Historic maps of Great Bookham and the local area, hand-drawn by Ordnance Survey cartographers and Samuel Lewis.

The Comic Store

Had this been only 4 years later that could have been me in the photo. Just inside on the right (and so behind the inward opening door) was where the Commando and WPL comics were kept and thus visiting the newsagents was a weekly pilgrimage come pocket money day.

The Old Crown At Bookham 1960`S

Spent a few evenings in here. Used to meet up with my pals for a jar or two. There was Nigel Bennett, Martin & Chris Lodge, Dennis & Ken Peachey, and many others. Happy days.

The Corner

It looks to me, that this view is of Hayters shop on the corner of Church road and The Park. We lads would go in to buy sweets and stuff. The Barn Hall is opposite.
