Chipstead Meads

In 1964 two fields known as Gatefield and Hartfield were given to the Banstead Urban District Council by the Stoddart family of Longshaw and the Wates family of Elmore for use as public open space and playing fields. This delightful open space in the centre of the village became Chipstead Meads. Part of the Meads is used by the Chipstead Rugby Football Club in winter months.
