Description:
Whyteleafe is a small town (pop 2200) in South East England, in the Surrey district of Tandridge. Four streets in Whyteleafe are just inside the southern edge of the London Borough of Croydon. Neighbouring villages and towns include Woldingham, Caterham, Coulsdon, Warlingham, and Kenley (in London Borough of Croydon). To the west are Kenley airfield, Kenley Common (City of London owned) Coxes Wood and Blize Wood. To the east are Riddlesdown, the Dobbin, and Marden Park. The parish church of St Luke dating from the mid-19th century lies within the Diocese of Southwark. The vicar is Gill Reeves, and a typical congregation on Sunday numbers around 30, as well as a choir of a half-dozen or so, churchwardens and sidesmen. The churchyard contains graves of airmen who died during WW2, stationed at RAF Kenley nearby.
