Addlestone

A small town close to junction 11 of the M25. The Crouch Oak, once marked the boundary to Windsor Forest and legend suggests that Elizabeth I stopped here to picnic.
The town, now site of the Civic offices, was once home to the Bleriot Aeroplane Factory, which played a part in the country's development of the aeroplane.
In 1965 Chertsey Urban District Council completed its new Civic offices in Station Road, Addlestone, and these premises became the home of the new Runnymede Borough Council when Chertsey Urban District Council merged with Egham Urban District Council in 1974.
In Addlestone there is a Police station, a library, one large supermarket, and a range of shops, all of which radiate along Station Road.
The people are friendly, with a strong local identity and the town can be interesting for those who want to explore the area by foot.
