Our resident history buff, Cllr Ashley Fosdike has been clearing out the Parish Office (the original office located at The Pound on Wolfs Row) and sorting / reviving all the historical documents, so we can get them properly archived and safe for future generations.

She’s found some amazing treasures, some going back to the 1700s, including deeds, maps, poor relief payments, agenda and minutes.

Amongst these items she also uncovered a folder of non-Parish Council related letters and documents belonging to a certain WH Wood (Walter Wood), who was apparently a local estate agent (based on Limpsfield High Street) and former Clerk to the Limpsfield Parish Council for an astounding 39 years until the end of the 1950s. He died in 1963 and was married to an E Wood and we believe lived in Ellice Road, Oxted.

Does anyone know WH Wood’s family? We’d love to be able to return the folder to them if they are interested in the contents (if not, we can archive).

Please get in touch. clerk@limpsfield.org. 07514 011355
