For a town that grew from 6000 in 1901 to 39000 by 1949, and now lies in the shadow of Heathrow and the M3, Staines and its neighbourhood still retains some of its historic character.
The church has kept its brick tower of 1631. Church St has several houses of the Georgian period, while the High St enjoys 17th and 18th century houses along with the stately Blue Anchor inn of 1700.
The 1829 bridge with its noble stone arches is by the same Rennie whose fame lies in having designed Waterloo Bridge.
Laleham can claim the great Victorian poet, Matthew Arnold. He was born in a now-demolished house where his famous father, Dr Arnold, tutored before becoming Headmaster of Rugby.
Such an eminent Victorian was a hard act to follow. Matthew managed to become an inspector of schools, as well as producing such enduring poems as ‘The Scholar Gypsy’, ‘The Forsaken Merman’ and the marvellous ‘Dover Beach’ whose last three words form the title of a memorable Hollywood movie.
Matthew was buried in the churchyard of the 12th century All Saints in 1888.
Littleton has a splendid church next to the reservoir: a study in red brick with its early 16th century tower, porch, clerestory windows above its nave - and an 18th century chapel.
Inside is just as good, full of unusual wooden fittings: a medieval locker; pews and choir stalls; rood screen and pulpit. Best of all are the utterly un-English baroque altar rails with their florid Flemish carving.

2. Visual impact
An authentic wood floor can look truly amazing once it has been restored or renovated. However, its
appearance can be undermined by a damaged or ageing wooden staircase. Sanding the staircase
and applying a finish to the wooden stairs can dramatically improve its appearance and make sure
it’s consistent with the floor.
It can be tempting to put off renovating or restoring your wooden staircase. After all, you could treat it
as a separate project. However, this may be more time consuming in the long run, particularly if the
staircase deteriorates before you get round to having it restored. It’s therefore advisable to save
yourself time and energy by having it improved while you overhaul your wood floors.
Here at The Floor Sanding Maters, we specialise in floor sanding, renovation and treating wooden floors
with various finishes. However, we’re also willing to carry out sanding work on wood staircases.
We’re happy to discuss applying other treatments (such as polishing or staining) to wooden staircases
too, so contact us today for more information.
Don't neglect your wooden staircase
Are you currently considering renovating or restoring the wood floor in your hall or on your landing? If
so, it’s important not to forget about your wooden staircase. It’s easy to focus exclusively on the main
floor and completely neglect the stairs. After all, the main floor is much more visually obvious and may s
seem easier to renovate. However, there are several reasons why it’s crucial to include your wood
staircase in your renovation or restoration project. We’ll enumerate them in today’s blog post.
The most important reason to renovate your old wood staircase is also the simplest: wooden staircases
can become dangerous if they aren’t properly maintained. The boards can loosen, warp or begin to rot.
If you happen to trip on a warped or loosened stair, or if a rotten board gives way while you’re standing
on it, you could fall down the stairs. When you’re having your wood floor renovated, it’s advisable to
take the opportunity to have your wood stairs improved too. We strongly recommend that you have
them is nded to make them more even and reduce trip hazards as well as checking for rotten stairs.
