Ripley Village and neighbouring Send Marsh and Send, all lie within the Metropolitan Green Belt, nestled approx. equidistant between Cobham, West Byfleet, Woking and Guildford. With origins noted all the way back to the Domesday Survey in 1086. Ripley became very much a staging post en route from London to Portsmouth, evident by the wonderfully eclectic mix of pubs, inns hotels and restaurants. With links to the A3 and a mile or so from the Village, means that for residents, a hop onto the M25 motorway is only a few minutes drive away and Trafalgar Square is 25 miles distant.
Throughout the 20th Century, significant housing additions created the shape of Send and Send Marsh as we know them today with the local State school of Ripley First School and the Private school of Ripley Court being some of the most popular of local choices. The churches of St Mary Magdalen and the Roman Catholic Church of St William of York in Send are both close at hand.
Ripley is renowned for one of the largest Village Greens in the Country – accommodating Ripley Cricket Club – the oldest Club in England – with miles of walking down to the River Wey as well as holding a massive Bonfire Night celebration which includes a breathtaking firework display and a Parade through the High Street!
The shops in the Village centres provide all the day to day needs with the nearest shopping centres of Cobham & Guildford being so very quick to access via the A3.
