Gomshall is a small village close to the North Downs Way, situated on the A25 road between Dorking and Guildford. The River Tillingbourne flows through the village, including the most significant building in the village – Gomshall Mill, which dates from the 17th century. It is now a riverside pub and restaurant, where customers can view the river flowing through the mill. It was a flour mill, powered by the River Tillingbourne and from 1752 until 1806, was owned by the Harris family.

In the 1950s, Gomshall was famous for its watercress teas. The watercress was grown locally in the village. Gomshall Mill attracted many visitors on a Sunday, not only to enjoy the afternoon teas, but also to browse in the gift and antique shop.

A short distance from Gomshall Mill, is the Compasses Inn, another popular pub with a riverside garden.

About The Photographer

Alison Avery

I enjoy visiting different parts of England and Wales and capturing the beauty of our countryside, coast and villages. Many of the places that I have recorded, are where I had happy family holidays with my mother, husband and son. I hope that you enjoy looking at the photos of beautiful England on my website.
