Claygate Removals

We undertake home and office removals in and around Claygate and smaller moves, if required with our Man & Van service.

Claygate takes its name from the clay pits that used to be in the village, providing bricks for a large surrounding area including most of Hampton Court Palace three miles away. The area lies at the start of the broad belt of clay deposits around London and the village was, literally, the “gate-way” to the “clay”.

For many centuries Claygate was a largely agricultural area, and part of the parish of Thames Ditton. Significant commercial development began in the late nineteenth century with the coming of the railway, when in 1885 a branch between Guildford and London passed through Claygate, ensuring its rapid growth over the following years.

Claygate is regarded by its residents as a village, and has its own parish council. Apart from a street overlap to Esher, Claygate is surrounded by woodlands and open countryside, including Claygate Common, Princes Covert, Winney Hill, Surbiton Golf Course, Telegraph Hill, Littleworth Common and Arbrook Common. Much of the intervening farmland is used for grazing ponies

Commuters into London Waterloo will find that most services take about 30-minutes; services to Guildford take about the same time. The address of the station is Station Approach, The Parade, Claygate, KT10 0PB
