Leatherhead, Surrey, is situated 5 miles north of Dorking with a population of over 40,000. Its name is derived for the Saxon for “public ford”, the original settlement located at a fording point on the River Mole, where it dissects the North Downs. Its attractive narrow streets and historic inns are a reminder of its importance in coaching days. There was a church here in Anglo Saxon times and part of the present church buildings date back to the 12th century.
