When it comes to recycling, there are ways to complete your task which is more efficient than others. We appreciate that recycling large amounts of rubbish can be difficult, so we’re taking a look at a few tips for summer recycling, all of which will work best when paired with our skip hire Sutton. Don’t be so quick to throw away While it can seem easy to throw something away when it has outlived its use, this can result in a big pile of rubbish which is harder to get rid of. If you can reuse something, or repurpose it for another function, then it is advised that you do so. For example, old furniture which is made of wood could be broken down and used as firewood. Don’t throw it all in together Regardless of where the rubbish goes, it all ends up at a landfill site if you don’t recycle it. This means that it can and will just sit for hundreds of years, as plastic and other such materials do not break down. To try and prevent this, we suggest that you sort the rubbish carefully before putting into any skip, and checking to see if there’s anything that can be recycled before you do. Use a reliable skip This may seem like a given, but when it comes to recycling, a good skip can make all the difference. Our skips, for example, are designed to be able to allow you to get rid of as much waste as possible, without sacrificing on price. A good skip will prove to be helpful when you’re trying to remove a lot of waste at once, so if you’re looking for skip hire Sutton, you should waste no expense and use the best skips available.Overall, these are a few tips for when you have a lot of recycling and waste to dispose of during the summer time. It is important that you take the right steps to ensure that the waste you do throw away is sorted correctly and can be recycled as efficiently as possible. If you’re looking to hire a skip, then Wastebusters can provide you with one, so you can have all of the resources you need to get rid of your waste in a manner which is quick and efficient. If the waste is gone quickly, then you can get on with enjoying your summer!
You can put many different things in a skip. From general waste, to garden materials, the skip is a very useful resource to be able to have. However, not everything you have in your waste can be put into a skip. We’re taking a look at the things which you put into a skip. Fridges One of the first things you’ll find yourself unable to put into a skip is your fridge. The fridges that a lot of people have in their homes frequently contain many harmful chemicals which require it to be safely disposed of. You can get rid of one by selling it to a specialist, or even contacting a waste disposal service, but you definitely cannot put it into your skip. Anything with asbestos Asbestos is definitely a dangerous material to be having inside a home, or even outside of it. The fibres inside the asbestos are toxic to the human system, and they can also lie dormant inside the circulatory system for years without being discovered. This means that you can’t just chuck something with asbestos onto a pile of rubbish inside a skip. The materials need to be disposed of in a safe and careful manner, as to prevent anyone becoming infected. If you want to find out more, please see the latest UK legislation for waste materials. Tyres Last but by no means least, the thing that you really cannot put into a skip are tyres. This is because the materials which come from skips are actually quite dangerous when burned, producing toxic fumes which can cause chemical pneumonia when left unattended once burned in high frequency. This means that you’re going to need to dispose of them properly and safely, in such a way that does not leave them in a position where they will be burnt.Overall, these are just a few of the things which you should not put into skips when you dispose of waste. When you don’t properly dispose of certain materials, you run the risk of them being thrown in with all of the other rubbish and causing problems later down the road, whether that is for the people who are actually sorting the rubbish in the skips, or for anyone else. If you need something moving that can go in a skip, then WasteBusters Skip Hire can help you. We can provide you with the skip you need in order to make your life as convenient as possible. Call us today and find out what skip hire service is right for you.
When dealing with large quantities of rubbish which needs moving, there are many ways to get rid of it. However, the best and most efficient way to get rid of waste is to use a skip. There are many advantages for residents in Sutton to use skip hire, even if people aren’t fully aware of them. We’re taking a look at the reasons why a skip is a good idea. There’s a lot of storage space available One of the first and most significant benefits to using a skip is that there’s much more space available for you to throw rubbish away. Building materials or just general rubbish can pile up quite quickly, and make for lack of room on the premises if there are bags of rubbish piled high. A skip allows you to put it all in one place where it doesn’t take up masses of room, which is much more convenient and efficient. You can throw away a greater volume of rubbish Another one of the main advantages to using a skip is that you can get rid of much more rubbish than you could previously. When not using a skip, you’re limited to space which is available in bin bags and rubbish containers, and then you’ll need to dispose of it with whatever capacity you have for transport. With a skip, it’s much easier to throw vast heaps of rubbish away and dispose of it. The skip hire service is brought to you Perhaps one of the more convenient advantages to hiring a skip is that you can have it brought to you. Instead of going out and getting all the resources like bin bags, and then needing to maybe even hire out a van to transport the rubbish away to a disposal facility, you can instead have a skip brought to you and then taken away again without much interruption to your day. Overall, there are definite advantages to a skip. Being able to throw away a higher quantity of rubbish, as well as being able to store that waste in such a way that is not inconvenient is something which would be well received. If you need skip hire in Sutton or skip hire in south Croydon, then we can help. We offer fully licensed skips which are available for you to hire out whenever you want, in a process overseen by our trained staff. We strive to provide you with the best possible service, and also aim to recycle 80% of your waste.

There are a few things you should consider before picking up the phone to your local skip hire company… 1. Where will you put the skip? Skips can be placed on the road or off the road depending on space available and local parking restrictions.If you have space for a skip off the road, make sure access is at least 10 feet (3.3 metres) wide to allow the skip lorry to drive in and unload.If it’s going on the road, check that there are no parking restrictions such as yellow lines or red routes that prevent you from having one, and that there is sufficient space for the skip lorry to park and unload. 2. What can you put in the skip? Skips are designed for general bulky waste not hazardous materialsHazardous items (such as fridges, asbestos, paint, fluorescent tubes, gas canisters, oil, computer monitors and old TV sets) need to be disposed of separately and should not be put into the skip. Visit www.environment-agency.co.uk for a full list of hazardous waste products.Remember that if you’re hiring a skip in London on behalf of a friend, DIY helper or your builder, it’s your responsibility to inform the London skip hire company about the types of waste that will be placed in the skip. 3. How long do you need to hire the skip for? Can you complete your project in one day or will you need a skip over a period of days?Make sure you are clear with your skip hire company about how long you will need it, because you don’t want your skip being removed too soon. On the other hand, remember that more days typically cost more money, so it may be more cost effective to get some help loading the waste to reduce the time you hire it for.Equally, if it’s important the skip is removed from your property before a certain date, make sure that you get a clear commitment from the skip hire company about when they will remove it because some skip companies have a habit of forgetting! 4. Do you need lamps and a cover if it’s kept overnight? Any skip left overnight on a public highway must be lit and also may need to be covered to ensure no contents can spill out into the road. Covering your skip up overnight is also a very good way of discouraging your nieghbours from using it for their junk too!Your skip hire company should provide you with appropriate lamps and a cover but be aware that, as the person hiring the skip, you may be liable for a fine if your local authority isn’t satisfied with the compliance of your skip.

Information correct at time of writing. Source: WASTEBUSTERS skip hire (August 2010) 7. What size skip should you order? Skips come in a variety of sizes. The table below sets out the most common sized skips available in London together with an indication of how many full bin bags they could fit in them.To determine what size skip to order, you’ll need to take into account how much waste you think you have, any space constraints you have on site, and also the period of time you think you it will take to generate the waste (because this will affect things like skip permits and parking suspensions).Larger skips – assuming you fill them – work out cheaper per cubic yard and it pays to be generous in your estimate of the volume you require so you don’t end up having to order a second skip.However, if you are considering hiring a large skip, be aware that the Highways Act states a maximum of 16ft 5in x 6ft7in is allowed on the road and many London authorities have smaller on road limits, so check first.When loading, remember that your skip can only be filled level to the top – suppliers face prosecution for unsafe or overweight loads.London skip sizes London Skip Hire Sizes Skip Volume Size Bin Bags Price(common sizes) (cu yds) (lxwxh) (to fill skip) (inc VAT)Mini Skip 2 4x3x3ft 25 £140Mini Skip 3 5x4x3ft 30 £150Midi Skip 4 6x4x3ft 35 £180Builders’ Skip 6 10x4x4ft 50 £220Builders’ Skip 8 12x6x4ft 80 £250Large Skip 12 13x6x6ft 110 £270Roll-on Roll-off 18 20x8x6ft 150 £360Roll-on Roll-off 30 20x8x8ft 200 £430Roll-on Roll-off 40 20x8x9ft 300 £500Figures are approximated. Source: wastebusters skip hire (August 2010) 8. How much should you expect to pay to hire a skip in London? The Table above shows an indicative range for the various skips sizes in London for a hire period of one to two weeks. Please note that these rates include VAT but exclude the cost of any skip permit or parking suspension.Most London skip hire companies allow you to keep the skip for one or two weeks and will charge extra for extended periods.Actual rates vary widely depending on the operator, time of year, day of the week, type of waste and location. 9. Which London skip hire company should you use? There are numerous skip hire operators in London – searching for ‘Skip Hire London’ on Google will bring up a long list.Other than checking they are legitimate (see Question 10 below), the key questions to focus on are price, speed of response, and to what extent that can guarantee collection date.10. How can you check that the London skip hire company is legitimate? As a householder, you are liable for fines of up to £5000 if you hand your waste over to a non-authorised waste carrier.Unfortunately there are still a few rogue operators renting out skips in London so to make sure you’re not dealing with one of them we recommend you ask for the following:i. Waste carrier’s license number – proving that they are properly registered with the Environment Agency to remove wasteii. A written ‘duty of care’ waste transfer note – detailing the transfer of waste from you to themiii. A copy of their public liability insurance – to ensure that if they damage your property they have appropriate cover in place.

The History of Skips by WASTEBUSTERS skip hire Croydon The sight of a standard skip sitting on a building site in the United Kingdom is one that many people would take for granted, simply walking by without giving the sight much thought or consideration. However this critical addition to the construction industry has an interesting and colourful history that few are familiar with but that marks an important development in British industry. Many people mistakenly attribute the invention of the skip to waste industry magnate Richard Biffa in the 1970s, claiming that the addition was made as a way of diversifying the Biffa company into commercial waste collection. The actual origin of the skip, however, came a little earlier. As with many 20th Century inventions, the skip was a product of post World War Two necessity and the original concept was actually imported from Germany before appearing in the U.K. during the sixties. With the economy still struggling after the war, it became impractical for tipper drivers to wait idly whilst their vehicles were loaded with waste. Furthermore, in the absence of a better solution, construction rubblee was left to pile up until it could eventually be collected, creating a hazardous working environment for both builders and the general public. With time and money being wasted and safety concerns mounting, a new solution was devised by the firm George Cross and Co. and the foundations for the invention of the modern skip were laid with the intention of improving efficiency and safety in the construction and waste industries. The introduction of the skip allowed waste to be contained safely and then when it was time for collection, the tipper driver could simply load the filled skip itself onto his vehicle, rather than loading the waste bit by bit, consequently saving a significant amount of valuable time for businesses struggling in the post war climate. With manpower hours freed up and business efficiency improved, the idea of the skip quickly became commonplace in the waste and construction industries and although the item may be taken for granted today, the item made a massive contribution to Britain’s recovery from World War Two and remains just as valuable and necessary today. The environment is at the forefront of most people’s minds these days, so if you are interested in reducing your carbon footprint, you might be wondering how to make your home more eco-friendly. Here are some helpful tips to make your property more environmentally sound. Insulation Improving your home’s insulation is one of the best ways to make your home more eco-friendly. By increasing the insulation in your loft, cavity walls and around pipes, you will retain more warmth which will save you money on your heating bills as well as lowering your carbon footprint. Use Reclaimed and Recycled Materials When adding features or furniture to your property, consider using reclaimed materials or those which are made from recycled products. Choose Solar Panels Harnessing solar energy is a great way of making your home more eco-friendly and it can even make you money in the long run as you can sell the energy produced to the National Grid. Install Double or Triple Glazing A phenomenal amount of heat is lost through your home’s windows, so you can cut your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time by investing in double or even triple glazing for your property. Use Energy Saving Lightbulbs One of the cheapest and easiest ways to save money and the environment at the same time is to consider switching your standard lightbulbs to energy saving ones. Put Up Thicker Curtains Even if you can’t afford to invest in new windows, you can still consider the environment when choosing new curtains. Thermal drapes will help to lower the amount of energy needed to heat your rooms. Turn Down The Thermostat It has been proved that lowering your home’s thermostat by just one degree will help you make savings on your heating bill while significantly reducing the amount of energy your property consumes every year. Consider A Water Saving Shower Head Saving water is one way of making your home more eco-friendly, and an easy way of doing this is to switch your standard shower head for a water-saving one. You won’t notice the difference when you wash, but you’ll see savings if you use a water meter and you’ll be helping to protect the environment.

It is south of Croydon's historic boundaries at Purley and is approximately 13 miles (20.9 km) from Charing Cross. ContentsHistory Edit A topological view of Coulsdon, showing the various hill and valleys.The location forms part of the North Downs. The hills contain chalk and flint.

Byron sold a large amount of land to the 'London to Brighton railway company'. Byron moves from Hooley House to Portnall's Farm.1850 Hartley Farm was demolished and Coulsdon Court was built by Thomas Byron. It was said to be constructed of the last bricks to be made locally at Crossways (at Coulsdon Road, Old Coulsdon). In 1854, to avoid the Court, he adjusted the paths of some local roads, and created a gated drive from the public road.1863 Edmund Byron inherited the title. After his use of the Enclosure acts were curtailed when he lost a case 1877 at the Court of Chancery, large areas were sold in 1883 to the Corporation of London. The importance of this event was reported in The Times. He also sold and gave away various plots.In 1921, Edmund Byron died. The remaining lands owned by the Byrons were sold. Land and manorial rights were passed to the Purley and Coulsdon Urban District Council.For many centuries, the lands contained several farms and manors and only on the coming of its branch railway were a few wealthy people from outside of the traditional borders attracted to build grand houses, by 19th century descriptions, such as: This parish, which is situated on the road from London to Brighton, occupies an elevated position, and commands extensive and varied prospects. — S. Lewis, A Topographical Dictionary of England, 1848Until 1921, the Byron family had largely maintained this tradition, despite sales of earlier land. The sales in the 1860s increased the number of landowners. Most housing in Smitham (Bottom/Valley) and the clustered settlement of Old Coulsdon, as well as the narrower valley between them, was built in the 80 years from 1890 to 1970. The area developed mixed suburban and in its centre urban housing: The whole aspect of the parish has been completely transformed during the last twenty years by building. It was a little while ago entirely rural with a few new houses scattered along the line of the railway and up the valley towards Caterham, whence another deep depression in the chalk runs down to Smitham Bottom. Now there are continuous rows of villas and cottages and shops from Croydon to south of Coulsdon station. — Victoria County History, vol. 4, 1912The valley and routes in Smitham Bottom encouraged some early settlements. An Inn at the 'Red Lion' appears in the Bainbridge map of 1783. The coming of the railway and improved road links encouraged buildings along the sides of the major roadways and close to the stations. Since 1921. the sales of the old estate lands have replaced a countryside of discrete farms, with thousands of suburban dwellings. Coulsdon segregated its long-haul from its short-haul traffic by gaining the Farthing Way A23 bypass, which opened in December 2006 as part of the Coulsdon Town Centre Improvement Scheme. Economy Edit In the first two decades of the second millennium, Coulsdon's retail area lost Woolworth's and the bookstore on Brighton Road and opened The Pembroke and Caffé Nero. Waitrose has a longstanding branch in the centre, and Tesco Express opened in the period mentioned. A planned Sainsbury's with apartments above has been singled out for note by periodical New London Architecture. Aldi opened a branch in Coulsdon in 2015. Coulsdon has few large company head offices but substantial storage and technology premises. One notable head office is that of Jane's Information Group. Quarrying Edit The Hall family had been active in the Croydon area as coal and lime merchants since the 18th. In 1853 they leased an area of land in Coulsdon. In 1864 they close their quarries at Merstham and increased their quarrying for chalk and flints and use of Lime kilns in Coulsdon. This quarry at Coulsdon (Marlpit Lane) was named the 'Stoats Nest Quarry'. The works had its own internal railway system which connected to nearby main lines. In 1898, Hall were refused permission (by their landlord) to build cement works on the Coulsdon site. The lime principally supplied for waterworks, gas works and tanneries. Demand reduced in 1902 when the Army changed from leather to webbing equipment. And in 1905 there was no longer demand from the gasworks. Between 1905 and 1910 chalk was supplied for the Hall's cement works at Beddington. In 1905, 13,000 tons of chalk were sent by rail from Coulsdon. By 1918, it was processing lime for use as fertilizer. In 1920, the Hall company purchased 102 acres from their landlord, Byron. This offered their full benefit of the railways, kilns on the land. Halls maintained a trading depot in the Marlpit Lane quarry from 1923. It was named the "Ullswater trading estate". The limeworks closed in 1961. Place name Edit The town's spelling, pronunciation and location have changed. Coulsdon originally referred to the area now known as Old Coulsdon. The name derives from Cuðrædsdun via Cullesdone pre-1130, Culesdone pre-1190, Cullisdon 1242, Culesdene 1255, Colendone c1270, Kulisdon 1279, Collesdon 1288, Cullesdon 1323, Colleston 1324, Coulesdon 1346, Cullysdon 1377, Colynsdon 1428, Colysdon 1439, Collysdon 1563, Cowlesdon 1557, Coulsdon 1597, Cowisden 1604, Couldisdon 1610, Couldesdon 1675, Culsdon 1678, Colsdon 1724. Additional variations include Curedesdone 675, Cudredesdone 675, Cudredesdune 967, Coulsdon 1083, Colesdone 1085, Culesdon 1234, Culisdon 1242, Cudredestreow 1251, Cullesdon 1266, Colesdene 1287, Colesdon 1290, Colesdun 1290, Culesdon 1291, Culesden 1292, Colieston 1324, Coulesden 1326, Coueleston 1332, Colisdon 1344, Culeston 1346, Cullysdon 1377, Cullisdoun 1403, Cullesdoun 1422, Culledon 1424, Colynsdon 1428, Collesdon 1439, Culsdon 1446, Cowlesdon 1539, Collesden 1544, Cowlesdowne 1553, Cullesdoy 1556, Colsdon 1558, Cowlesden 1558, Cullesden 1558, Cowllysdon 1567, Cowisden 1618, Coulsden 1619, Cowsdon 1620, Coolsden 1650, Coulesden 1650, Coilsoun 1655, Coulden 1655. The widely accepted origin of the name is ‘hill of a man called Cūthrǣd’, (from OE pers. name + dūn, a hill). Alternatively the name originates from the Celtic or primitive Welsh "cull", meaning a leather bag, scrotum, bosom, womb or belly. The current town centre appears as Leydown Cross(1738) or Leaden Cross(1800) and Smitham Bottom. In 1905, the parish council, and then the Post Office renamed "Smitham bottom" as "Coulsdon". The name "Smitham Bottom" has also changed. Smetheden (1331), Smithdenbottom (1536), Smythedean(e)(1548), Smythden Bottom (1588), Smitham Bottom (1719) Localities Edit Coulsdon is a largely suburban district of London. The central area has substantial industrial, automotive and distribution services, convenience, standard socialising and niche retail as well as local professions of a typical town in the country, by its main road and main railway stations: Coulsdon South and Coulsdon Town. The alternate centre, Old Coulsdon, has a recreation ground/cricket pitch-focused village green, a much smaller parade of shops than Coulsdon's high street between Coulsdon South and Town stations and a medieval church. London's 'Brighton Road', locally the official name, and the railways, served by both semi-fast and stopping services, give Smitham Bottom/Valley a bustling, busier setting for economic life. Old Coulsdon EditOld Coulsdon occupies the south-east of the district. Scattered, rather than clustered are six listed buildings, for their national heritage and architectural value, at Grade II. Two categories above this, in the highest class, Grade I is the Church of St John the Evangelist here. This is by the recreation ground, shortly after Marlpit Lane has been joined by Coulsdon Road, from the north. St John's is late thirteen century with extensive later additions, made of flint and rubble with much brick patching. Its nave spans two (window) bays. Older still is its "good" chancel of 1250 with stepped sedilia and piscina. The west tower above the entrance is of circa 1400 with corner buttresses and a tapering broach spire. A nave at right angles, replacing the south aisle; in decorated style was designed for its 1958 construction by J B S Comper. Smitham Bottom or Valley EditAt the heart of the geographical feature Smitham Bottom (where three dry valleys merge into one) is this downtown part of the district. Most commerce and industry is here, set beside the Brighton Road, which is since 2006 a town centre arc of the A23 road and on Chipstead Valley Road which terminates half way along the arc, leading directly to Woodmansterne. The various local feeder roads reach this street, including the combined one from the south-east, Marlpit Lane, under the A23 without needing a junction with that trunk (long-distance) route (which later becomes the M23). The soil is dry, and water was obtained even in 1912 by deep wells here in the chalk. This dry valley in the chalk, Smitham Bottom, has a watercourse below, the water of which in until the 16th century occasionally in times of flood ran here but after this, inexplicably, waits to break out as far as at the foot of the chalk in Croydon and Beddington, running through it. The Marlpit business and industrial estate EditMarlpit (a former chalk quarry) is the town's Marlpit Industrial / Business Park estate, which is strong in storage, distribution and technology. The Mount or Clockhouse EditThe Mount or Clockhouse is a square neighbourhood on a hill plateau with marked borders along three residential roads from Coulsdon, one of which continues from the town centre as the London Loop path, via the Banstead Downs and East Ewell to Nonsuch Palace 4 miles (6.4 km) north-west. It shares its local authority with that place as it is part of the London Borough of Sutton. Coulsdon Woods EditThis neighbourhood is a loosely defined residential part of Coulsdon, equally on undulating ground. Cane Hill EditThis area forms the area of the former buildings and grounds of Cane Hill Hospital. An approved development of the former site of Cane Hill Hospital by Barratt Developments may start in 2014, which if so, will create over six hundred new dwellings. In 2013, Barratt published a Public Consultation document and report of feedback. Resident's protests and concerns relate to the likely effect on local infrastructure, including access routes, the proposed mix of housing, transport and the provision of educational services. Open spaces Edit In 1883, to prevent further loss of Common lands arising from the Inclosure Acts, the Corporation of London (under provisions of the Corporation of London (Open Spaces) Act, 1878), purchased from Squire Byron (Lord of the Manor of Coulsdon) Farthing Downs, Coulsdon Common and Kenley Common, to add to the earlier purchase of Riddlesdown Common. The London Borough of Croydon own and maintain several parks, including Happy Valley, which, together with Farthing Downs, is designated is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Rickman Hill Park is the highest public park in London, at 155 metres above sea level. A memorial park and recreation ground was purchased from the Byrons by Coulsdon & Purley Urban District Council and Hall & Co Ltd in 1920, it was opened in 1921. The London Loop footpath passes through Happy Valley and Farthing Downs between Hamsey Green and Banstead. The Coulsdon section was the first of the 24 to be opened. Grange Park was obtained partly by Public Subscription but mostly by the Urban District Council in 1929 from the owners of the Coulsdon Court Golf Course. The land was sold for use as an open space or pleasure and recreation ground. Grange Park was formerly part of Squire Byrons Coulsdon Court Estate. Grange Park is situated in a designated conservation area in the heart of Old Coulsdon and incorporates a children's play area and recreational green space. In total, Grange Park represents local green space of around 8 acres. Friends of Grange Park, Old Coulsdon are fundraising to completely refurbish the old and run down children's play area. So far they have raised £38,000 to date and the cost of their project proposals which are now unveiled is £100,000. They must try to raise an ambitious £12,000 before December 2015, which will see them reach a milestone of 50% of their project costs and enable them to apply for the remaining project funds. Places of religious interest Edit Methodist Church, CoulsdonPlaces of worship include: St Mary and St Shenouda Coptic Orthodox Church.St Andrew's Anglican church. From 1914.St Aidan's Roman Catholic church from 1964.The Brighton Road Methodist church.

The Old Coulsdon Hash House Harriers (or "OCH3") is a local hashing group. Gordon Pirie (1931–1991), an English long-distance runner lived in Coulsdon and was a member of South London Harriers, one of the oldest and most successful athletics club in Britain. The club has been based in Coulsdon since 1913, and remains there to this day. The club competes in cross-country, road running and track and field events, and trains from its Coulsdon HQ three times a week. The club has been heavily involved in recent years in building an eight lane all weather running track at Woodcote School. It also has an active and successful triathlon section. Bare-knuckle boxing fights were held at Smitham Bottom. Records exist of fights in 1788 and 1792. Bowls. Played at the Marlpit Lane Recreation Ground since the 1920s.

It was one of the strongest teams in the country in the late 18th and early 19th century and once boasted eight England internationals, as well as a young Stuart Surridge. The club was possibly the first to use three stumps and two bails and frequently played matches on the most famous early cricket grounds such as Mitcham, and later in Grange Park in the village. In 1995 falling player numbers forced the club to merge with the nearby Redhill Cricket Club, playing at the Ring on Earlswood Common in the Earlswood neighbourhood of Redhill as Redhill & Old Coulsdon Cricket Club. Cricket was originally played at 'Smitham Bottom' opposite the Red Lion. The first archived results come from a games was played in 1731(Surrey vs East Grinstead). A 'Cricket Shed' appears in Smitham Bottom as a fixed building in a map of 1785. In the 1880s, this area became was built over, and the club moved to Old Coulsdon.

Demography Edit From 1889 until 1965 Coulsdon was in the administrative county of Surrey — between 1915 and 1965 the residents conferring additional local powers to Coulsdon and Purley Urban District. Under the London Government Act 1963 the London Borough of Croydon was formed. The United Kingdom Census 2011 recorded that the two wards: Coulsdon East (ward) and Coulsdon West (ward), divided by the A23 road contained respectively: 12,244 people living in 4,912 homes and 13,449 living in 4,793 homes. The percentage of the population who declared their health as very good was 47% and 51% respectively. White British was the majority ethnic group in both wards: 80% and 70% of the population respectively.

The Surrey Iron Railway was enhanced by the "Coulsdon Merstham & Godstone Railway". These were horsedrawn railways which carried quarried materials and crops from Coulsdon and Merstham, and returned with fuel, metals and other materials. To maintain a regular elevation at Coulsdon required large changes in direction and the construction of 20 ft embankments and a road bridge. Remnants of the 1805 railway embankment are still evident. The railway closed in 1838 due to underuse. A bridge over the Chipstead Valley road was demolished as dangerous in 1854. 1841. The London & Brighton Railway line opened. 1856. The Caterham railway opened. Initially intended to serve residents of Old Coulsdon, a station named 'Coulsdon' opened; later to be renamed 'Kenley'. 1893. Authorisation was given for a new (second) line to be built between Purley and Kingwood. This was the Chipstead Valley Railway which was later extended to become the Tattenham Corner line. Constructed by the South Eastern Railway in 1896, it opened in 1897 as a single-track line. 1900. The main line between Croydon and Coulsdon was widened. A new (third) line was opened added named the Quarry Line between Coulsdon North and Earlswood (bypassing Redhill). Constructed 1898–9. The line involved engineering work including cuttings, embankments and a covered way at Cane Hill Hospital. 1923.
