Overview

This Surrey village dates from Roman Times, which by Domesday Book (1086) was still a small settlement on the River Mole. The river was not navigable, but road, canal and railway encouraged the development of the three communities of Street Cobham, Church Cobham and Tilt Cobham. The story of a community of wide variety and one of the largest parishes in the country - from non-conformity to Utopia, from royal mistresses to philosophers, from stately homes to car manufacture.
