Few little facts about Purley
Purley is situated in the London Borough of Croydon. The name derives from "pirlea", which means 'Peartree lea'.
Kenley Aerodrome, to the east of the town, is currently official property of the Ministry of Defence, was once one of the most important fighter stations – together with Croydon Airport and Biggin Hill – during World War II. Currently it is used within granted permission as a gliding ground and is a popular area for learner drivers to practise at.
On television the town became known in the sitcom, Terry and June where Terry and June Medford (Terry Scott and June Whitfield), had moved after the characters' previous series, Happy Ever After. The sitcom was set on the cusp of Purley and Wallington (on Church Road in a house within sight of St Mark's Church) and the opening credits featured them searching for one another around the (now unrecognisable) Whitgift Centre – a shopping precinct in central Croydon.
