Great Bookham is the home of the two village's railway station ; Bookham railway station in Church Road.The villages are astride the A246, which is the non-motorway and direct route between the two towns. Once two distinct villages, the Bookhams have long been interconnected with residential roads that give the impression of one large village.The village is well known as the location of Polesden Lacey, a country house on the southern edge of the village, surrounded by more than 1000acre of grounds, now owned by the National Trust and open to the public.PetitionCurrently Royal Mail do not recognise the prefix of 'Great' or 'Little' on Bookham, meaning that residents addresses are incorrect when the information is created using postcodes.Royal Mail are willing to update their records to correct the village names, but local council Mole Valley and local MP Paul Beresford need to give permission for this.Great Bookham is in Surrey.
