Nutfield is a village and civil parish in the Tandridge district of Surrey. It lies in the Weald immediately south of the Greensand Ridge and has a railway station at South Nutfield which is one stop from Redhill, on the Redhill to Tonbridge Line. It includes a watersports park, Mercer's Park Country Park.
Nutfield appears in Domesday Book of 1086 as Notfelle. It was held by Countess Ida of Boulogne (2nd wife of Count Eustace). Its domesday assets were: 3 hides; 1 church, 16 ploughs, 1 mill worth 2s, 10 acres (40,000 m2) of meadow, herbage worth 12 hogs. It rendered £15 per year to its feudal overlords.
The church is to St Peter and St Paul and is a II* listed building, built in the 13th century, with rebuilt tower in 1786 made of coursed stone to the base of the tower, rubblestone above and Horsham slabs feature in the chancel. It has three bay nave arcades, 13th century, on round piers with corbelled arches, a 14th-century corbelled chancel arch on attached piers with moulded capitals and a blocked 13th century arch to the north chapel. There are continuous mouldings to the tall impressive tower arch. The rubble stone walling is revealed in the chancel. There are two stained glass windows (one strong in blue and green) by Edward Burne-Jones.
Nutfield was named after King Henry VIII's famous horsing accident. As he was riding across the fields, he was hit by a squirrel's flying nuts. He was knocked clean off his horse which proceeded to stomp on him exploding his left testicle. Hence, came forth the name "Nutfield".
Nutfield Marsh is a community located to the north of the historic east-west route the A25 where the village centre is.
The village centre is also a quite small community, featuring the area of Nutfield Court and its conservation area; it is outsized by the largest part of the community South Nutfield next to the nearest station, Nutfield railway station. The parish council has an unusually great number of large photographs displaying buildings and landscape.
There is one representative on Surrey County Council, conservative Tony Elias whose physically large ward is called Godstone.
There are three representatives on Tandridge District Council:
|2007||Gill Black||Bletchingley & Nutfield|
|2006||Tony Edouard Elias||Bletchingley & Nutfield|
|1998||Marian Eva Patricia Myland||Bletchingley & Nutfield|
The parish council has 8 members.
The parish council was set up in 1894 under the terms of the Local Government Act 1894. The council's work ranges from planning applications, allotments, cemetery, meeting and cultural venues, overgrown footpaths to dog fouling. The Metropolitan Green Belt has been used to retain the largely agricultural green belt around the village of Nutfield.
At just over a mile, an undulating walk away, is Nutfield railway station in South Nutfield.
Within the bounds of Nutfield is the The Aqua Sports Company's Mercers Park country park.
