Claygate Village
Claygate is a large village that lies about 15 miles due south west of the centre of London.  Claygate is a popular area for families who enjoy the countryside, but also need to travel to London to work.  Claygate is fortunate to have its own railway station that provides a regular service to London Waterloo. (Timetables)
Claygate is also attractive for families since it still manages to retain a village atmosphere in spite of being within the M25 London orbital motorway.  The centre of the village is the "parade"  with its compliment of shops, which includes a well known delicatessen, a branch of major high street bank (unusual in this age) and a combination of several other specialist shops and other essential shops.  Near to the parade is a medium sized supermarket (Co-op) which has long opening hours seven days a week.
