Secret Woking, Paperback / softback Book

Secret Woking Paperback / softback

Part of the Secret series

Description

Woking is a rather strange place. The Saxon village of `Old Woking' appears in the Domesday Book but `new' Woking is a nineteenth-century town.

Over the years, the town has continually reinvented itself.

Demolished buildings have been rebuilt and new roads streak across the countryside.

However, the names of roads are often a reminder of Woking's past inhabitants.

Woking has become a popular place to work, and nowadays many people travel from London to work while others reverse the journey to work in the city.

Secret Woking contains a collection of lesser-known facts about the town and `secrets' that will be brought into the open - from owing its existence to a cemetery, something few towns can claim, to a Nazi spy, gruesome murders, royal visitors, a horse's cremation, and a look at a number of colourful eccentrics.

Join Marion Field as she delves into all of these stories and others, and learn more about Woking's hidden past.
