Maintaining A Record
In 1979 the original "History of Chipstead" by the late Charles Pringle, an eminent local historian, was published. As a Millennium project the CVPS published a second edition, which included Memories of the 20th Century by Francis O'Donnell, a local resident. This is a fascinating insight into the history and life of our village from when it was first recorded in the Domesday Book until the present day. Copies of this interesting book can be purchased from the Corner Shop in Station Approach, Chipstead Valley Road or any committee member. They are also available free to all new CVPS members. Much information has been passed to the Bourne Society and to the Surrey Historical Library in Woking for safekeeping.
