Situated in the extreme west of Surrey, within a short distance of the Hampshire border, the parish of Normandy includes Wyke, Christmas Pie, Willey Green, Pinewood and Flexford. 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.
In spite of increasing residential development, this district still remains largely rural in character with agriculture and its associated undertakings as the principal local industry. There are an increasing number of residents finding their employment in Aldershot and Guildford, for which a regular bus service takes about 20 minutes to either town. Some residents commute to London either by rail or road, this taking about 50 minutes. Trains from Wanborough Station (located within the village) connect to Ash and Guildford.
Modern development is strictly controlled by the local authority in order to maintain the very attractive natural amenities and to ensure the protection of the Metropolitan Green Belt. The southern part of the parish lies within a mile of the Hogs Back on the North Downs. The northern part undulates amidst woodlands and commons with its natural charm.
We are a friendly and happy community and as you can see we have much to offer residents and visitors alike.
