Heritage Day 2017 leaflet front pageHeritage Day is a family fun day which is free to enter and occupies Cobham Church Street, St Andrew's Church and Church Yard, Church Gate House Gardens and the Leg O'Mutton Field.

There are over 90 varied stalls and attractions. The stalls give the public an opportunity to meet local charities, crafts and small businesses throughout the day and to discover interesting organisations and unusual items to buy. Some of the stalls offer delicious things to eat and drink, while others have games and children's items to buy.

We also have free entertainment and attractions throughout the day. These include the popular Maypole Dancing, Birds of Prey demonstration, Shetland Ponys, Juggling and Circus Skills, Punch & Judy, the Cobham Band and a live Jazz Band. Also, for a small charge there is the classic Bus rides.

This year we are very pleased to announce that Cedar House (opposite the Cobham Mill) will be open on Heritage Day. Tours will take place between 11am and 3:30pm. Visitors can walk to Cedar House or take the Chatterbus shuttle bus from the Leg O'Mutton field.

Two other major attractions on the Leg O'Mutton field are the Cobham Garden Club Autumn Show (1:30pm - 4pm) and the ever popular Classic & Vintage Car Gathering.

Are you an enthusiastic Gardener or Homecraft/Handicrafter? Why don't you enter one of the Autumn Show classes, there are special children's classes as well. You can visit the Garden Club website at for more details.

The Cobham Mill is the only working water mill in Surrey and will be open from 1pm to provide demonstrations of how corn was milled using the power of the river Mole.
