Chertsey is a town in the west of Shepperton and 18 miles from Central London. Archaeological remains found in the area show that it was inhabited before the founding of Chertsey Abbey in 666 AD.
The Abbey was wealthy and powerful. The Abbot family controlled most of the land in Surrey, houses in London and the Cardigan Priory in South Wales. The Vikings attacked The Abbey in 871 and killed the Abbot and around 90 monks.
After the dissolution of the monasteries, Chertsey grew into a market town. In the 17th and 18th century, it served as a coaching town. During the 18th and 19th century, it became the centre for clock making and had a bell foundry and a separate iron foundry.
Today, this town has a total population of 14,806. The town centre remains unchanged. It has several older listed buildings including the Cedars, the home of the Chertsey Museum. The museum houses the Olive Matthews costume collection, which holds around 3,000 pieces of costumes. All of these were donated by Matthews in 1969.
