Rowledge lies in the southwest corner of Surrey, some three miles south west of the town of Farnham.
The Ecclesiastical Parish of Rowledge is probably unique in that it straddles the Hampshire Border, with St James’ Church and the School being located in Hampshire. It was formed in 1869 from parts of Farnham, Frensham and Binsted (Hampshire) parishes and includes the hamlets of Holt Pound and Bucks Horn Oak in Hampshire.
The Civil Parish,covering the area within the County of Surrey, now forms part of the Farnham Ward of Wrecclesham and Rowledge (see Map Of Civil Parish).
The Village is bounded to the north by the Bourne Valley (an “Area of Strategic Visual Importance” or ASVI) and Wrecclesham and Boundstone/Upper Bourne; to the west by the Alice Holt Forest; to the east by open countryside and to the south by further open countryside designated as an “Area of Great Landscape Value” or AGLV (see Map Showing Land Classification).
