The Museum Guide to Dorking

The Museum Guide to Dorking - A Brief History of the Town and Surrounding Villages

By the same author as The Lost Villages.

Discover the familiar: Box Hill, Deepdene, the Dorking Cockerel, EM Forster and Vaughan Williams. Be surprised by the unexpected: rioters, suffragettes, innovators, campaigners and radical thinkers.

The Museum Guide to Dorking combines text from the panels of Dorking Museum's permanent exhibition with reproductions of paintings, posters, photographs and artefacts from its collections, many not on display and most never published before.

This quirky, thought provoking and beautifully illustrated book provides the reader with a unique insight into the history of Dorking, its people, and the surrounding countryside and villages.
