Tongham is a small (but fast-growing) village with a real community feel about it and is classed as a civil parish. We come under Guildford Borough Council and Surrey County Council.  From the population abstracts from 1811 until its evolution into a parish the settlement was a rural one large enough in size to be official classed as a statistically recordable hamlet. Tongham’s now dismantled railway with a station was important for transporting materials to build the new military camp of Aldershot from 1856 until 1870 and the row of shops developed from this line.  Tongham  was originally part of the parish of  Seale  and Tongham and Seale continued to be linked as Parishes until the first meeting of Tongham Parish Council at 6.30 pm on Monday 21st May 1984. Seale then became Seale and Sands Parish Council. Tongham Church was completed in 1865.
