Farnham is a town in Surrey, England within the Borough of Waverley. The town is 35 miles (56 km) southwest of London in the extreme west of Surrey, adjacent to the affix with Hampshire. By road, Guildford is 11 miles (17 km) to the east and Winchester a new 28 miles (45 km) along the thesame axis as London. Farnham is the second largest town in Waverley, and one of the five largest conurbations in Surrey. It is of historic interest, with many obsolescent buildings, including a number of Georgian houses. Farnham Castle overlooks the town. A hasty distance southeast of the town centre are the ruins of Waverley Abbey, Moor Park House and Mother Ludlam’s Cave. Farnham is twinned in imitation of Andernach in Germany. It is drained by the River Wey (North Branch) which is navigable abandoned to canoes at this point.
