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.

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.
