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!

RAILWAY BRIDGE CLOSURE, NEW POND ROAD

 

The Bridge over the railway on the B3000, at the end of New Pond Road near the Crematorium, will be closed for replacement from Monday 23rd April until Friday 13th July.  During this time, diversions are scheduled to be in place as follows.  These are only proposed at the moment, until finally agreed with Highways England and Surrey County Council, but are unlikely to change from this.

 

New Pond Road will be closed from the Furze Lane/Stakescorner Road junction to the Summers Road junction.

The diversions start from the approach to the southbound slip road to Compton on the A3 (possibly earlier on the northbound). Traffic is redirected via the A3, Milford and Godalming back to the Crematorium area.

The exception is HGV traffic, which will be redirected via the A3 slip road and the Priorsfield Road A3 crossing, back up to the Hog’s Back eastbound, thence via Farnham Road, Guildford gyratory and Portsmouth Road to the Crematorium area.

There will be no alternative diversion routes signposted, but the routes above are signposted from all approaches. Furze Lane will be signed “Unsuitable for diverted traffic”.  Stakescorner Road will be “For access only”.

Both routes are the same in the reverse direction, except that the HGV route takes the slip road from Farnham Road (westbound) directly onto the A3.

The diversion for cyclists, pedestrians and horse traffic is to be via Summers Road (which will be closed to vehicular traffic at the Crematorium end), Furze Lane, and Bourne Road.
