Villiers Path – Lucy Furlong

2017_02_VilliersPath_Chapbook_04_paginated.inddTake a walk down this historic narrow foot passage in Surbiton. Will you meet the ghost of the beautiful young Lord Francis Villiers, killed in battle here in 1648.

Villiers Path runs between Hollyfield School and the back gardens of the houses in Cranes Park, coming out half way down Surbiton High Road. It is where Lord Francis Villiers died in a skirmish on Surbiton Common on 7th July 1648, in the latter part of the English Civil War,

Over hundreds of years, as Surbiton has changed and grown, the path has narrowed and become hemmed in. Where was the famous tree, engraved with a ‘V’, which marked the spot where the young and beautiful lord bravely defended himself until death?

Poetry and photography from Lucy Furlong.

Glovewatch: The Lost Gloves of Seething – Robin Hutchinson

Glovewatch_2016In December 2014 a single glove started a passion. Robin Hutchinson just wondered how many single gloves there might be lost in the Surbiton area. To discover an answer he asked people via Facebook to look for and record any sightings. Over a period of five months 819 were spotted. In November 2015 Robin decided to repeat the experiment but introduced a ‘glove spotting’ season running from the 1st of December to the 31st January.

The result from the Glovewatch 2015/16 Season is a remarkable 692 Lost Gloves of Seething.
If you want to join in the 2016/17 season then ‘like’ the Glovewatch – The Lost Gloves of Seething page on Facebook.

Note to readers – Seething is a ‘state’ dedicated to using creativity to bring people together. It is open to everyone to join in whenever and wherever they like. We believe that by creating things and bringing people together through that activity we can release talents and energies in our varied communities.
