Normandy Village is situated to the north and in the lea of the Hogs Back which is part of the Surrey Hills.
We are fortunate to have excellent road and rail links to London and other major towns and cities.
The village has its own station (Wanborough) with direct links to Guildford (6 minutes away) and Aldershot (10 minutes away). By changing trains at these stations London (Waterloo) is only a further 40 minutes away. Road links are just as good with easy access to the A31 and A3.
Normandy has a rural character with plenty of wildlife, in open fields and woodland even though it is only 4 miles from Guildford. If you like walking, running, cycling or horse riding in the countryside there are many footpaths and bridleways to explore.
There are many clubs and society's within the village covering a wide range of sports and leisure activity's, football, cricket, tennis, bowls, archery, rounders, just to mention a few.
The children are well catered for with an excellent primary school (Wyke) within the village also for their leisure we have play areas with swings, slides and other equipment.
We are a friendly and happy community and as you can see we have much to offer residents and visitors alike.
Welcome to Normandy Village.

Note: May I recommend a fantastic Social Community Website called "NextDoor" which is a great source of communication within Normandy.
Nextdoor is the best way to stay informed about what’s going on in your neighbourhood - whether it’s finding a last-minute babysitter, a lost cat, planning a local event, needing a good, local plumber or sharing safety tips.
There are so many ways our neighbours can help us, we just need an easier way to connect with them.
You can join for free and just need your postcode and email address.
Not every accident or incident is serious enough to call the Police …but it may have an overall impact on the safety of our village.
There are many incidents that happen every day around Normandy that go unreported. If they were, they may add up to a possible long term issue that needs to be addressed.
The NPC have set up this online incident log to record evidence that could be used to submit a request to the relevant authority to get something done. Because without any evidence nothing will be!
These incidents may be related to:
Traffic (road accidents, near misses, poor or aggressive driving, persistent bad parking that could be dangerous to pedestrians etc)
Crime (burglary, theft, warnings, unwanted doorstep visitors etc)
Anti-social behaviour (aggressive behaviour, casual litter, fly-tipping etc)
Other (property violations, broken playground equipment, damaged fencing, damaged trees etc)
Note that this is NOT an alternative process for reporting serious incidents to the Police, Guildford Borough Council etc - please contact them as you would normally do.
