The beautiful rural village of Effingham is situated in the Borough of Guildford, in Surrey. Its neighbours include Cobham, Dorking, Bookham and Horsley. Effingham is known for its large common, generous sports park, St Teresa’s School and The Howard of Effingham School. In Effingham, about half the housing scales slopes south of the A246.
The village was founded by the church as a spring line settlement at the foot of the North Downs. The Street and Church Street, two parallel roads, reflect the settlement by their steep gradients. At the bottom wells exist, whereas towards the top, layers of permeable topsoil underlain with chalk and limestone prevent reaching water. Although Effingham is a beautiful and tranquil village; the properties are still prone to the horror of damp.
