Send, a village in the English county of Surrey, reputedly got its name as a corruption of the word sand, which is still extracted for construction and other purposes at pits nearby. Send is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 where it is named Sande.

Send is located within 2 miles (3 km) of the M25. The A3 and the Wey Navigation flows through it. The nearest railway station is at West Clandon but Woking is not much further and offers a better service. Nearby villages include Send Marsh, Ripley, Ockham, Woking, Pyrford and West Clandon.

Send appears in Domesday Book of 1086 as "Sande". It was held by Rainald (Reginald) from Alvred de Merleburgh (Marlborough). Its domesday assets were: 20 hides; 1 church, 10 ploughs, 2 mills worth £1 3s 6d, 5 fisheries worth 4s 6d, 84 acres of meadow, woodland worth 160 hogs. It rendered £15 10s 0d. [ [ Surrey Domesday Book] ]

Send was the home of defunct 1950s Formula One and sports car constructor Connaught.

Today the village includes two schools, a small selection of shops, a recreation ground, village hall, one pub, the "New Inn" and the main offices for insurance provider Swiftcover. There are three churches: Send Parish Church, dedicated to St Mary the Virgin, [ [ Picture of the Church "St Mary the Virgin] ] dates from c.1220, St William of York Roman Catholic Church, and Send Evangelical Church. Send Surgery opened in 2003 and serves 7,000 people in Send, Ripley and the surrounding villages. [ [ Send Village Medical Centre] ]

Send's local football team is called "Send United". There is fishing on the River Wey and in the nearby sandpits. There is sailing on Papercourt Lake. [ [ Send Village online] ]

The British guitarist Eric Clapton spent two years as a pupil at Send's one-time secondary modern school (now St. Bede's Church of England Junior School). Another musician Paul Weller lived for several years in Vicarage Lane.

There is a women's prison HMP Send on the site of a former isolation hospital.

On the 23rd January 2008 The Church of St Mary the Virgin, Send won the Visitor Attraction of the Year award at the Guildford Life with Style Awards for 2007/2008. []
