Betchworth is a lovely rural village situated in Surrey at the foot of the North Downs, and midway between Reigate and Dorking. It is a village with its roots in History being mentioned in the Domesday Book, but very much in the 21st Century, being located within easy reach of London, Gatwick and the notorious M25.
The local church, St Michael's, was used as a set for the film Four Weddings and a Funeral and is currently awaiting the installation of a new Tickell organ,.
The village boasts a school, a pub, post office/village shop and a functioning blacksmith and is host to the annual Cowpie Rally, organised by Surrey Young Farmers.

Betchworth retains all the traditional features of a rural village. Its cornerstones are still the church, the school and of course the Dolphin Inn. Much of the land is owned by the Goulburn Estate and is still farmed, and a number of the houses still belong to the estate. There are just over 400 dwellings in the Parish with an adult population of some 850 persons.

Many of the features of this vibrant rural village are embodied into the pages of this village web site and it is hoped that you will soon discover that Betchworth is a friendly and lively village with a strong community spirit.
