Chertsey is situated south-west of London and is a popular residential location. The town grew around Chertsey Abbey, which was founded in 666 AD and was awarded a market charter by Henry I. The Abbey became one of the largest Benedictine abbeys in England until it was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1536; later stone from the Abbey was used to build nearby Oatlands Palace. More stone from the Abbey was used to build the streets of Chertsey and by the late 17th century, only a few outer walls of the Abbey remained.
The 18th century Chertsey Bridge across the River Thames was originally built in the early 15th century and the River Bourne runs through the town, which connects with the Thames at Weybridge. Chertsey Lock is just a short distance from the bridge and on the south-west corner of the bridge is a bronze statue of local heroine, Blanche Heriot, striking the bell. The river in Chertsey has long held a Regatta and Olympic rowing has taken place above Chertsey Lock.
St Ann’s Hill in Chertsey was a vital viewing point for the Anglo-French Survey, which measured the distance between the Royal Greenwich Observatory and the Paris Observatory using trigonometry. The hill was crucial for the link with the baseline of the English side of the survey on Hounslow Heath.
