Bramley is a pretty village situated in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and boasts a number of heritage features. Whilst there's no longer an operating rail station in the village, the original level crossing gates have been carefully restored. Snowdenham Lane in the village was the filming location for the film 'The Holiday', starring Cameron Diaz and Jude Law.
Bramley Church dates from the 12th century and is dedicated to the Holy Trinity. The tower, the south transept and the chancel are later additions from the 13th century. In 1676 boundary walls were constructed and the church's burial ground was licensed, and the church became its own ecclesiastical parish in 1847.
By the 18th century the village's road became part of the turnpike road from Guildford to Arundel and the milestone still exists in Birtley Road. In the 1770s, a bridge and causeway were built and the river was diverted from its original course to align with the new bridge. Most of the village's residents would have been involved in agriculture, purchasing The Nunnery in 1735 but this was sold a century later when many of the villagers had to go to Hambledon Workhouse.
The canal connecting Guildford to West Sussex and running by Bramley opened in 1816. James Stanton became the Superintendent of the canal in 1819; the canal closed in 1871 but Stanton's Cottage on the wharf remains. The Earl of Egremont diverted water from the Bramley millpond to improve the canal's water supply, forming the boundary between the school and the cemetry. He also redirected the lane to the mill, which is now Park Drive.
Renowned garden designer, Gertrude Jekyll, grew up in Bramley House which was leased from the Earl of Egremont's nephew. She retained an interest in the area and her long time friend, architect Edwin Lutyens who led the Arts & Crafts era, designed Grade II listed Millmead House for Jekyll in 1904, where she created the garden.
Today, Bramley is home to a range of local shops and stores including a greengrocers, butchers, florist, pharmacy, post office, cafe, restaurant and two public houses, the Jolly Farmer and the Wheatsheaf. There is also a golf course and the Bramley Cricket Club on Gosden Common, the first cricket ground to host an all women's cricket match in 1745.
