Set in beautiful countryside, the village of West End is just a short distance from the town of Woking, Surrey. It has many open spaces in and around the village with the River Bourne running through it and adjoins Brentmoor Heath, which is a Local Nature Reserve. The village has a great sense of community spirit which is present in their annual village fete, held in June on the green and in September the West End & Windlesham Agricultural & Horticultural Show takes place.
History of West End
Originally the village was made up of little-farmed smallholding within the common land, until the mid-20th Century, after which the village grew sustainably and became a significant centre of nursery gardening. Records suggest that West End may have obtained its name because it was the west of Cobham.
Located in the centre of the village is Gordons School which was built in commemoration of Gordon of Khartoum and was the very first boys home founded by Queen Victoria in 1885. In 1990 the school was developed and has since become one of the most successful state schools in the country.
