Farnham is a market town with many shops located along the main thoroughfare running through West Street, The Borough and East Street. The town has a significant number of independent retailers, some of which have been in business since the nineteenth century.
Farnham is claimed to have been settled by hunters from the stone age era, there is evidence of tools and prehistoric animal bones found together in deep gravel pits. The first known settlement, a collection of pit dwellings, was dated as being from around 7,000 years ago. The numbers of those living in the area continued to grow through the Bronze Age, evidence for this is the triple barrow at Elstead and many other barrows in the area.
In Roman times the area became a well known pottery centre due to the supply of gault clay, oak woodlands and the nearby roman road from Silchester to Chichester.
In the 17th Century Farnham was a successful market town with Wheat being very prosperous in the area and then was turned to hops, a key ingredient in beer. Other new industries included greenware pottery, wool and cloth.
