"Chobham Common is the legendary source of the Chobham Treacle Mine. The treacle in question was to be used by a garrison of troops stationed there before they shipped out to the Crimea, but the treacle was left in a small subterranean cave where it could cool and hopefully not ferment. In 1901, they began to burst and it began to run down the hillside."

Watching the narrow boats sail along Basingstoke Canal is a real treat and gives Woking its countryside appeal.

What locals say about KT16

  1. Great walks on your doorstep. Good food and pubs within a few miles. A quiet area. Excellent links to get into London.

  2. Close to London, with plenty to do within a short drive, it is good for work and great for families. There are abundant parks and libraries to occupy children and everything is within a short drive.

  3. We chose to move to Chertsey because it's a lovely little gem, we arrived in June 2013 from Uxbridge, London, after exploring all the Thames Valley area from Reading to New Malden, London. Initially we selected Weybridge/Walton on Thames, because they are very green, posh, with a beautiful promenade along the River Thames, nice restaurants, nice shops, but when we discovered that just down the corner there was Chertsey and we realised that here you get much more for your money and properties have more character since it's a old historical town we started to look properties in this area. Here you can find lots of period properties with a decent size garden for a reasonable price. Schools/nurseries are very good, some even outstanding, therefore there is no need for a private school which means saving money. People are very family orientated and friendly and there is a good community spirit, basically everyone knows each other somehow. There are loads of parks, playgrounds and green areas if you have a child and a dog. In the high street there are a couple of nice Italian cafe/deli, a Portuguese one and some English ones, and there is a lovely gym with sauna and swimming pool, the area is very safe with very low criminality. We are very happy here and we are settling down nicely, my son has already made some good friends. I feel that the only downside of Chertsey is the high-street, it's quite nice with some period buildings, however there isn't much a part 4-5 cafes, some charity shops, some hair dressers, nails shops, a dentist, some electrical shops and some banks. I reckon that some nicer shops would definitely attract more people and improve the area. Another downside is the train connection to Waterloo, if you want to get a fast train to London you need to change in Weybridge or Virginia Water as Chertsey to Waterloo takes ages, more than 1 hour. I guess this is the reason why prices are lower than Weybridge/Walton on Thames, if the train connection would be better this place would become very expensive. For us this is not a massive problem, Chertsey is near loads of places like Staines, Woking, Windsor, Kingston , Richmond, if you have a car you can reach those places in less than 20 minutes, obviously if you leave home before 8AM since the traffic become hectic after that time. If you property budget is below 450-500k and you are looking for a character property with big garden, good schools in a safe area and you work in the west end of London or in the Thames valley I definitely recommend Chertsey as a place to grow your family.

  4. Hidden gem. Essentially you are living in Virginia Water - but at half the price - because it’s the only way to describe the location to someone not familiar with the area. Your local shops and restaurants (which are very good) and the station are in Virginia Water so its essentially a quiet offshoot of that place but with property values well below Virginia Water prices. Lots of hidden Manor Houses (sometimes divided into apartments) and typically Surrey private roads. Ideal for building "manor" style houses as the land is cheap compared to VW. Horses, serious Tour De France cyclists, classic cars and gravel drives - very nice place to live.
