the place to be
Tuesday July 7th 2020

The charming village of Bletchingley, which is of medieval origin is well worth discovering.  It is located on the A25 between Redhill and Godstone and only six minutes from junction 6 of the M25.  2 main line train stations are located within 6 miles of the village with direct access through to London and other destinations.  Its historic centre contains many attractive listed buildings.  Part of the village is located within the green belt.  The wide High Street originates from the market square that once used to exist there. 

Bletchingley is well known for its specialist antique shops. Its 5 pubs are all within walking distance of each other and offer a wide selection of menus and atmospheres. Other shops include a post office and newsagent, 2 local convenience shops; coffee shop; hairdressers and an Indian restaurant. The area is served by a very good local school and private school, a well serviced village hall and community centre.

St Mary's Church originates from over 900 years ago, with the tower, early Norman, probably being the oldest part of the building, about 1090.  At one time there was a spire which was destroyed in 1606 by lightning.

The Bowls Club, Football Club and Rifle Range Club all make use of the facilities at Grange Meadow. The newly refurbished skate park at Grange Meadow was built by the youth of the village and BAGaged and the latest addition to Grange Meadow facilities has been the new children's Playground which opened in November 2010. Bletchingley Players rehearse in the small building adjacent to Grange Meadow.

Hevers Pond, located at the back of the field adjacent to Grange Meadow is mentioned in the Doomsday Book.  It is spring fed and never been known to dry out (oral history recorded from 1850) when 80% of other Surrey ponds have dried out in drought conditions; and is home to many creatures including waterstick insects, scorpions, caddis flies, water snails, rare amphibians - frogs, toads and 3 species of newts including the Great Crested Newt.

The village also boasts a well maintained golf club and golf course.

The North Downs and Greensand Way are all within easy walking distance of the Village.  From almost anywhere in the Village you are only 5 minutes walk from some lovely walks in the countryside.
