The Hautboy Inn at Ockham was built in 1864 by William, 1st Earl of Lovelace, Lord Lieutenant of Surrey and owner of Ockham Park where he lived with his wife Ada the computing pioneer. The materials used for the building were the famous Ockham bricks, baked in the brickyards off Long Reach, for which the Earl had received a medal at the Great Exhibition in 1851.
The Hautboy - the name is derived from the French hautbois,
the wooden instrument producing a high-pitched note, now known as the Oboe.
It has now been restored by Birchwood Homes to an award
winning residential property (Guildford Design Awards 2015)
