History

Caption for Farnham, The Spinning Wheel 1913

In the main street of The Borough, and facing on to Castle Street as it runs up to the south side of the castle, this early 17th-century, half-timbered building with its complex pattern of quatrefoils and three oriel windows would seem to provide ideal accommodation for an antiques business. No doubt the veteran motorcycle parked on its stand outside would certainly, these days, fetch a considerable sum if offered for sale inside this establishment.

St Christopher School

Hi my name is Noreen and I lived in Farnham for quite a few years. I was actually born in Ash. As you go past the library, from the town centre, there used to be a private school called St Christopher, where I worked for a good few years. I started as washer up but progressed to main chef. Sadly the school closed in 1999. I had many happy memories of Farnham and working there.
