The village of Shere in Surrey has several structures by Edwin Lutyens. These are all small-scale compared to the villas and country houses that he is noted for in this part of Surrey (see for example Munstead Wood  and Goddards).
The first picture is the lychgate of St James' church, built 1901.
The next two pictures are of the Lodge of Shere Manor House, described by Pevsner as "very free, high-spirited massing of 1894, with a big bold chimney".
A pair of cottages a few yards along the road from the lodge are also by Lutyens.
The final picture shows a half-timbered shop with an over-sailing plaster upper floor, 1892.
