Ashtead Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Surrey...








Although it feels more like a modern commuter centre, Ashtead dates back to prehistory and was once a significant Roman settlement. Its 12th century church of St Giles was built on a former Roman site. The remains of a Roman villa have been unearthed nearby. The village was mentioned in the 11th century Domesday Book and the famous diarist Samuel Pepys worshipped at St Giles in the 17th century. Ashtead Common is an important nature reserve.
