The drinking fountain on the east side of the Common is opened on June 20 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee. It is designed by Henry Woodyer, the architect of the original Cranleigh school buildings. The Common is used for many school sports. Cranleigh derived its name just after the Norman conquest from its local craneries, its meaning being ‘a woodland clearing visited by cranes’. A crane figure stands on top of the old drinking water fountain, which can still be found in the middle of the village in ‘Fountain Square’, and a pair of cranes adorn the crest of the civic coat of arms of Cranleigh Parish Council.
