House Clearance in Runfold
Few little facts about Runfold
Runfold is a village in Surrey.Runfold, along with a number of other villages in the Surrey and Sussex Weald (such as Alfold, Dunsfold, Durfold and Chiddingfold) comprise the "Fold Villages", the suffix probably relating to the clearance of forest and staking out of resultant pasture as grazing land for sheep or cattle in Saxon times.
The village has been seriously affected by mineral extraction, subsequent infilling of the resultant sand and gravel pits, and the heavy vehicle movements associated with that industry.
Runfold Manor is a large house in the east of the village, at the foot of the Hog's Back. Much of the contents were auctioned in 2005 when the owners decided to move away.
Mike Hawthorn, Britain's first Formula One motor racing World Champion was educated in Barfield School.
