Development of the Estate began in 1888 with construction on Banstead Road and Foxley Lane, and was then extended into Upper Woodcote Village, which was completed in 1903. William Webb wanted to create a Garden Village in the suburbs, for people who worked in the City. For thirty years Webb set about creating a village in which buildings, gardens and the roads were carefully and distinctively designed to a high physical and aesthetic standard.
