WHY SUNBURY ON THAMES
The name Sunbury derives from the 10th century Saxon Lord Sunna, who built a ‘Burgh’, or settlement on the Sunbury riverside. Sunbury is made up of two separate areas, Lower Sunbury, which is also sometimes referred to as Sunbury Village and Sunbury Common which incorporates Sunbury Cross. Many of the links with the past are set in the former village alongside the Thames.
The Sunbury Clock at Sunbury Cross was erected in June 1897 in celebration of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and has become a distinctive Spelthorne landmark. Refurbishment of the shopping centre has made Sunbury Cross more prominent and attractive with a wider range of shopping and car parking facilities for shoppers, in a modern, pleasant environment.
Sunbury Park comprises 32 acres of open space, most of which remains in a rural and natural state. The park has many mature trees, including several majestic cedars. In sharp contrast to this ‘wild’ area is the beautifully maintained Walled Garden, which contains many examples of plants from all over the world, and exhibits numerous examples of past gardening styles. The Garden provides a magnificent setting for local events and exhibitions and is the venue for regular Sunday afternoon band concerts.
