Tree surgeons on site

Tree surgeons will be working in Charter Quay on Thursday 22nd February to prune the estate's trees. Expect a little noise and some mess during their visit.

Broadband conversation

Broadband supplier Hyperoptic will be at Charter Quay on Thursday 15th February, between 5pm and 8pm to meet residents and talk about their latest broadband offers.

The Hyperoptic service has proven to be reliable. However, some residents have noticed a (sometimes substantial) reduction in connection speed compared to when the service was first installed. We therefore suggest you check the speed of your connection. If you're getting 50% or less of your contract speed, there is probably little point in upgrading the service and you may wish to try an alternative provider.

Check your broadband speed here and if you have time, please share the results with us.

Charter Quay moorings history

The history of Kingston is a history of boats and boat builders. With a bit of imagination, you can almost see Kingston Museum’s 900AD log canoe being used to explore the inlets and reed beds of the Hogsmill river. The archaeological dig preceding the Charter Quay building works discovered history laid upon history, and all of it bound one way or another to boats. Turks, a local boat builder and operator, have been crafting vessels since Kingston was established as a town in the 12th century.

Jerome K. Jerome, the Victorian travel writer, wrote his novel ‘Three Men in a Boat’ in the Druid’s Head, one of Kingston's oldest pubs situated on the border of Charter Quay. He hired his wooden camping skiff from Turks and spent his 1888 honeymoon rowing his new wife from Kingston to Oxford as research for the book.
