The history of Chertsey
Pre-dating the town itself, Chertsey Abbey was founded in the seventh century. The Benedictine abbey is dedicated to St Peter. Another ancient structure in the town is Chertsey Bridge, which crosses the River Thames. The current bridge was built in the 18th century to replace the 14th century original.
St. Ann's Hill is a protected monument, as well as a popular picnic area and nature trail. Local rumour has it that the hill is haunted.
The Chertsey Museum is the home of Runnymede's local history, along with many artefacts. It's free to enter and to view photographs, clocks and fine art from the area.
Staying in Chertsey is also convenient if you're planning a visit to Thorpe Park. Rest up before challenging rollercoasters, as well as some of the park's other white-knuckle rides. Chertsey rail station is one of the closest stops to Thorpe Park, with two direct bus connections.
Another attraction in the area for thrill-seekers is John Battleday Water Ski, also known as JB Ski. They offer wakeboarding and other watersports, and also run summer camps for kids.
A short drive away in Lyne, you'll find the Great Cockrow miniature steam railway. It opens on Sundays from May to October, with extra Wednesday openings in August.
Arts and culture
Chertsey is said to be where Charles Dickens came to make notes while writing Oliver Twist. The town's bridge is mentioned in the book, alongside the now-demolished Gogmore House.
In the film One Chance, Chertsey was used in filming as the replacement for Port Talbot. The former European Arts building's lobby is a backdrop in Inception. Driving stunts for other movies have also taken place at the QinetiQ track at nearby Longcross.
During 2014, the ‘Chertsey Sausage' became a minor celebrity. It was the nickname given to the town's flood barrier, which soon took off on social media. Shepperton Butchers did eventually create a new sausage in response, and 120 butchers around the UK use the recipe.
