Welcome to the William Cobbett Society

The William Cobbett Society was founded in 1976 to bring together those who have an interest in the life and writings of William Cobbett. A passionate defender of the freedom of the press Cobbett was prepared to defend it at the cost of imprisonment and exile. Please feel free to look around our website getting to know more about William Cobbett as well as the Society.


A sculpture of William Cobbett in the grounds of Hawthorn Lodge, Longbridge, Farnham, designed by the late Sheila Mitchell, fellow of the Royal British Sculptors and President of the British Society of Portrait Sculptors, who was born and brought up in Farnham. Her design shown here as a maquette, was commissioned by the William Cobbett Statue Trust, which was specially set up by her husband Charles Bone PPRI, ARCA, to increase knowledge in Farnham and elsewhere of the town’s most famous son. The statue was unveiled in 2016 by Dame Penelope Keith.

We hold many events each year such as coach tours and talks featuring guest speakers. We have too a good selection of books available for purchase available to members and non-members.
