Places of Interest

There are a number of interesting places to visit within Compton itself. These  are independently listed within this section.

 

The listed buildings are throughout the Village and the list can be found HERE.

Compton has a wealth of history which is evident from it's buildings although some of the places of interest are less obvious as they are tucked away from the main street.

 

The Ice House, is in the woods at the back of Westbury Manor. It is thought to have been the 'Victorian fridge' for Eastbury Manor, although it is also noted that it could have been a lime kiln.

 

The remains of a Roman Villa were discovered by Mary Watts whilst gardening (at her home, Limnerslease). The remains were uncovered and photographed, but have since been turfed over and are part of a private garden.

 

Many of the houses tell a story, with some dating back to 16th Century. More about the residential properties can be found on 'Past & Present'.

 

Surrey has a good deal to offer in the way of beautiful countryside and many interesting Heritage and National Trust Sites.
