English: Hooley covers a small area of land and is a hamlet of Chipstead in Surrey, England. It lies in a "pass" which is the lowest crossing point of the North Downs for several kilometers in either direction. The London B & SC and the South Eastern Railway recognised this pass as the best route to Brighton and built rival railway lines through Hooley. Both lines go into the Merstham to the south. Even before these, an extension of the Surrey Iron Railway came through this pass. It was part of the former Banstead Urban District.
