The village of Frensham is located within Surrey, England, by the A287 road, around 13 miles away from the popular town of Guildford.
There are a number of attractions located within the area, including Frensham Common a site owned by the National Trust and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, spanning around 1000 acres of land, the majority being heathland, coniferous land and mixed woodland. There are also two large ponds, built in the Middle Ages to provide fish. Other attractions include St. Mary’s Church, dedicated in 1239 after being moved from its previous location by the River Wey.
Popular legend is that Jesus visited Fowey as a child; therefore the town has become a haven for religious members for decades, with many of them visiting the Punches Cross, a cross that is used to commemorate the supposed visit of Christ whose name derived from Pontius Pilate.
