The Walton Hop in Walton-Upon-Thames, Surrey was a teen disco started in 1958 and was one of the the first disco's in the UK. The Hop was situated only five miles from Savile's haunt the infamous Duncroft Aproved School.
In the 70's and 80's the Walton Hop was frequented by convicted paedophile and former Radio 1 DJ Chris Denning, and peadophiles Jonathan King and Tam Paton (director of the Bay City Rollers)
Sarah Nelson, an Edinburgh University researcher and government adviser on sex crimes, says Paton was involved with an abuse ring involving dozens of teenage boys. Paton was convicted of abusing two boys in 1982. It was Paton who first introduced Jonathan King to the Hop - they met when Jonathan was invited to produce the Rollers' debut single, Keep On Dancing.) Chris Denning, the former Radio 1 DJ, was another Hop regular - he has a string of child sex convictions, is currently in jail in Prague, and was friendly with King and Paton.
The Walton Hop achieved notoriety as the venue where Jonathan King preyed upon under-age boys. Jimmy Pursey, the lead singer of Sham 69, was one of the Hop's most regular teenage attendees.

Who lives close to the Walton Hop well Max Clifford for one lives in Walton-Upon-Thames and suspect Cliff Richard lived about two miles down the road in Weybridge,
Multi millionaire Max Clifford is due to stand trial for sex crimes against girls and his best friend Jewish multi millionaire Steve Less owns Secrets chain of all naked lap dancing clubs. At Secrets young girls high on cocaine perform naked for men and it is claimed Secrets clubs are used by M15 as a honey trap
In a strange twist to the tale Stephen Less engaged his lawyers Garstangs for ex spy and child abuse whistle blower and former Duncroft girl Andrea Davison after the police raided her home. It was Garstangs who conspired with the Prosecution to set-up Andrea and have her silenced. We asked Andrea about the the Walton Hop, Less and Clifford " I heard about the Walton Hop when I was at Duncroft but I did not go myself, as for Max Clifford he is Steve Less's best friend. It become really clear to me that Steve's Solicitor Richard Cornthwaite of Garstangs and Steve intended to silence me"

I asked how she met Stephen Less "Steve Less buys up journalists to get good publicity and I met him through my friend, journalist Pete Sawyer, when we were working together on a documentary about Lap dancing clubs called Lap Dance Wars "
I was in Miami with Steve Less, his German Girlfriend Claudia and journalist Pete Sawyer where we met Michael J Peters the owner of a chain of Clubs in America. We were talking about producing a series of programs called Dancers at the time.

"It was naive of me to trust Steve Less to choose my solicitors if I had not done so I would not be a penniless refugee in South America. Recently I tested him out by asking him to help with my legal fees, so I can appeal the wrongful conviction. And although he knows he is directly responsible for my situation this multi millionaire who claimed to be my friend refused to help me. That says it all!"
|Claudia Girlfriend of Steve Less with Andrea Davison|
"Max Clifford also refused to help me expose elite paedophiles or contribute to my defence fund. Less and Clifford are definitely involved in something and I was not surprised when Clifford was charged. All these aging men were part of the "in crowd" in the popular music industry. So many of the so called stars are known to have groomed and abused young girls and boys with impunity. All these old men are connected to each other, and connected to the 60's 70's 80's 90's pop culture and organised crime in London."
"People go to Clifford with Scandal involving the stars and it is by this method Clifford has managed to protect a large number of Celebrity Paedophiles who are his friends." read more about Max Clifford from a lady who wished she had never met him
Walton Hop child abuse survivor Kirk writes
" In fact it was I that helped launch Operation Arundel after disclosing rather stupidly to Max Clifford. If you are interested I did not approach Max Clifford Associates (MCA) for financial gain more to enquire if any other boys (now adults) had approached him with regard Jonathan Kings one time promoter at Bell Records and co founder of Kings UK Record label the ex BBC radio One DJ Chris Denning (currently in custody in Wandsworth prison). However that was not the main reason for approaching MCA. 95% of my abuse took place in Weybridge and Walton on Thames and Mr. Clifford lives on the border of those two towns, because of his position in the PR world I assumed that he must of known that certain celebrities were attending one teen disco in Walton on Thames, the Walton Hop also known as the Walton Playhouse.
I had heard by way of Radio Five Live that Denning had been arrested in the Czech Republic for running a paedophile ring, coupled with the arrest of Gary Glitter for downloading Photographic Evidence of a Sexual Assault on a Child my mid went into overdrive, unfortunately Glitters arrest happened just after I had started a three year course at university. On hearing of Glitters arrest the first thing I thought of was Bell records, the second was of my original abuser Chris Denning. Unbeknown to me at the time, my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder began to manifest itself by way of nightmares, triggers and flashbacks, I succeeded in smothering these manifestations by focusing on my studies but that was to prove very difficult with the amount of paedophilia that was in the media at the time. There was the North Wales Children’s Home scandal and the ensuing Waterhouse Report, the disappearance of Sarah Payne and the commencement of the News of The Worlds name and shame campaign, trying to escape reports of paedophilic linked articles etc was neigh on impossible it seemed that the press was reaching saturation point with regards sexual crimes against children.
However I persevered with my studies but it was just prior to my final year exams I read an interview that Denning had given to The Guardian journalist Kate Connelly whilst in Pankrac prison. I was shocked and disturbed at Denning’s complete denial of any wrongdoing but I now recognise this as a typical trait of the true paedophile. The pressure was now on me to disclose the information I had kept secret for over thirty years, unfortunately I suffered a mental and physical breakdown forcing me to miss my final year exams. It was because of this that I decided to disclose. I felt that my past systematic abuse by Denning, King, Rob Randall and others was still acutely affecting me, my dream of becoming an archaeologist had been destroyed, and I thought enough is enough.
The Guardian article can be found here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/g2/story/0,3604,297548,00.html
As I have said I approached Max Clifford by email, not naming King only naming Denning and The Walton Hop they contacted me the following day and asked if I had any photographic evidence of which I did not. I was told “no photographic evidence, no go”. (Was Clifford pleased that Kirk did not have photographic evidence of the abuse?) (how many kids have photographs of their abusers abusing them?)
It was at that point that I decided to go to the National Criminal Intelligence Service (NCIS) as they had assisted the Czech authorities in the arrest of Denning.
When I met Denning in 1970 he was working for the Bell Record label (after being sacked by the BBC for remarks he made on air with regard to young teenage boys) as promotions manager. Bell was perhaps one of the most successful record labels of the early seventies with artists such as Eddison Lighthouse, David Cassidy with and without The Partridge Family, Tony Orlando and Dawn, together with Gary Glitter, The Bay City Rollers with their sex offender manager Tam Paton and one Jonathan King who recorded under numerous guises such as The Piglets (“Johnny Reggae”) and Shag (“Loop de Love”). King also acted as house producer for the Bay City rollers first hit "Keep On Dancing". I would appear that none of the media have picked up this link pointing towards a London based music industry paedophile ring.
The list of celebrities attending the Hop was impressive for the early seventies. Chris Denning and Jonathan king were indeed regular visitors, Denning lived just down the road on Oatlands Drive which was the main road link from Weybridge to Walton on Thames. Others that attended were Tam Paton the ex manager of the Bay City Rollers who has a conviction for sex with an underage boy. The Bay City Rollers were also visitors to the Walton Hop. However these were not the only now convicted paedophiles that attended. I have mentioned Rob Randall, he was a music journalist of national repute, and he was also a part time DJ that had residency at both the Walton Hop and Tolworth bowling alley. Randall was convicted in 2002 for sex with an underage boy. I was to appear as a primary prosecution witness at Kingston crown court against Randall. But on the advice of his defence team Randall pleaded guilty to a more recent sexual assault so as to keep me from the witness box linking Randall to his friends Denning, King and the Walton Hop.

I've been very involved with helping abuse and rape survivors for about the last 20 years, after finally getting help myself !
I've been to Survivor weekend workshop / retreats, and conducted group sessions where I've met people abused by the people involved with the notorious Walton Hop, and Saville's name just kept coming up (along with others who are still around - not for long hopefully )
I have a good survivor friend that has a book ready for publication that exposes the Walton Hop pedophiles, not just those already convicted, but many more new names.
...The Walton Hop, when a quick finger up Uncle Jim guaranteed you a ride around the block in his white Roller, things were all so simple then
BBC DJ Chris Denning. The 71-year-old who was one of the first BBC Radio One DJs...
...Denning was part of a group of men, including former BBC radio DJ Jonathan King - jailed for seven years in 2001 after being convicted of a string of sex offences against young boys - who preyed on young boys at the Walton Hop, a '70s teenage disco.
The Walton Hop was a teen disco started by Deniz Corday in 1958. It is reputed to have been the first disco in the UK. During the 1970s and 1980s, it was frequented by now-convicted child sex offender Tam Paton (manager of the Bay City Rollers).
Denning said the age of consent should be lowered, adding "the average age of consent across the 27 countries [of the EU] is 15 and several members even set the age at just 14".
He said some "elderly men" in Britain lived in fear of being exposed as paedophiles for "relationships" they had had with boys decades ago.
Bell Records in London was headed by Dick Leahy. Bell had signed to them The Bay City Rollers, The Partridge Family with David Cassidy, Gary Glitter and The Piglets. The promotion manager was Chris Denning a now convicted paedophile.
He had a roster of artists including convicted paedophile Gary Glitter, Tam Paton, The Bay City Rollers manager was convicted of sexual assault of an under age boy, Derek Longmuir of The Bay City Rollers has a conviction for child pornography.
Jonathan King aka The Piglets is currently serving a seven year sentence for serious sexual assault on boys under the age of consent another man Robert Randall Hay - Dangerfield a freelance music journalist and part time disc jockey was convicted of assaulting an underage boy all of those mentioned above all have another thing in common other than Bell Records and Chris Denning, they all attended The Walton Hop disco, managed by Deniz Corday.
The pedophile supporters
King, Denning and Clifford are supported by a group of Jimmy Savile supporters led by Anna Racoon whos real name is Susan Nundy. A former Duncroft girl who sold her soul to the VIP abusers and has worked for the every since. And Barbara Hewson barrister who believes the age of consent should be lowered and that pedophiles are being persecuted. http://www.sott.net/article/264564-Psychopath-barrister-Barbara-Hewson-defends-pedophile-Jimmy-Savile-sez-age-of-consent-for-sex-should-be-13-to-end-persecution-of-old-men
a fellow apprentice came from a place called Walton in Surrey...in the 70`s
they had a big disco/youth club there called the "Walton Hop"and one of the DJ`s for this was none other than Jonathan King who then was sort of a novelty record maker come music producer....that fellow apprentice told me
then it was well know King liked "teenage boys"...now that was something like 25 years BEFORE he was exposed and jailed.
I think there is a lot more to be dug up about this one. Surrey Police have been sitting on this one for decades.
maxclifford.com/current-clients-testmonials/sportsleisure/Stephen Less is an entrepreneur in both the Leisure and Property Industry. ... within the last 40 years including Secrets, London's biggest table dancing chain. ... cocktail bar which then turns into a table dancing club later on in the evening.

TRIAL DATE SET FOR MAX CLIFFORD
Clifford has strenuously denied the allegations
The trial date for celebrity publicist Max Clifford has been set for March 4 next year.The 70-year-old, who did not attend the hearing at Southwark Crown Court, faces 11 charges of indecent assault on seven teenage girls.
He is accused of committing the offences between 1966 and 1985, when the girls were aged between 14 and 19.
Clifford pleaded not guilty to all 11 charges last month.
He has previously vowed to clear his name and labeled the allegations against him "a load of nonsense". he said.
"All I know is up until the Jimmy Savile situation, no one ever said anything about me at all.
"What I've got to do now is to prove that these allegations are totally without foundation, which I know they are."
Clifford, from Hersham, Surrey, was charged in April after being arrested in December as part of Operation Yewtree, the national police inquiry sparked by claims of abuse against Savile.
Maybe Max needs a better Spin Dr than himself to get him out of this one!
