Wanborough, The Manor and The Great Barn In the Cistercian monks from Waverley Abbey near Farnham built a great barn in which to store the annual harvest of arable crops and sheep fleeces from Wanborough manor which the order controlled. The Cistercian system of recruiting lay brothers, who were men lacking the education to become fully fledged monks but who wanted the discipline of religious life, enabled large farming operations to be run efficiently and dependably for the order under the supervision of a bailiff. The Abbey secured the right to hold an annual fair at Wanborough for three days from August 23rd and also provided for a piepowder court 1 to settle trading and other offences. The Great Barn was constructed from huge oak timbers, much of which is still in place today. The original external covering was made of vertical boarding although today this has been replaced with weatherboarding. The building has been extended in more recent times with work undertaken in and the early 19th century. Alongside the barn is a granary which was built at the end of the 18th century, although its original position was in the front of the manor house.

History[ edit ] Neolithic flints have been found and there are several round barrows on the heaths; such as the Bee Garden in rolling Albury Bottom, a scheduled ancient monument  and the “Herestraet or Via Militaris” of the Chertsey Charters ran through Chobham parish. In Roman silver coins of Gratian and of the time of a Valentinian , and copper coins of a Theodosius , Honorius , and another Valentinian, a spear-head and a gold ring, were found near Chobham Park in the parish.
Chobham appears in Domesday Book as Cebeham held by Chertsey Abbey , as it was at the time of the conquest, with interests also acquired by the time of its survey, , by two minor Norman figures, possibly bishops, Corbelin and Odin. Its Domesday assets were: Its earliest parts date from about although there may have been an earlier church on the site. It is dedicated to St Lawrence, who was martyred in Rome in Until the 19th century almost entirely surrounded by Chobham Common , which was heathland of little agricultural value compared to its central fertile belt, the village was isolated.
During mediaeval times, Chobham remained part of the Chertsey Abbey estates. As across the whole hundred which he dominated, the power of the Abbot of Chertsey was considerable. Thus Chobham remained largely undeveloped during the Industrial Revolution and 20th century meanwhile Woking has grown into a large town on the South West Main Line. In the 19th century peat was cut from the soil all around the village, which provided a cheap and reliable fuel source for heat, smelting and cooking.

Flotation tyres had been fitted to the combine to minimise any damage to soils. Behind the University SIC is a public footpath wandering through farmland and a small woodland. If I’m not catching up on work that I should have already done long ago, I often like to spend the gap time taking a walk up the footpath.
The way was clear however, and the disinterested gaze of grazing horses was the only acknowledgement of my presence. It’s becoming more and more respected.

On the road I saw the sign for Greyfriars a lovely Voysey house a close friend of mine had lived in when we were children. Too much of a coincidence for me to drive on so I popped in.

The Kremlin have denied any complicity. Not for us the luxury of hot water. If it were cold, the kettle might be boiled and a little of it added to the freezing water in the sink — but kettles had to be boiled and that took gas, and gas cost money! With seven of us living in the old house, a wash in cold water was the norm. WEY LIFE “The rich man with a very large establishment will almost certainly declare in favour of electricity, which in his case will probably give the lowest working costs, while his less wealthy neighbour will most likely install air-gas or acetylene.

In the case of electric light the writer has never heard of this being done; male attention of some sort appears to be required, even if it is only such the bootboy can give. Gardeners can usually undertake the work quite successfully”.
