An urban and suburban area of equal contribution [to Chaldon] between the two merged areas [Caterham and Woldingham] finally became a civil parish after the area's abolition [in 1974]. Whyteleafe already had its own railway station and church; it was identifiable as a village throughout the district's duration.
