Summary

This is an exciting glimpse of how much (and how little) the town of Dorking and the villages of the Mole Valley have changed over the past 100 years. The book is beautifully illustrated with old postcards from the extensive collection of Ian Williams, which are carefully matched with modern images of the same scene taken by a local photographic club. Each set of images is captioned with interesting historical facts, folklore, and tales, further enhancing the interest of anyone who lives in or who has visited this beautiful area. The busy market town of Dorking is steeped with history and its surrounding villages are familiar to many people for their outstanding beauty. Brockham, Betchworth, Buckland, Leigh, Newdigate, Holmwood, Ockley, Beare Green, Abinger Hammer, Coldharbour, Boxhill, Mickleham, West Humble, and Ranmore are all included. Ian Williams' book is a treasury of mages and text that locals and visitors alike will return to again and again with interest and enjoyment.
