About Virginia Water

Virginia Water

 

 is a small town, on the outskirts of London. It is home to the Wentworth Estate and the Wentworth Club, where the first Ryder Cup was played. The estate is situated in the Borough of Runnymede in Surrey England, and the bodies of water stretching over the borders of Runnymede, Old Windsor and Sunninghill and Ascot, England. The town takes its name from the lake in the nearby Windsor Great Park. The lake's name was transferred from a previous stream, which was probably named after the 'Virgin Queen', Elizabeth I.

The lake

 

Virginia Water Lake lies within Windsor Great Park. It was created from a body of water of the same name: originally little more than a stream, which existed from at least the 17th century and may well be named after Elizabeth I, the Virgin Queen. The lake is mostly in Surrey, though the western extremities are in the civil parishes of Old Windsor and Sunninghill and Ascot in Berkshire.

Recently the shores of the lake have been used for lakeside scenes in the Harry Potter films and for the boat scenes in Robin Hood. The lake is also the site of the British record capture of a pike, weighing 58 lb 5oz. During World War II, the lake was drained, as its recognisable shape was thought likely to provide enemy guidance at night to Windsor and to important military targets in the area.

 

 

The town

 

The 2001 census population of Virginia Water was 6,113. Many of the town's houses are large detached homes situated on the private Wentworth Estate home of the famous Wentworth Club which has four golf courses. The Ryder Cup was first played there. It is also home to the headquarters of the PGA European Tour, the professional golf tour. The estate reached the headlines in 1998 when General Augusto Pinochet was kept under house arrest in one of its houses prior to his extradition. Sarah, Duchess of York is a former royal resident. Many entertainment personalities also have or have had homes on the estate including Chris Squire, Sir Elton John, songwriter Bernie TaupinDiana DorsRuss AbbotCliff Richard, Bryan Forbes and his wife Nanette Newman and Sir Bruce Forsyth. Golfers who have or have had homes on the estate include Sir Nick Faldo, European Ryder Cup captain Bernard GallacherSam TorranceSandy LyleErnie Els and Thomas Bjørn. Ex-formula 1 team owner Eddie Jordan and boxer Prince Naseem Naseem Hamed also live on the Estate. The author and traveller Bill Bryson spent his early married life in the village. Paul Pindar, Chief Executive of Capita lives there. Edward VIII was a resident of nearby Fort Belvedere.

Virginia Water is also home to many central London commuters. It is close to the M25M4 and M3 motorways. The town has a four track railway station in the middle of the estate on the line between London WaterlooWeybridge and ReadingHeathrow Airport is located four miles to the north-east. The town has two rows of shops, although many inhabitants travel to the nearby towns of Kingston-upon-ThamesAscot and Windsor for shopping. The towns of SunningdaleEnglefield Green and Ascot are the closest. Holloway Sanatorium, an asylum for the mentally ill, where the writer Bill Bryson worked upon first settling in England was located near to the town but closed in the 1980s and was converted to private accommodation.
