  1. About Abinger Hammer

    Abinger Hammer is a village situated on the A25 between Dorking and Guildford in Surrey, England. It lies with the parish of Abinger which includes Abinger Common and Sutton Abinger. The village was once a very important centre of the wealden iron industry and this is commemorated by its most notable landmark, the clock which overhangs the main road. This portrays the figure of "Jack the Blacksmith", who strikes the hour with his hammer. The clock represents the iron industry and the role played by the county of Surrey in the industrial past. The River Tillingbourne flows through the village and forms a number of hammer ponds, once used to power forges and now to grow watercress. Brown trout swim in the stream, which is their natural habitat; the occasional larger rainbow trout can be sighted. These may have escaped from the fish farm further downstream towards Gomshall. The village is also home to the Michelin-starred Drakes on the Pond restaurant. Other neighbouring villages are Wotton and Gomshall. In summer the village green in Abinger is popular with locals and tourists who like to picnic on the grass whilst watching a game of cricket in surroundings which are quintessentially English.
