Aerial Force in Horley
Located in the county of Surrey is a town called Horley. More precisely, the town can be found south of Gatwick airport and Crawley. Due to its location, Horley has a fantastic link with the city of London, and this is helped by the existence of Horley train station. It is known as a commuter town, due to the existence of the links, as commuters are easily able to transport into the city centre for work.
Aerial Force work with a number of commuter towns, and Horley is one of our favourites. Living away from the city centre is attractive to many people who do not want to be caught up in London’s hectic, noisy lifestyle – preferring to have access to the area rather than be immersed in the culture every day of the week. Residents need a good home television or satellite system to keep them entertained when they are not located centrally. This is where Aerial Force can help.
We love to supply towns like Horley, with an aerial and satellite service that keeps them connected to their favourite programmes for as long as possible. Although Horley is located outside of the main city, our same day service still applies to the town’s residents, as does the free estimates on all installation offer that we provide. We enjoy researching the history of locations such as Horley, as this allows us to form a bond with our clients, who come from an area with an extremely interesting history which begins with a focus on the Manor of Horley.
Horley’s history dates back to the days of the Saxons, when the Manor of Horley was controlled by the Benedictine Abbey of St Peter. When the dissolution of the monasteries occurred, King Henry VIII took over the Manor, which indicates its importance and relevance in our nation’s history.
Nearly 100 years after King Henry VIII’s death – In 1602 – the manor became the property of Christ’s hospital in London. During this time, the town as it is now known, was simply a collection of 3 hamlets which existed around a huge common. Although the next couple of hundred years may have been peaceful to Horley’s residents, the 19th century affected Horley in a similar manner to the way it affected many other towns and cities around England.
This began with the introduction of two turnpikes being introduced to Horley in both 1809 and 1816. What the turnpikes did, was to allow coaches to be operated from London to Brighton – through Horley. This was subsequently followed by the railway, and a railway station was built in Horley in 1841.
As a result of the transportation changes, the population also changed and very steadily grew until about 1950. Since that time, the population has doubled – and this seems to be strongly linked with the increase in commuter links from Horley to London. There are further plans for the population and town of Horley to grow even more, and in 2005 the ‘Horley Master Plan’ announced plans for a further 2600 new homes to be built in the town.
