  Modernism in South Farnham framed

South Farnham can also boast of properties with a modern design. 

2 Stoneyfields was designed by Farnham architect George Buzuk in 1968 in the Modernist style made famous by the Bauhaus architects such as Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier and shares many features in common with a well-known National Trust property in London designed by Erno Goldfinger.  The dramatic planes and geometrical angles formed by the exterior walls are reflected not only throughout the interior, but also in the garden design which has been laid out and maintained to complement the minimalist style of the striking architecture.


 Waverley Abbey ruins framed

Waverley Abbey was the very first monastery founded in Britain by the reforming Cistercian religious order. A small group of monks from France settled in this quiet spot by the River Wey in 1128, and Waverley soon became the springboard for Cistercian settlement in southern England. The impressive remains include the fine 13th century vaulted refectory or dining hall for the lay brothers, the Cistercians' labour force.
