Compton is a pretty rural village positioned close to the Hogs Back Hill in the County of Surrey, and is home to just over nine hundred and sixty people. The village dates far back in time and there is evidence of a Bronze Age settlement nearby. A stroll around the village will reveal an impressive Norman church with Saxon origins that's dedicated to St Nicholas; inside the church visitors can see the oldest glass within a church in the UK, and there's also Roman tiles in the tower. The ancient track of the Pilgrims Way saw the Crusading Knights of St John visit here. Walkers will not be disappointed to discover footpaths which journey across attractive countryside, the North Downs Way and the stunning Surrey Hills. There is a charming mix of architecture within the village from ancient period houses and cottages, and 16th Century half timber framed houses. The main industry of the village has been linked with agriculture, although during the 18th and 19th Centuries Smugglers thrived in the area and hid their illegal contraband of rum and tobacco nearby. Although the Smugglers have gone, visitors today may still find the odd treasure within the antique shops, or a drop of rum in the two Inns, one of which dates back to the 16th century.
