About this photo

Caterham is in two parts, up the hill where the medieval church is, and Caterham Valley to the east on the valley floor, which grew up when the railway arrived in 1856 - it was in fact a terminus station. Thus the lower town is Victorian in character, with later suburbs, and its church, St John's, dates from the 1880s. Until the eastern by-pass was built the main A22 poured through the centre, and this roundabout was extremely busy. Here we look south along Godstone Road, with the church tower on the right.
