Compton is a charming village, that is well positioned for Guildford and Godalming, is close to the A3 to London and the south coast and is only 45 minutes to London on the train (from Farncombe). Compton has retained much of its character, it has two conservation areas, is in Surrey Hills  AONB and is within Green Belt. There are 31 listed buildings including an ancient 10th Century Church (St Nicholas) an English Heritage cemetery (Watts Cemetery) and is the only village in the UK with a National Art Gallery dedicated to a single Artist.

The current population is approximately 1000 and there are less than 400 properties. The village has an excellent Public House (the Withies Inn), a very popular Thai restaurant (Lemongrass at what was the Harrow) and a number of facilities for hire as well as an eclectic mix of small shops.

We are so lucky to have these very special venues for hire in (or near) Compton.

 

The Village Hall

Compton Club

Watts Gallery / Limnerslease

Pucks Oak Barn

Loseley Park

Whether it's private party, a corporate event, a theatre production or a special occasion such as a wedding, Compton has everything you need, in one place.

There are four very special venues for hire. The Village Hall has a great deal of character and even boasts its own stage with professional sound and lighting. The bright and airy rooms at the Compton Club overlook the Village Green and both the Hall and the Club can cater for groups of most sizes. For smaller meetings, the Village Hall has a separate meeting room and Puck's Oak Barn provides a character setting for small to medium sized events. If you are looking for something different, you might consider Watts Gallery or Limnerslease, the home of the Victorian Artists, George and Mary Watts.

 

Just outside the village is the Loseley Park Estate, which has been host to many a wedding and has provided a perfect setting for a number of British films. St. Nicholas Church is no stranger to the film world either and even Watts Chapel, once, found itself transformed into a 1920's nightclub at the hands of one location manager!  Both the Harrow and the Withies can cater for parties of all sizes and Compton has excellent professional caterers and musicians. Those wishing to stay may need to look a little further afield, but for local events, can enquire about hiring the village's very own mini-bus!

Music at Compton Club

 

A club member who uses the name of HANK LEE TRAVIS has formed a band which plays country and western style music with slow ballads thrown in.  He is booked to play at the Club on Friday 22nd January from 8pm to 11pm, and again on Friday 26th February and Friday 18th March.  His melodious music is well worth hearing so do pop in to listen to him and enjoy the sound.

Compton bus service under threat

 

After more than 40 years of service, the Compton stretch of the 46 bus service is under threat. The 46 is among a number of services that may be axed following a review of bus routes across Surrey.

 

Compton Parish Council is opposed to the proposed cut to this service, which it believes would have a serious impact on local businesses, residents and visitors who rely on it to access work, local shops and other facilities.

 

You can have your say by taking part in an online questionnaire (http://surreycc.gov.uk/transportreview)

Views can also be expressed by email: localtransportreview@surreycc.gov.uk.

Responses must be received by March 14.
