Friday Street is a hamlet on the lower slopes of Leith Hill in Surrey, England. It is set well off the main roads around a hammer pond in a wooded valley. It is just to the south of Wotton and the A25 running between Guildford to the west and Dorking to the east.
There are a few houses in this tiny hamlet and an historic inn that bears the name of Stephan Langton, Archbishop of Canterbury during the reign of King John and signatory of the Magna Carta and Martin Tupper, poet and antiquarian, wrote a biography of Stephan Langton in 1858 depicting his time in this area.
In 1984 Friday Street was used as a location for the BBC Television series "The Tripods" based on the books by John Christopher, where, for the sake of the story it became the fictional future village of "Wherton."
