Surrey Heath (in Surrey of course) is a local government district with its administrative centre in Camberley. The area of Surrey Heath has been occupied since prehistoric times and Bronze Age artefacts have been found there too. The Romans were also in the district, and later, the Saxons. Windsor Forest, a royal hunting ground occupied much of Surrey Heath during the Middle Ages. Chobham was the only village in the area mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The area was a favourite of highwaymen in the 17th and 18th century, the most notorious arguably being Claude Duval and one who was known as “the Golden Farmer.” In those days carriages may have met with accidents such as trees on the road blocking their paths, put there by highwaymen, so there have been road vehicle accidents in Surrey Heath for centuries.
