Chipstead Village

New village sign


Last week a new village road sign was installed on Elmore Road just after the top of Star Lane. This was conceived, arranged and financed by Cherish Chipstead in memory of Peter Morley who contributed so much to Chipstead life before his unfortunate death in 2017. The sign has two historical references. The year 675 – the first written record of Chipstead when about 500 acres of land were given to the newly established Benedictine Abbey at Chertsey and the crossed sword and keys motif that was part of Chertsey Abbey’s coat of arms
