The Grade II* listed Pixham Church was completed in 1901 and was designed by the acclaimed architect Edwin Lutyens. Pixham Mill was an important site of industry in the village during the mid-19th century and much of the attractive Grade II listed mill complex still stands in the village. Pixham was also the home of revered writer Daniel DeFoe author of Robinson Crusoe and Moll Flanders and widely considered to be the first novelist.Pixham lies within Dorking another area with an impressive cultural heritage which belies its small size. The mid-1920s art deco Dorking Halls sits at the heart of the town and composer Ralph Vaughan Williams staged Bach’s St Matthew’s Passion here in 1931. Just half-a-mile away lies Dorking Museum & Heritage Centre which contains some fantastic paintings and vintage photographs of the area as well as some more esoteric exhibitions.Whatever the reason for a visit The Watermill Inn is a beautiful and historic setting for enjoying delectable traditional pub food including seasonal specials and relaxed Sunday lunches.
