The Rise and Fall of the English Switzerland - An Exhibition at Haslemere Museum

This highly entertaining exhibition describes a very colourful chapter in Hindhead’s history from 1880 - 1910. Based on original research by Dr Marion Dell, it illustrates: how treacherous Hindhead was once considered; the impact of the arrival of the railway through Haslemere: why eminent physicist, Professor Tyndall, christened Hindhead the ‘English Switzerland’; why Hindhead immediately became immensely fashionable, attracting celebrity writers of the day, including Conan Doyle and Bernard Shaw, and, finally, how Hindhead’s popularity led to its demise. A ‘must’ for anyone interested in local history!
