Surrey County Council's Headquarters opened in 1893 and has functioned as the administrative centre for the Authority ever since. The building has been extensively modernised and refurbished over the years, including the Ashcombe block after it was badly damaged on 6 July 1944 by a flying bomb during World War 2. Today, County Hall is home to approximately 1,500 staff.
