Hook Hill, CR2

Place Name

This is thought to be a literal reference to hook shaped hill. Although it was marked on Ordnance Survey maps as Hook’s Hill with Hook’s Coppice nearby.The Survey of English Place Names says that it was the home of Richard ate Hoke as featured on the Surrey Rolls of 1332 – but this was probably an affectation to a non-existent manor.  It featured again as Hook Hill in 1593.  Both this road and nearby East Hill developed organically in the 1930s as part of a wider area of north Sanderstead.
