Camberley is the main town in the borough of Surrey Heath and its suburbs include Crawley Hill, Yorktown, Diamond Ridge, Heatherside and Old Dean. Many remember Camberley for its recognisable landmark, a white elephant, on the A30 approaching The Meadows roundabout. This was created as advertising by a pipe company which rented the premises. When they closed down, the upkeep of the elephant was written into the tenancy contract, so subsequent businesses have continued to look after it.
