Pirbright is a village in Surrey, England. Pirbright is in the borough of Guildford and has a civil parish council covering the traditional boundaries of the area. Pirbright contains one buffered sub-locality, Stanford Common near the nation's farm animal disease research institute. Explorer Henry Morton Stanley has his imposing boulder grave at the end of the grounds of the grade II* listed medieval church. The nearby Hodge Brook is marked as Congo Stream, between Ruwenzori and Stanley Hills.GeographyPirbright has two communities: army training barracks and designated homes are north of a London main axis (south-west) railway and the slightly dispersed village is south. The village is almost entirely surrounded by heathland, much of it owned by the Ministry of Defence and used by the Army Training Centre, Pirbright. The south and south-east of the parish is mostly woodland and has three small farms. The south-west of the parish has a large military training area, Pirbright Common. Near to the church are several features due to Stanley's association with the village: Hodge Brook is equally marked as Congo Stream, between Ruwenzori and Stanley Hills. Mazamboni Farm is next to Aruwimi Wood.HistoryNameIts name had three medieval variants . It came from Anglo-Saxon Pirige-fyrhþ = "sparse woodland where peartrees grow".
