Few little facts about Onslow-Village
Onslow Village is a suburb town in Surrey. The history of Onslow Village started with the formation of the Onslow Village Association and its aim to tackle the acute shortage of decent working class housing following the First World War.
The Onslow Village Association acquired 646 acres (just over one square mile) of land from Richard Onslow, 5th Earl of Onslow in 1920 for approximately one quarter of its market value at the time. The aim was to create a "Garden City" to be modelled on the ideas of Ebenezer Howard's Garden City Movement. Unfortunately due to a lack of funding the scheme never reached full completion.
Onslow never got its railway station, however it did eventually get its woodland: the Onslow arboretum, developed by Guildford Borough Council as a specialist collection of eighty tree species from around the world. The Onslow arboretum is positioned right next to the "Rec" with its own park, a large field, several tennis courts, toilets and a scout hut.
