William Cobbett

 

Speaking of England again… A friend went to Farnham, to live and work as an Au Pair. She arrived there in january 2010 and told me some news about the weather, the daily life and how it was to visit London. Unlikely I’m going to write about a place she has visited in the city she is staying.

Farnham is a town in Surrey within the Borough of Waverley. The town is situated some 42 miles (67 km) southwest of London in the extreme west of Surrey, adjacent to the border with Hampshire. It is of historic interest, with many old buildings, including a number of Georgian houses. Farnham Castle overlooks the town. A short distance south-east of the town centre are the ruins of Waverley Abbey, Moor Park House and Mother Ludlam’s Cave.
The place she has visited is called The William Cobbett Pub, renamed after a radical MP, soldier, farmer, journalist and publisher, who was born in Farnham in 1763.
