M25 Thorpe Green



Post to the south Virgina Water Lyne Lane
Post to the north M25 Great Fosters Egham

Green Road
Hurst Farm. Livery and dressage stables managed by the Turner family since the 1980s.
Woodcock Farm. The site is partly developed but also seen as an asset in the Green Belt.

Hurst Lane
Oak Tree Farm
Padd Farm. In the same ownership since the 1980s and with numerous caravans on site.

Longside Lake
Lake which is the result of gravel extraction at Muckhatch Farm. Unusually this does not appear to be a commercial fishery and there are suggestions of a long history of failures.

Muckhatch Lane
Orchard Farm
Spring Farm

M25

Rosemary Lane
Area between here and the Mway was a gravel extraction site, now partly infilled.
Blossom Farm
West End Farm. Farmhouse this is late 16th altered in the 19th and 20th, It has an exposed timber framed of square panels. Inside are 17th plank doors and a winder staircase which probably retains the old treads underneath the wooden ones.
Frank Muir Memorial Field. Sports field named for the radio comedy script writer who lived locally. It was previously called Thorpe Field and is managed by the Thorpe Field Charity.

The Bence
St Mary’s Church of England Primary School.  There appears to have been a school on this site since at least the 1890s.  It was then a National School

Thorpe Bypass
This is the B388 and it runs parallel to the M25 but does not interact with it. It is apparently a modern road dating from post-1970..

Thorpe Green
Large green area with some housing, but cut off from the village by the Mway
