Did you know?

Industrial age
Gomshall grew with the development of local industries, with the River Tillingbourne powering Gomshall Mill and its like. Many of the industries survived into the twentieth century, including leather tanning, watercress growing and corn milling.

View from the Trust
The National Trusts Netley Park lies on the slopes of the North Downs. Netley House and, while its grounds arent open to the public, there are 211 acres of woodland to explore, with great views along the way.

Good neighbours
With the likes of Albury, Shere, Abinger Hammer and Wotton on the same road and river, there are many easily accessible rambles through the surrounding fields. In fact, Albury to Wotton is only about a six mile walk for those looking for a bracing stroll and a few refreshing drinks along the way.

Back in time
The folk at Coach House Antiques centre have been buying and selling furniture for over 20 years and its a treasure trove of both old and new. They have a restoring service for items in need of a little tender loving care.

While youre there...

...Tillings Caf, which took up the space vacated by the Black Horse pub and has proven a popular addition. Above it, youll find the Bourneside Gallery.

Eat at...
Gomshall Mill (01483 203060) once the heart of industry, now a hearty pub.

Drink at...
The Compasses Inn (01483 202506) is a friendly pub, which recently calmly dealt with a wayward motorist driving through the side of the pub with the tongue in cheek sign: open for business as usual drive through service not available.

Stay at...
The privately owned Hurtwood Inn hotel (01306 730851) in nearby Peaslake.

Move there for...
And get: An individual, four-bedroom chalet style detached family home.

Famous neighbours?
Answers on a postcard.

Getting there...
The A25 passes directly through the village centre and it is served by its own station, which is on the Guildford line.
