Fetcham lies just west of Leatherhead in Surrey in the South of England. The village on the River Mole with its beautiful countryside and Mill Pond springs conjures up pictures of “Wind in the Willows”, a timeless children’s classic by Kenneth Grahame.
The countryside surrounding the village is so picturesque, one wouldn’t be surprised to come across such wonderful characters as Mole or Ratty messing around in boats on the river or having a picnic by the Mill Pond. In the country lanes around the village one can probably find more than one human equivalent of Mr Toad racing his car on a tranquil Sunday morning!
Already mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086, the village has long been in occupation, probably since the Stone Age, as evidenced by various archaeological finds.
One of the most important surviving buildings in Fetcham is St Mary’s Church, which has served Christian worshippers for more than 1,000 years and was constructed during Anglo-Saxon and early Norman invader times. The other attractions are the red-brick 18th century manor house Fetcham Park House, with its elaborate front elevation and landscaped gardens, and the Grade II listed Le Pelerine and Thorncroft Manor.
Well House, Ballands Hall and The Dower House also attract their fair share of tourists, who often stumble across Fetcham on their way to the neighbouring villages of Great Bookham and Little Bookham, where at times various famous artists had their home.
The surrounding countryside is popular with hikers and horse-riders and there are some great trails and bridleways to be found in the Fetcham Downs. When your child starts riding lessons, you naturally assume their instructors will ensure your children are safe at all times and will be properly equipped with a safety riding helmet. It is in the nature of horses to be nervous and take flight and for this reason, beginners are typically given the most docile horses imaginable. However, riding accidents still happen once in a while and although most of them can be put down to misadventure, occasionally a riding school must shoulder the blame.
If you or your child had a riding accident and the instructor or riding school was to blame, speak to an accident solicitor in Fetcham about your case.
