High Street, Lingfield, Surrey, RH7 6AB


Lying in the extreme south eastern corner of Surrey is the ancient parish of Lingfield known to be in existence at the time of the Domesday book, but for some reason not mentioned in it. 

A will made around 960 during the reign of King Edgar refers to certain lands in Lingfield and the advowson (patronage) of the church as part of a gift to the Abbey of Hyde, near Winchester.

It is from the 14th and 15th centuries that more detailed records of the parish really appeared as the great Wealden forest was being developed for agriculture and the iron industry, the latter just over the border in Sussex.
