Woking is an unusual town as it is both very 'old' and very 'new'. 'Old' Woking is mentioned in the Domesday Book but 'New' Woking was not developed until the nineteenth century as a result of the new railway system and the necessity to find land for a new cemetery because of a cholera epidemic in London. This is a book about Woking with a difference. Woking should really be called 'New' Woking to distinguish it from 'Old' Woking. In this must-have title, Marion Field charts the history of the area through a selection of old and modern photographs to show just what has changed and what has stayed the same.
