OUTWOOD IN SURREY "The Village with the Mill"
There are 18 conservation areas in Tandridge District. Conservation areas are defined as "areas of special architectural or historic interest, the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance". The special character of the village of Outwood, centred around Outwood Common and the windmill, resulted in a large area of the village being designated as a Conservation Area in 1990. At 34.3 hectares (nearly 85 acres), the Outwood Conservation Area is the largest in Tandridge, and its designation should help to ensure that the character and historical significance of the 'core' of the village is protected in future years.
More information on Conservation Areas can be found here on the Tandridge District Council website. Maps showing their location and extent can be seen at the TDC Offices during normal office hours.
