Old Maps of Wisley

Historic Maps of Wisley and the local area.

When my Mother died in 2000 we found a letter saying my mother nee Mary Kingston and her friend stayed at the hotel . The lake had frozen and they went skating on it at Christmas time . She would have been about 12 at the time making the date 1932 . Unsure if that would be correct but the letter was interesting to us as she was sent to school in the area but was brought up in South Wales .

In the 1960's I lived in Papercourt lane Ripley, when The Lake froze over and a bunch of us enjoyed an exhilerating few hours skating freely. Wouldn't be allowed today. I've just written a poem about skating and have included this unique,unforgetable experience.
