Where to find the Archive and Library:

The Society Archive is located at the Stationmasters’ House, Station Approach, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT22 7SQ.

The Stationmasters' House is part of the up side station buildings at Leatherhead. As you look at the station buildings, from the roadway, the left hand side is the Stationmasters' House.

Leatherhead Station is served by frequent trains run by Southern Railway (London Victoria to Horsham) and South Western Railway (London Waterloo to Dorking and London Waterloo to Guildford via Epsom). These services also provide good connections via Clapham junction.

Leatherhead Station is a short distance by car from the A245 and M25 Junction 9. The station has a large Pay and Display car park (Please do not use the Wates car park).
