The Parish

The parish of Chiddingfold includes the village of Chiddingfold and the hamlets of Ansteadbrook, High Street Green and Combe Common.  It is one of the largest parishes within the county of Surrey and is located in the borough of Waverley.  It borders the parishes of Haslemere, Witley, Hambledon, Dunsfold, Northchapel and Lurgashall, the latter two being in West Sussex and falling within the Chichester District.  The parish has a boundary with the South Downs National Park to the South.

The Parish is predominantly rural and most residents live in Chiddingfold village, which includes a Conservation Area and a number of Listed Buildings. The rural character is maintained in particular due to designations covering all or part of the area, including the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Ancient Woodlands and the Metropolitan Green Belt of London. Chiddingfold Forest, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, lies mostly within the parish boundary.


Chiddingfold is a thriving community with many active groups and organisations.

The Village Hall is run by a charity and is independent of the Parish Council, it can be hired for private use and hosts the Village Cinema as well as touring theatre productions.

In 2019 The Chiddingfold Good Neighbours  produced a Chiddingfold Information Booklet of local  services, activities, groups and businesses organised into sections.  The booklet gives an indication of the numerous and varied village activities you and your family can enjoy. It is intended for reference purposes and the information should be checked to confirm it is still accurate.
