Cranleigh is situated 10 miles from Guildford and is reputably the largest village in England, it lies east of the A281 which links Guildford with Horsham.
The town had its own railway station which opened in 1865, the line was however closed in 1965 by Dr Beeching, and was demolished shortly afterwards, there have been studies to see if it would be viable to revive the train services but this was deemed uneconomical.
The town is well served by a variety of shops, the oldest, largest and most well known is Manns which has been is business since 1887, but many large corporate companies have a presence in the town, such as Sainsburys, Boots, Marks and Spencer, WH Smith & Subway, the village has a number of locally owned businesses such as a bakery, butcher and fishmonger.
One of the most striking and imposing landmarks in the town is the brilliant white Rose Garden War Memorial which was erected in 1920.
Every year the Cranleigh & South Eastern Agricultural Society hold the Cranleigh Show and this is a very popular event in the Cranleigh calendar and has been in existence since 1946.
The Cranleigh Arts Centre offers a full programme of feature film screenings, theatre productions, live music, exhibitions and workshops + adult and childrens activities, the centre is a registered charity and is run by a team of volunteers.
The area does however suffer from limescale and Kevin Goody (UK Water Softeners) has been serving the residents of Cranleigh for over 19 years.
