House Clearance in Holmwood North
Few little facts about Holmwood North
The village has a main street called Spook Hill, in which there is a newsagent's shop. There are three other main built up roads: Bentsbrook Road, Bentsbrook Park (no through roads) andHolmesdale Road leading to Inholms Lane, completing a circuit, making the village larger than it first appears. The residential area of Stonebridge in the east is linked by residential roads to Spook Hill, as is Chart Downs across Bent's Brook. There is a village hall, a clinic called Holmwood Surgery and a local sports and social club. There is a pond on the common alongside Spook Hill.
The Deepdene north of Chart Downs includes Chart House, built by wealthy banker, connoisseur and collector Thomas Hope, extended to include Chart Park, an immensemausoleum with commanding views to his son and the house itself came to inspire Osborne House. The grade II* grounds have been converted, since 1897, into Dorking Golf Club. This long-established course and now wider venue is closer to Chart Downs and Stonebridge neighbourhoods than Dorking and is a source of local employment.
The main estate in North Holmwood occupies the former site of Dorking Brickworks, which was a major local employer from the 1930s until its closure in 1983. The brickworks used up the clay surrounding it, ran out of space in the 1950s and extended south of Inholms lane in 1961. The clay supply was exhausted and the brickworks closed in 1983. After demolition, the brickworks land north of Inholms lane was used to build residential housing, while the smaller excavation south of Inholms lane was designated a nature reserve, now the Inholms clay pit LNR, open to all and accessed by a tunnel under Inholms lane.
