Latest Publication - Available Now
One of the Cobham Heritage Trust’s key aims has been to encourage local residents to search out, explore and treasure their local environment and heritage.
With this in mind we began publishing a local walk in each of our quarterly Cobham Heritage Membership Magazines, to help our readers and residents to make the most of their local area.
Due to popular request, we have now updated each of these walks and are publishing them together for the first time in one volume, available now to all.
Softback with 65 pages - Book size A5
Authors: Sally Ollett & Sue Prentice
This new book is available direct from Cobham Heritage through the Cobham Heritage Shop website for £7 plus £2 P&P and from the Cobham Bookshop for £8.99.
The Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust are
delighted to announce the publication of
COBHAM REMEMBERS World War II
and its impact on a Surrey Village
Following the success of the "Cobham Remembers, the Great War and its impact on a Surrey Village", we are pleased to announce the publication of its companion book "Cobham Remembers World War II and its impact on a Surrey Village". This follows a similar format to the first book and has been expanded to almost 600 pages. The hardback book provides a nostalgic, poignant and insightful view of Cobham and the surrounding villages during World War II, with interesting anecdotes and rare photographs. This social history has been combined with a Roll of Honour recognising the local men who died in the service of their country.
After receiving their copy, one of our recent buyers said: "Having just received my copy of the book, I send you my appreciation and congratulations on an excellent job that you have done."
Copies can be ordered direct from Cobham Heritage at £19.00 per copy plus £3.50 postage & packing for one book and £7.50 postage & packing for up to 4 books. Postage & packing is free if collected from one of our Open Meetings. To order, please order and pay online through our online shop at shop.cobhamheritage.org.uk/.
The book is also available for £21.00 from:
The Cobham Bookshop, 12A Anyards Road, Cobham KT11 3JE and
Farrants, 15-19 High Street, Cobham, KT11 3DH.
This fascinating hardback book of almost 600 pages has been painstakingly researched by the authors Graeme S. R. Austin and David J. Cooke.
Cobham is fortunate to have the river Mole pass close to its High Street and the opportunity it provides to see wildlife close up, especially swans and ducks.
Feeding the ducks is an age-old pastime for families but recent research has concluded that feeding bread (especially in large quantities) is detrimental to the health of the wildfowl. The uneaten bread also affects the river because it goes mouldy and affects fish as well.
What do Ducks Really Like?
- special wild duck food pellets
- sweetcorn (canned, defrosted or fresh)
- lettuce torn into small pieces
- peas (defrosted, no need to cook)
- oats (rolled or instant)
Duck Food Now Available in Cobham
If you would like to feed the ducks but don’t have any of their favourite food, Cobham Heritage has partnered with the Princess Alice Hospice Charity to provide individual bags of nutritious duck food. The bags can be purchased at the Princess Alice Hospice Charity shop at 52 High Street (just a short walk, 50 metres away) for a £1 donation per bag.
We want families to enjoy the river and to feed the ducks but we would like to encourage everyone to feed them good nutritious food.
