Why are there no Georgian houses in Newdigate?

An interesting walk to hidden areas of Newdigate and a visit to the Mill Cottage Garden. The guides from Newdigate History Society were very knowledgeable and local historian John Calcutt created such a fascinating talk that it took us much longer than planned to get to the wonderful refreshments that crowned the evening.

Enthousiastic Society members commented:

“Having lived at Ewood for 32 years, I found this outing fascinating and learnt so much about the area. To finish the evening at the Surrey Oak was the icing on the cake.”

“Very interesting – could have done with torches! Fascinating hidden area of Surrey. Good historical/industrial information!”

“Wonderful homemade sausage rolls and Pimms (courtesy of the Richards, SHS members) at Ewood Stables!”

Enthousiastic SHS members thanked our specialist and praised her knowledge:

“Pamela has got the level of detail just right. I don’t need to know which sub-species of which latin name it is, I just like to know the common name.”

“I’ve lived in Surrey for many years but never visited the Sheepleas. I’ll certainly be coming back.”
