Welcome to Weymede
Weymede was built by architect
Eric Lyons's Span in the mid-1960s, as a model of how to get a civilised modern
community living together in an area of beautiful landscape. Since then people
may have come and gone, some have even returned; the world has changed
dramatically. Man has walked on the moon, the internet has become a large part
of our lives and our children have access to more music hits than we could ever
have imagined, on a machine smaller than the old cassette tapes!! But Weymede
has stood the test of four decades of change and the ethos still remains intact.
The estate consists of 141
houses, of varying designs, set in 15 acres of landscape gardens boasting a wide
variety of trees and shrubs to provide an all year round “green” backdrop to
everyday living. Together with the private riverbank frontage to the River Wey,
this makes Weymede the ideal place to relax and get away from the stresses and
strains of everyday living. You don’t even have to travel far for shopping, as a
walk through the woods will take you to the nearby Brooklands development of
Tescos, Marks & Spencer, Argos and Currys.
There are excellent rail links
to London and the South Coast and ever growing theatre, cinema and entertainment
facilities in nearby Woking, just four miles away. Within walking distance of
Weymede are schools offering “effective and good”* infant and primary education
for 5-11 year olds, whilst Fullbrook School, in New Haw provides a good*
standard of education for 11-16 year olds.
As you enjoy this site you will
no doubt come to see how different Weymede is from perhaps any other housing
estate you have seen in the UK. This does not happen without a lot of love, care
and attention to prevent it joining the masses. As with all things these days
that are worth fighting for, time and money play a part in the maintenance
process; not least of all a modest service charge in place and covenants laid by
the residents for the residents.
Every summer the management
committee, with the help of some of the residents, organise “Weyday”; an evening
of fun, dancing, barbequing and community spirit. Recent Weydays have been a
great success! This site is about why Weymede is a great place to live.
