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.

Woking Through Time

GYFl5KGVHgw-KpNdZ8tYEj0MKRI

Bracknell was developed as a ‘new town’ in 1949, but the area had been evolving since Saxon times. It was a popular hunting ground for kings and queens and it was here that the widowed Catherine of Aragon became friendly with the newly crowned Henry VIII and secretly married him. Secret Bracknell will incorporate many of the little-known stories of royal visitors, highwaymen, murders, ghosts and other incidents hidden beneath the ‘new town’.
