Come with me to the wonderful Surrey Hills

Walton on the Hill is a small village in Surrey and sits on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

My name is Andrew Wilson and over the past 10 years I have built up a beautiful collection of high-quality coffee table books on the towns and villages of South West London.

Although now living in Putney, I was born and raised in Walton on the Hill and when my mother sadly passed away 3 years ago some friends in the village suggested I might like to add to my collection and produce a book on Walton and the surrounding area.

As the name suggests, Walton on the Hill lies amidst the beautiful hills of North Surrey, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Although still within the M25, it’s a wonderful place from which to visit some of the best sights in Southern England; so the famous Downs in Epsom, Boxhill of course, Leith Hill and the lesser known, but equally beautiful, Langley Vale are all within easy reach and strongly featured within the book.

Together with Walton, my book will also cover the towns and villages of Tadworth, Kingswood, Epsom, and Dorking. As well as capturing all these places photographically, in partnership with the local history society I shall also be complementing my collection of images with the fascinating history that lies behind all these places.

Expensive to produce, I am looking for your kind support of this beautiful book, due for publication in November this year (2020) and just in time for Christmas. Besides the book itself, which will make a wonderful gift, I have also put together an exclusive collection of other gifts based around the content, which will only be available to supporters of this promotion; so a range greetings cards and postcards, coasters, prints of your choice and some very special photographic days out with me to explore the place for real.

As well as helping realise my book, which has been 3 years in the making, you will also be helping a couple of local charities with much needed funding, so Tadworth Court, the local children’s hospital, and Walton Primary School.

I do hope you can help me and thank you – Andrew Wilson
