Few little facts about Bletchingley
Bletchingley (or Blechingley) is a village in Surrey.The settlement appears in the Domesday Book as Blachingelei. It was held by Richard de Tonebrige.
In 1225 there is mention of Bletchingley as a borough. In the Middle Ages a borough was created either by the King or one of the Lords as a potentially profitable element in the development of their estates.
It appears that after the 14th century Bletchingley began to lose its importance as a borough, perhaps losing out to the market town of Reigate. At one point it was a rotten borough! Parliamentary elections were held in what is now the White Hart.
The house at Place Farm formed the gatehouse of Blechingley Place: a great Tudor house, which Anne of Cleves occupied after her marriage to Henry VIII was annulled.
Bletchingley today still manages to keep in touch with its medieval roots and strives to maintain the character of the village. The central part of the village is a conservation area and is set in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty.
