East Horsley appears in Domesday Book of 1086 , Its assets were: 3 hides and 1½ virgates; 8½ ploughs, woodland worth 50 hogs. It rendered £5 per year to its overlords.The village is the site of Horsley Park, a gothic mansion bought by. William Currie, a distiller and banker in 1784 (you’d have loved him Windy!)
It is similarly well heeled these day as we drive down Pennymead Drive past the multi- million pound mansions, into this rich heart of the stockbroker belt. Horsley is an excellent tennis club too, and the annual championships were being played. The car parks were busting and and there were a large crowd of well heeled Horsleyians assembled, including some lovely ladies catching the eye of single peckers.
