House clearance in Abinger
Few little facts about Abinger
Abinger is a civil parish in the Mole Valley district of Surrey, England. It includes the villages of Abinger Hammer, Sutton Abinger, Abinger Common and part of Holmbury St Mary (the rest of which is in Shere parish). Abinger Hammer was once a very important centre of the wealden iron industry and this is commemorated by its most notable landmark, the clock which overhangs the main road. This portrays the figure of "Jack the Blacksmith", who strikes the hour with his hammer. The clock bears the motto "By me you know how fast to go". The clock was given in memory of the first Lord Farrer of Abinger Hall who died in 1899. The clock represents the iron industry and the role played by the county of Surrey in the industrial past.
Sutton Abinger has been inhabited for a long time with a mesolithic burial site on the south east of the village. There is also evidence of strip farming.
A significant local building is Fulvens House which also lies to the north of the village which may date back to 1628.
Abinger Common was inhabited in the stone-age, and is supposed to be the oldest village in England. The church dates back to Norman times and is the second oldest Parish church in Surrey.
Abinger appears in the Domesday Book as Abinceborne. It was held by William de Braiose.
