Working with Waverley to keep the Park a beautiful place for all to enjoy

FoFP Logo

The Friends of Farnham Park are a group of like-minded people who appreciate the simple pleasures of Farnham Park and who want everybody to be able to continue to enjoy them into the future.

We liaise closely with, and support, the Waverley Countryside Management team in preserving the character of this wonderful local amenity.

Many of our activities are open to everybody and most are free. They include:

Farnham Park is a unique place

Grade II Listed Historic Deer Park - one of the few still in the context of its original castle and associated buildings, which comprise a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

Evidence of occupation from the Middle Stone Age and the Roman occupation.

Important site for medieval 'ridge and furrow' field systems.
