Brook is a hamlet in the Waverley district in south-west Surrey. It is in the far west of Wormley, beyond Sandhills with which it avoids being contiguous due to a narrow, partly woodland buffer. Brook straddles the A286 single carriageway road between Milford and Haslemere.
The Pirrie Hall dates from May 1923. It was built and given to the community by Lord Pirrie K.P. “for the use and benefit of the inhabitants of the hamlets of Brook, Sandhills and adjoining district”. The maintenance of the hall is financed in part by a community association organising annual events such as the May Bank Holiday Brook Fete.
The Brook Fete on the May Bank Holiday, includes a dog show, attractions for children, professional morris dancing, farm produce, rides, prize draws, food and drink tents, and classic vehicles. The Dog & Pheasant hosts the live band Brookfest.
Brook was the origin of the Woodworm cricket bat used by Andrew Flintoff and Kevin Pieterson in the 2005 Ashes winning series. The club is among multiple claimants to have hosted the first person to bowl overarm.
After leaving the Surrey Championship Cricket league in 2012. Brook Cricket Club re-structured over the winter of 2012/13 and re-entered league cricket in the I'Anson Cricket league, a very old cricket league.
