    Sandhurst – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. The Name Game
      ‘Hurst’ refers to a ‘wooded hill’ and the name was given to describe the original settlement that stood on a sandy wooded hill. The same onomatology can’t be applied to Geoff Hurst. He isn’t a wooded hill.
    2. Catherine & Arthur
      Sandhurst was once the site of a hunting lodge used by Prince Arthur, Elder brother of Henry VIII. Arthur must have ridden through the area on the way to meet his future bride for the first time, her name was Catherine of Aragon. The young Henry was only 10 at the time of the wedding (Arthur and Catherine both 15) and would of course go on to marry his brother’s widow.
    3. RMA
      The town is best known for its links to the famous Royal Military Academy which arrived in Sandhurst around the time of the Napoleonic Wars (1813), having previously stood in Marlow. The academy is even more notable for the number of royals that have attended, it is certainly a popular spot for young princes. Those to have trained here include Princes Harry and William, plus princes from Albania, Bahrain, Bhutan, Brunei, Greece, India, Jordan, Luxemburg, Spain, Saudi Arabia, Thailand and many more.
    4. Famous Students
      Other famous faces to have studied at Sandhurst are a little surprising such as sports commentator Murray Walker, James Blunt (singer), Will Carling (England rugby captain), David Croft (sitcom writer), Tim Peake (astronaut), Keith Floyd (TV chef), Ian Flemming (future spy and author of James Bond) and Sir Winston Churchill (politician).
    5. Forest Life
      Sandhurst was originally part of Windsor Forest which stretched for miles. The small village of Sandhurst was meagre scrubland and home to a few farmers who scratched a living (and ancient court records show a little bit of poaching), in the royal hunting forest.
    6. Roped In
      Sandhurst’s Tug of War team have been world champions on three separate occasions. The academy has played host to the championships which is open to locals to watch.
