St Barnabas

For many years St Barnabas has been known as ‘The Church on the North Downs Way’ and one unusual feature is that the main door faces away from the road since it was designed to be entered from the Great House.

Dorking United Reformed Church

Dorking United Reformed Church was founded in 1662 by two clergymen who had been ejected from the Church of England because they refused to subscribe to the Act of Uniformity. It was the first ‘dissenting church’ in Dorking. The present building was constructed in 1834/5. It has a typical non conformist interior with a baroque balcony, good quality pews and some interesting marble memorial plaques.
