Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dunsfold is a village in the Waverley district of the county of Surrey, England, 8.7 miles (14 kilometres) south of Guildford. The census area Chiddingfold and Dunsfold has a population of 3,812.The village's name was recorded as Duntesfaude in 1259, Duntesfaud in 1272 and Duntesfalde in 1291, apparently meaning Dunt's fold. Alternatively it may be derived from the Old English dun (hill, cf. down) and fold (enclosure) - folding or enclosing being a way of moving sheep around the land to graze off crops remains previously harvested. It is a practice still followed on some of the farmland around the village. There are some prize-winning Aberdeen Angus cattle farmed here but the last dairy herd has now closed.show more
