Church path to St Mary Magdalene, Cobham
Church path to St Mary Magdalene, Cobham
The church of St Mary Magdalene in Cobham is renowned as having the finest collection of brasses in the country. This view is from the church porch, looking down the path to The Street which is the main street through the village of Cobham. The half-timbered building on the left is the famous Leather Bottle pub. It was built in 1629, during the reign of Charles I, and got its name when a leather bottle containing gold sovereigns was found there in 1720. Charles Dickens knew the area well and actually stayed in Room Six. The Leather Bottle is featured in 'The Pickwick Papers'
