The Head[edit]

Lol - we have been deleted again - probably by some outsider - can't be bothered to check the edits, but you know who you are loser ; ) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 58.106.172.138 (talk) 08:16, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

Again we have been deleted by Suzanne the self appointed custodian of Leatherhead history?

The history of the town has no chance unless of course we delete Suzzanne as spam - now there's a thought!

I have reinstated The Head

Thank you!

I deleted info on this exceptionally minor local pop group which had no references on it other than it's own myspace advert. There was no other information about them on google. SuzanneKn 21:20, 28 December 2006 (UTC)


I strongly object to deletions being made after little or no research being carried out - looking for The Head in google is not really what I would classify as extensive research (by the way we are in there if you look!) If you have not heard of us, my guess is you that you either were not born or raised in Leatherhead or are under thirty. The links to the MySpace page are not an advert (you obviously do not know anything about MySpace) The http://www.myspace.com/theheadfromleatherhead page actually gives you the information you are looking for! If you took the time to read the history of the band, you would see that The Head are 'significant 'and for a period of nearly three years, were the most well known band in the area. The single was a local hit and the band and many of their fans were and still are, supporters of Leatherhead Football Club.

As for your comments with regard to, exceptionally, insignificant and minor - I suggest you do your research more thoroughly in the future!

Thank you

LEATHERHEAD FC[edit]

I object most strongly to the assertion that LeatherheadFC have fallen into obscurity.If this supposed to be part of an encyclopedia,then I suggest you get your facts right!A full history of the club is available on the website www.leatherheadfc-net. Since being restructured before the start of the 2000 season by the supporters, the club has gone from strentgh to strength, and is looking forward to competing in the new restructured league in the 2004/5 season, after a sucsessful season in the Ryman League Division 1.

Paul Everett,Commercial Manager,LEATHERHEAD FC

Clean-up required[edit]

The article is considerably behind many comparable articles (eg Guildford, Epsom, Dorking, Redhill). The content is currently heavily weighted towards the football club and there are several unqualified subjective comments (and even a retort to one of them within the article itself). Perhaps someone with knowledge of the town would expand the article with some more useful objective facts suitable for an encyclopedia! Halsteadk 23:18, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Article considerably improved since 6 January (old version: [1]). Comment above no longer relevant. Halsteadk 15:37, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Air Transport[edit]

Whether it is 'lucky' to be near two major international airports is a highly debatable claim, and is, in any event, oddly anthropomorphic language. Rather than edit to, say, 'Unfortunately, Leatherhead is rather close to two international airports...' I've stated the fact of the town's location relative to airports baldly. 81.187.211.188 18:41, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

I've removed the info on Air and it's pasted below as really the airport are a distance away

Air[edit]

  • Leatherhead is fairly close to two of London's major Airports.
    • Gatwick: 30-40 minutes anti-clockwise on the M25 then M23.
    • Heathrow: 30-40 minutes clockwise on the M25.

SuzanneKn

That odd wording was back, until I changed it to something like the above.

Earthlyreason 15:20, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Shouldn't we just remove the section on airports completely? Practically every town or city in the home counties is within similar easy reach of one or more of the London airports. This type of information really doesn't need to be in all the other articles, so it doesn't need to be in this article either.
This isn't a travel guide... let's keep the focus to Leatherhead. --David Edgar 15:46, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
I wouldn't strongly object to removing the airports reference. It's just that being 'half-way' between Heathrow and Gatwick is locally noted. No big deal. Earthlyreason 08:13, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Leisure activities[edit]

There was a long list of these which were mostly spam and actually not Leatherhead. I'm moved them to a list List of leisure activities in Leatherhead SuzanneKn 16:11, 11 February 2007 (UTC)

Not just the Head we're all spam ! - someone please advise her what spam is she obviously has no idea - we can't let this person determine what Leatherhead is - there may be nothing to do, but we still love the town and do not need her interference !! The Head

Fair use rationale for Image:MichaelCaine.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:MichaelCaine.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page.

Image copyright problem with Image:CWoA logo.jpg[edit]

The image Image:CWoA logo.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

Churches[edit]

It seems a little odd that only the Anglican church of St Mary & St Nicholas is given and none of the other churches that belong to "Churches Together in Leatherhead" (CTiL), namely: the Catholic Church of Our Lady and St Peter, Christ Church (United Reformed), Pioneer Engage and the Methodist Church. Details are available on the CTiL website: http://churchesleatherhead.org/

The are other groups that do not subscribe to CTiL such as Calvary Chapel (which is shown on the Leatherhead Article), the Strict Baptist Church and Kingscroft Chapel. There may be others besides. 46.208.57.74 (talk) 14:03, 19 April 2011 (UTC) Ray

Taxis[edit]

I've removed the taxis section from the article, but this appears to be controversial. Therefore I think this needs to be discussed. My proposal is to remove the taxi section from the article because the sole purpose of it seems to be to provide free advertising to local taxi companies. The text about there being a taxi rank outside the station seems unnecessary travel guide - style "information", hence why I feel that the entire section should be removed. ---- Mrmatiko (talk) 13:13, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

A late approval. It does not feature in WP:UKTOWNS. That's a good guide if anyone cares to read about what people should learn about places! - Adam37 Talk 15:49, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Town Centre[edit]

The town centre section within 'The Town', is difficult to understand and could benefit from re-writing SovalValtos (talk) 16:13, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
