Surrey is a county in southeast England. The largest town in Surrey is Guildford. With 22.4% coverage, it is the most wooded county in England, and notable outdoor spaces include Box Hill; Leith Hill, which has the highest elevation in the county; conservation areas Frensham Common and Puttenham & Crooksbury Commons; and the North Downs Way, a long-distance path running from Farnham to Dover. Since the nineteenth-century, Surrey’s development has been tied to London, as the coming of the railways made it a popular home for commuters to the present day. A few prevalent writers tied to Surrey include Robert Browning, who was born in Camberwell (then part of Surrey); George Meredith, who lived at Box Hill; and Lewis Carroll, who wrote Through the Looking-Glass at his family’s house in Guildford and is buried in the town.
