What's it like to live in Pixham?
We think we're lucky to be within walking distance of Dorking town centre (about 20 mins), and on the edge of a lot of beautiful countryside including the famous Box Hill (about 25 min trek to the viewpoint if you're fit!). It's also an easy stroll to Denbies Wine Estate
If you want to travel further afield Metrobus service 21 Epsom to Crawley runs down Pixham Lane (timetable - see below). For rail travel, you can catch trains to London Victoria and Waterloo, or Horsham at Dorking Main station which is a short walk away. Services to Reigate Redhill and Gatwick, or Guildford can be found at Dorking Deepdene station, which is also close by.
We have a community centre at Old Pixham School (managed by a C.I.C. - independent of the PRA) where the PRA run monthly quiz nights, occasional pop-up pubs and other events. The school is also host to Shiny Side Down Films who run monthly showings of a range of fascinating films of various genres during the winter months.

CRANFOLD PHYSIO AT OLD PIXHAM SCHOOL
Do you have aches and pains, arthritis? a bad back or hip?
The Chartered Physios at Cranfold Physical Therapy Centre run Clinical Classes in Pixham for people who wish to work on their physical health and wellbeing, but have existing conditions that make them unsure about the safest and most effective way to improve, without causing themselves damage. Our patients are all screened initially by an experienced physiotherapist to establish their individual goals, learn their medical history, and to help them plan a rehabilitation pathway back to optimal fitness.

THE PIXHAM ARTISTS
As a group of friends, we have painted in the Pixham Scout Hut for the last 15 years over the winter months. Pixham Village is a beautiful setting for a painting group, at the foot of Boxhill with many picturesque views on the doorstep - with the bonus of an active, friendly Village Community.
We exhibit regularly with local art societies holding our own exhibitions at Denbies most years and we have built up a reputation for excellent, affordable art, in all mediums and styles, in a rich variety of subjects. - see more here
DO YOU WORK FROM HOME?
Working from home has lots of benefits including a very short commute, more control over your working day, and peace and quiet. However, it can also be a lonely and isolating experience when we know that social interaction is critical to our wellbeing. If you're interested in connecting with other Pixham professionals who work from home, please email Alison Reid at who is keen to create opportunities for Pixham work-from-homers to get together.
