John Cobb, the world record land speed holder, lived on Arran Way, the remains of the property were found during an excavation of the area by Tom Munnery, an archaeologist working for the Surrey County Archaeological Unit . Cobb Green is located at the end of Arran Way, very close to The Old Cottage, and is probably a homage to the record breaker.
