Friday Street

Friday Street is a hamlet on the lower slopes of Leith Hill in Surrey, England. It is set well off the main roads around a hammer pond in a wooded valley. It is just to the south of Wotton and the A25 running between Guildford to the west and Dorking to the east.

There are a few houses in this tiny hamlet and an historic inn that bears the name of Stephan Langton, Archbishop of Canterbury during the reign of King John and signatory of the Magna Carta and Martin Tupper, poet and antiquarian, wrote a biography of Stephan Langton in 1858 depicting his time in this area.

Friday Street also features as the title of a song on the album Heavy Soul by Surrey native Paul Weller.

In 1984 Friday Street was used as a location for the BBC Television series "The Tripods" based on the books by John Christopher, where, for the sake of the story it became the fictional future village of "Wherton."

Famous quotes containing the words street and/or friday:

    The question confronting the Church today is not any longer whether the man in the street can grasp a religious message, but how to employ the communications media so as to let him have the full impact of the Gospel message.
    Pope John Paul II (b. 1920)

    The dripping blood our only drink,
    The bloody flesh our only food:
    In spite of which we like to think
    That we are sound, substantial flesh and blood—
    Again, in spite of that, we call this Friday good.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
