You may have noticed a new addition to the Limpsfield Village Conservation Area opposite St Peter’s Church. This small but not insignificant replica milestone – Croydon 10 – marks a key part in Limpsfield’s unique history and a significant time in its development during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

THE OXTED HEALTH CENTRE is a very large health centre, located in Limpsfield Parish (Gresham Road) that services Limpsfield, Oxted and the surrounding areas. Having existed on the site at 10 Gresham Road for generations, many people in Oxted and Limpsfield have used this health centre their whole life.
All health centres have been through a lot of change over the last few years and Oxted Health Centre is currently undergoing its own changes to develop and grow with the demands of our ever-growing community.
There will be some more updates from them soon, but in the meantime, courtesy of the Oxted Health Centre team, here are some things you should know, that may help you navigate your own healthcare journey with them…
There has been a lot of chatter over the last week or so about the activity going on in the land by Wolf’s Row – a site that was previously home to the Plumbers Arms allotments, which were moved to their new site near the Community Orchard by Grub Street in 2007, or thereabouts.
This area is designated Green Belt and is privately owned by the Innes family (Titsey) and we are told by the Titsey Estate managers, Strutt & Parker, that it is not being cleared for any specific development.
Flo Wolfe, Senior Associate Director at Strutt & Parker: “[It] isn’t being cleared for specific development, [the work] is just removing the old allotment paraphernalia and clearing the grass and hedges, which are getting overgrown.”
It may look a little bare and decimated right now, but with spring growth, we’re sure it will green up and look much better.
There may even be some vestiges of the old allotments coming through, so we might even see some veggies, shrubs or flowers popping up!
If you are vulnerable, lonely or finding the cost of living crisis has really hit home this Winter, there are various organisations in Oxted and Limpsfield you can contact, and places to go for both financial and practical help, warmth and company…
Local community and voluntary organisations can now apply for grants of up to £2,000 from the Tandridge Together Community Fund.
Limpsfield Parish Council held the official launch of the Limpsfield Way circular walk and Limpsfield Community Cycle Route on Saturday afternoon (24 September), with Cllr Ann Osborn hosting the event and Chairman John Thompson cutting the ribbon.
It is with the greatest sadness that Limpsfield Parish Council heard of the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II. Our thoughts and prayers are with King Charles III and The Royal Family at this time.
On Thursday 7th July, Limpsfield was judged for the annual Britain in Bloom competition by Paul Dalby from RHS South and South East in Bloom.
There were originally five pubs in Limpsfield but only one now remains. That is The Bull Inn halfway down the high street on the east side. The Bull was built in the 17th century with 19th century additions. It is timber framed and tile hung. Until the 18th Century, it was called “The Chequers”.
We are very much looking forward to Sunday’s Platinum Jubilee Street Party in Limpsfield Village, which has been organised by the Street Party Committee, headed up by Richard Spiller in conjunction with Limpsfield Parish Council.
The event runs from 12pm to 4pm and must be cleared by 5pm when the road will re-open to traffic.
Please feel free to come along with your own tables and chairs, although there will be 60 tables and chairs provided by the committee.
The event is BYO and there will not be any food or drink stands on site. However, Coffee at Kiwi House will be open and selling coffees, teas, cakes and picnic essentials. You can also pre-order through them in advance.
The Bull Inn will also be open and is hosting a BBQ (although we believe it is already fully booked). The Bull’s toilets are available for use during the street party.
Memorial Stores will be open until 12pm for any last minute supplies required.
Please note: Limpsfield High Street will be CLOSED TO ALL TRAFFIC except emergency services from 10am to 5pm between the A25 and Detillens Lane roundabout. For Bus information, please see https://www.southdown.net or their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Southdownbuses/.
Thanks and have a great day!
