Few little facts about Chobham
Chobham, Surrey is a village in NW Surrey. The River Bourne runs through the village and floods it occasionally. Chobham appears in Domesday Book as Cebeham. It was held by Chertsey Abbey.
Chobham is probably most famous for the tank factory that was once carved out of Chobham Common and created Chobham armour. However, there are also the reputed "treacle mines" (where it is said soldiers buried their treacle tins before going off to the Crimean war). Queen Victoria visited their camp. Chobham & District Rifle Club is celebrating its centenary in 2009. Throughout it's 100 years of shooting the Club actively enters teams and individuals in County and National Club league competitions and all members are encouraged to shoot competitively.
Today Chobham is one of the fastest growing areas in Surrey.
