Oxted is a commuter town and civil parish in Surrey, England at the foot of the North Downs, north of East Grinstead and south-east of Croydon.
The original village of Oxted (now Old Oxted) is a small village centred around a short high street with four pubs, The Old Bell, The George Inn, The Crown Inn and The Wheatsheaf. Oxted's oldest church (St Mary's) was built some distance north-east from the original settlement of Oxted, but it is almost surrounded by the new town. The church dates from at least Norman times and stands on a conspicuous mound, perhaps artificial. It is possible that a Saxon church of wattle and daub existed on the site before the later stone construction. With the arrival of the railway in 1884 Oxted boomed around its station, north-east of Old Oxted, and new buildings created "New Oxted". These new buildings were built in the Tudor style. All Saints Catholic Church was built in 1913-1928. It was designed by prominent British "Arts & Crafts" architect James Leonard Williams.
