Ripley was first recorded in documents of around 1200. It developed with the establishment of the Augustinian Priory at Newark. The Abbey was dissolved in 1538-39 by Henry VIII. The growth of Portsmouth as a naval port in the time of Henry VIII brought prosperity to Ripley. Roadside Inns were given nautical names: The Ship, The Anchor and later The Jovial Sailor. In the 1880s, with the development of the bicycle, Ripley became known as the 'Mecca of all good cyclists'
('Bicycling News' 1887). The Anchor, one of Ripley's best-known buildings, was their welcomed 'resting place'. The village of Ripley, with its selection of shopping facilities and country pubs, is within walking distance whilst Woking and Guildford towns are also within easy reach. The area has excellent road and rail communications with the A3 and Junction 10 of the M25 orbital being within close proximity. Woking Station offers regular service to London Waterloo with trains about every 7 minutes and a journey time of around 22 minutes. Alternative services are provided from West Clandon with trains to London Waterloo arriving within one hour.
