Alfold is a village in south west Surrey situated on the Surrey/Sussex border with a population of around 1050. The village is set in an area of remote rural wooded countryside with many footpaths, tracks and bridleways through Forestry Commission land and along the Wey and Arun Canal. The St Nicholas church in the centre of the village is one of the oldest in the area, some records claiming its existence as long ago as 1100. Adjacent to the church are the village stocks, recently renovated and considered by English Heritage to be an example of one of the oldest stocks remaining in the country. The village benefits from three pubs and a village shop, a recently renovated Village Hall, Sports Ground with two football pitches, cricket pitch and tennis courts.
