A particularly pretty village with tile-hung and half-timbered houses, Newdigate is close to the Sussex border south of Dorking. A 14th century stained glass window in the church has the coat of arms of the Newdigate family who lived in Newdigate Place and founded the Newdigate prize at Oxford university. The church dates back to the 13th century, with 14th century stained glass in the north aisle windows, and a 15th century timber belfry.
