach. He owned Hethersett from 1890 - 1924. He died in September, 1924 age 64 years. His wife continued to live there for a few years before selling it on. She passed away in 1955.

Regards Patricia Aubrey


Comment 9

Michael Orrow from Rochdale posted this comment on Tuesday 13 December 2016 11:37:00.

was a pupil at Heathersett in 1975. I also remember the cricket match on the common that David Rogers is referring to. Funny the things we remember. I remember it as I played Silly Mid Off and managed to take and hold on to a well struck ball. Took the wind out of me.


Comment 10

kathy atherton from dorking posted this comment on Wednesday 22 February 2017 18:02:00.

I am researching the history of the campaign for the vote in the dorking/reigate area. Mrs Auerback (helena, Julius's wife) was very active in the non-militant campaign and hosted many events at Heathersett. are there any photos of her surviving?


Comment 11

Patricia Aubrey from Acton,London, W3 7BH posted this comment on Saturday 25 February 2017 00:11:00.

Dear Kathy,

Thank-you for your interest in my family. Yes, I have one photo of my great aunt Helena Auerbach. I don't have it scanned at the moment. She was on various committees - I believe she was the Treasurer on most of them - of the Suffragette movement during the 1920's. There is quite a lot of information about her on the internet if you just google her name - and more photos of her. Please contact me anytime, should you want further info. You can email me or call me on my mobile - 07716311400 . Kind Regards - Patricia Aubrey (Auerbach).



Comment 12

Anthony Twyman from Clacton posted this comment on Tuesday 11 April 2017 13:26:00.

My parents were friends with Hellen and Jasper Otley who lived in the gatehouse in the mid-50's. I remember seeing the main house in a sorry state having been damaged during WWII with the upper floors and the contents of the rooms (beds/wardrobes etc) in clear view. I was about 8 years old at the time.


Comment 13

Anthony Twyman from Clacton posted this comment on Monday 17 April 2017 10:08:00.

Comment number 12. My apologies to Hetherset, I was confusing it with Quarry HiLL house and Lodge.


Comment 14

Beryl Sheppard from Benfleet, Essex posted this comment on Monday 26 March 2018 16:31:30.

I've just come across this post and found it fascinating to read the history of the building I worked at when it was known as RNIB Hethersett Centre for Blind Adolescents. I was Beryl Starmer in those days and worked there as Office Secretary to the Principal from 1977 to 1984. Mr Cunliffe was the Principal and he and his staff did some fantastic work helping many visually impaired youngsters (all school leaving age) to progress into suitable gainful employment. I would love to hear from any of them if they too should stumble upon this page - oh the wonders of modern technology!!


Comment 15

Robert Pembroke from Dagenham posted this comment on Monday 02 April 2018 15:12:23.

I was a student at Heathersett in 1971. Mr Cunliffe was principal and mr Kettle was deputy. I had never been away from my home until I went to Heathersett and I found it difficult at times. I had very good sight at that time except when it was dark, I lost all my sight by the time I reached my mid thirties, I was 16 years old in 1971. I too played cricket and was pretty good out in the field, but I was a bit of a slog em and run type of batsman. I learnt much about engineering with Mr Hockley and my first real job was working in a local factory, so Heathersett gave me a good start to my working life. I often wonder what happened to all those folk I met during that year. Cheers Bob.


Comment 16

John jacob from Huddersfield posted this comment on Sunday 19 August 2018 21:48:55.

I was one of the 2 cooks at Hethersett from about 1969 for a couple of years. Mrs Semen was the head cook, and Mrs Keens was the head housekeeper. I met Miss Liz Moulder, an American teacher there and we married for a couple of years. I travelled around for some years then I went i7nto Further Education and finally retired as a FE College Assistant Principal. I only have good memories of Hethersett.

lorie heshka from nanaimo, bc, canada posted this comment on Sunday 31 March 2019 16:33:24.

Hello, my grandfather, John Jack Harris, was a gardener at The Gardens Hethersett, Reigate according to the 1911 Census of England. William Morgan Blackwood signed the census form. I have been told that when he came to Canada he had inhand various Letters of Reference to help him with employment in Canada. If you can tell me anything more about John Jack Harris I would really appreciate that.

Comment 1

Tony Farnes from Portsmouth posted this comment on Monday 19 November 2012 20:34:00.

I lived at Hope Cottage, about half a mile down the road to the village (Three Horse Shoes pub). I went to the this school from about 1948 to 1952. My father worked on the farm for Mr Tom Prichard with Pop Harding and his family of 10.


Comment 2

Patricia Earle from sidlow posted this comment on Friday 27 December 2013 11:32:00.

We live next door to the school. The school no longer has the chimneys and some land was sold to the school to extend the playing area. I have found by coincidence my husband's family (the Earles)

lived and worked on Sidlow Farm. Would love to hear if anyone has any

stories about the Ironsbottom area.

The Warwick Arms. Originally "The Spotted Cow". Pulled down to make way for the M25.

Comment 1

Peter Lucas from South Nutfield posted this comment on Tuesday 20 September 2011 10:53:00.

Hello

I was talking to a friend who has lived in the area since the 50s, and he mentioned that he used to frequent a lovely pub run by an old army officer (WW1) and his wife (British Intelligence, spoke 9 laguages etc). He described the location and I realised that I drive down Warwick Wold Road every day and wouldn't have dreamed that a pub once stood on the left as you cross the M25.

Are there any other photos / recollections of this pub?

Regards

Peter


Comment 2

Stephen Barnes from Newton Abbot posted this comment on Monday 13 February 2012 18:51:00.

I remember this pub as late as the early 70s when I went there with a friend who now lives in Lingfield.Also the devastation to the area when the M25 was built - I was a teenage objector!

Comment 3

Ken Ball from Merstham posted this comment on Saturday 19 January 2013 16:51:00.

My mates and I used to walk to this pub for our illicit drinking sessions aged 16/17. Lovely people. We used to play darts quite often but invariably hit the metal light shade that surronded the light illuminating the dartboard.


Comment 4

Nicola Burrows from reigate posted this comment on Sunday 10 February 2013 16:40:00.

I bought a framed photo of The Spotted Cow pub at a boot sale. The boy in the pic (looks about 13) is apparently James Meadows. There is a man of about 60 with him. Another sign on the building is "Mellersh&Neale Ltd, Reigate Ales, Stout and Porter"


Comment 5

Joseph Starbuck from Ayrshire posted this comment on Sunday 31 March 2013 17:28:00.

Parents often visited, taking myself, siblings and odd friends along in the late 50's/early 60's. We kids used to delight in feeding the ponies kept in a field beside the pub whose names were something like Penny and Tuppence.


Comment 6

Dorothy Ovenden from East Grinstead posted this comment on Tuesday 10 September 2013 13:07:00.

My great-great grandparents, William and Eliza Packham, kept this pub during the last decades of the 19th Century.


Comment 7

Gordon Coombs from Guildford, Surrey posted this comment on Friday 14 February 2014 06:26:00.

I am afraid that I was one of the early staff on site just before the M25 started. I worked for the site laboratory which was temporarily set up in the nearby wooden army billets, that housed the Tristan Da Cunha evacuees in the 60's.We then moved to site offices in Rockshaw Road. Loved the area, steeped in history. Used to go for walks up the winding hill to the above pub that was sadly boarded up. Unfortunately I have no photo's.I was around 26 then and now I am back working on the M25 Clackets improvement scheme at the ripe age of 68. Just returned from night shift.What went wrong with my youthful ambitions.


Comment 8

Piers Evans from Caterham posted this comment on Thursday 28 August 2014 14:42:00.

I was born in Hilltop Lane, Chaldon, and my parents were "regulars" in "The Cow", as it was always referred to, from when they moved to Chaldon just after WW2. I followed on, keenly, as a teenager and was present on the last day, 28/02/72. The pub was drunk dry! The M25 contract started 2 days later, after the "leap day" and the first thing that went wrong was an electricity cable was ripped up cutting off the supply!

Molly Ford was the last licencee, ably assisted by her husband John. Molly took over from her mother, Kathleen Reilly. The old lady had a "wonky" eye and she could sit in her corner and you never knew if she was watching you or somebody else!

Chaldon Cricket Club members were ardent "supporters" and many an evening was spent playing darts, not always as well as we intended, whilst drinking the indifferent Ind Coope and Friary Meux ales.

Nostalgia isn't what it used to be!

My husband's Great Grandfather, Joshua Marchant, was listed as Licensed Victualler, Spotted Cow, Bletchingley on the 1881 Census. His (second) wife was Sarah and they had five children. Would be interested if anyone has any more information on this family! Many thanks..

I used to live about a half a mile from here. The landlords daughter was my best friend at school. The landlord and landlady at that time were the Fords. I spent a lot of time here (obviously not as a patron) the year was 1969. We moved on due to the construction of the M25


Comment 11

Julia Richens from Reigate posted this comment on Thursday 21 March 2019 15:59:38.

Our family was the last at The Warwick Arms. I am the eldest daughter of John & Molly Ford. It is nice to see nice comments about the pub and my parents and grandmother. I can remember collecting horse dung from the orchard and selling it to the customers, also we would pick blackberries and sell them too. My parents are no longer with us. One of my old school friend had sent me some photos of the old pub she had found on line so I thought I would try to find some and found this.

Hi, just wondered if there is historical information about this company. I am looking for their 1950's crematorium reoords and wondered if there are relatives connected to company that may still retain this.

Thanks.

Hi There,

I'm pretty sure that all cremations in the 50s were performed by Surrey and Sussex Crematorium; they are on the Balcome Road just south of Horley. Hope this helps.

Woodhatch House, Reigate. Circa 1910.

I assume that this was the house of the Haywoods in the period 1870-1910. Mr Haywood was a timber merchant and a well-respected amateur rose-grower. His daughter, Margaret (1880-1965), married Alfred Fripp in 1898, won a medal for service in the Boer War, and became Lady Fripp when he was knighted by Edward VII in 1904.

Was there an earlier Woodhatch House? This looks late Victorian. Apparently this had been the address of GW Alexander, a London banker and bill-broker who had been the Treasurer of the British and Foreign Anti-slavery Society from 1840.

Can anyone clarify if the house portrayed in the 1910 photo here was the home of the Haywoods in 1870-1910, or of George William Alexander (b.1802; d.1890), the London banker and Treasurer of the Anti-Slavery Society? My information is that GWA lived at Woodhatch from 1883 (when he retired) until his death on 24 November 1890.

I lived at 'The Cottage' Crescent Rd until the 1970's. The cottage was semi-detached and we understood they were built as estate cottages for Woodhatch House (which I remember as a small boy). Ours was meant to be the gardeners cottage. I can find some old photos if anyone is interested.

My late mother, Doris Penfold, and her four sisters attended Ivy Bank School in the early years of the 1900s.They lived in Blackborough Road, Reigate,where their father was a Stonemason until 1914,when he moved to the Armoury in Chart Lane as Sgt Major.

It is amazing to see this photo of Ivy Bank School 50 years before I attended there, later known as North Bank Preparatory School,which ceased in about 1961, as Miss M Rayner, the Principal, retired. I have very happy memories of my time at that school and still remember the names of many of my fellow pupils.

I love this photo of Ivy Bank School. Later the name was changed to North Bank Preparatory School and I attended there from 1952 until 1958. I have very happy memories of my time there and remember the names of many of my fellow pupils. I still have one "writing" book from the third year. I lived in Smoke Lane.

My late mother, Wendy Titshall, went to North Bank school - does anyone remember her?

If this is Ivy Bank on Blackborough Road, then it was in 1875 the home of one of my ancestors, James Duthoit. Wonderful to see this.
